Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has been arrested and charged for manslaughter, according to reports today.
According to reports in the Czech Republic (via NME), police arrested the singer before a show in Prague and charged him with the offence.
The Prague police said: "We have arrested the singer and charged him with the crime of bodily harm of 4th degree and resulting in the death of the fan."
It is believed that the arrest stems back to a Prague gig in 2010 after a fan jumped on the stage and allegedly got into a fight with Blythe. Reports say the fan later died from injuries sustained in that fight, and the authorities appear to believe Blythe contributed to the fan's death.
The only word from the rest of the band so far was a Twitter message which simply said "#Freerandyblyth".
This story is developing, so check back to Ultimate Guitar for the latest on the arrest.
