Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has been released from jail following his arrest for alleged manslaughter.
Blythe was arrested on Wednesday by police in Prague, who later charged him with manslaughter. He is believed to have been released after posting around $200,000 in bail - apparently equal to Randy's annual salary.
The singer appeared in court with two lawyers and with his shoelaces removed, where he is accused of causing an injury which put one 19-year-old fan, Daniel N.
, into a coma. He died two weeks later. A post-mortem found that Daniel had not taken drugs or alcohol when he sustained the fatal injury.
With only grainy fan footage of the event, it remains unclear what exactly happened on the night. Previous reports suggested that the fan had repeatedly ran onto the stage and towards Randy, which some assumed had led to a fight between the pair.
Now Lamb Of God's PR representatives have issued a statement where they insist there was no fight, and the injury was just a tragic accident:
"Under no circumstances was there a fight of any kind involved [during Lamb Of God's 2010 concert]," read the statement by Adrenaline PR (via Blabbermouth). "This incident deals with a fan that three times during the concert jumped the barricade and rushed Randy during the performance. It is alleged that the third time, security was not able to reach him and that Randy pushed him back into the audience where supposedly he fell and hit his head."
If found guilty, Randy could face up to 10 years in prison.
"We're all concerned about him. We're hoping for the best," said Randy's brother Mark. Lamb Of God will issue a statement today.
