Randy Blythe Freed From Jail
Randy Blythe has been freed after spending four weeks in a Czech prison. He has already boarded a flight to New York to step back on US soil and see his family. The Lamb Of God frontman was arrested in late June for allegedly pushing a fan from the stage into the crowd at a show in Prague two years ago, which may have caused a fatal injury. Blythe maintains his innocence, and Classic Rock reports that Czech authorities never formally charged him. His case will be heard in November. Blythe initially posted bail of $200,000 roughly equal to his annual salary but the prosecutor filed a complaint to say he was a flight risk, meaning they believed he would not return to face the court. His bail was then doubled to $400,000, and the prosecutor repeated their complaint, but a decision was reached yesterday (August 4) to free him. "As a world-renowned artist, in a specific genre of music, of course, he cannot afford to simply disappear," explained his attorney Martin Radvan (via Blabbermouth), who told the court that his position as a public figure would make it difficult to go into hiding. "If he wants to continue performing, he will have to return. And he wants to return because he believes he is not guilty of anything he has been charged with." Blythe's defence case is strong, according to Jonathan Crane from the Prague Post. "Even if Randy was responsible for the alleged attack, the expert said that who is to say that he wasn't accidentally kicked or trodden on or left without help by fans below the stage," he said.
