Randy Blythe Acquitted Of Manslaughter

Lamb Of God Randy Blythe 2013

There is no better way to kickoff Tuesday than with the following story.

After months of uncertainty, Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has been acquitted over allegations he contributed to a fan’s death by pushing him offstage during an overseas tour in the Czech Republic. As a result, Blythe will soon be returning to the United States after nearly a month away.

Before the end of the trial, Blythe addressed the court to express remorse for the incident, but proclaimed his innocence stating, “I know I did not hurt or want to hurt anybody that night. I can understand the pain that the family of Daniel is experiencing. Daniel was a fan of my band. I had no wish to harm him. He was just a boy and I wish he was still here. If ultimately the Czech legal system sentences me to prison, I will do my sentence like a man. I have searched for an answer to this situation, the only one I can find to this tragic and horrible accident.”

Blythe originally spent more than a month behind bars in Prague last summer after he was accused of contributing to the death of 19-year-old fan Daniel Nosek by pushing him offstage at a gig in the city in 2010. Nosek died two weeks later while in a coma due to head injuries.
