LAMB OF GOD’s Randy Blythe Cleared In Czech Republic Fan’s Death

Wednesday, 5th June 2013

Prague, Czech Republic’s High Court has upheld the acquittal of LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe, accused of causing a teenage fan’s death at a concert in the Czech Republic three years ago.

Blythe was charged in December in Prague with causing bodily harm to another person with lethal consequences. He was accused of pushing a 19-year-old who had climbed onto the stage during a 2010 LAMB OF GOD concert at Prague’s Abaton club. The man’s head hit the floor and he later died of a head injury.

Prague’s Municipal court ruled March 5th that Blythe was not guilty but the state prosecutor appealed. Spokesman Jan Fort says Prague’s High Court upheld that verdict on Wednesday. Its decision is final.

LAMB OF GOD is currently on a North American tour with with DECAPITATED, TERROR, and ANCIIENTS.
