Randy Blythe Found Not Guilty
Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe was found "not guilty" of manslaughter on March 5, 2013, after a controversial legal situation that lasted nine months, Loudwire reports. After the court's original ruling, prosecutors appealed the decision. However, the ruling was just re-evaluated by a Czech court and the vocalist's verdict has been upheld, effectively putting an end to the case. Blythe was unexpectedly arrested at a Czech airport in June 2012, facing manslaughter charges for the death of Lamb of God fan Daniel Nosek. The singer was accused of pushing Nosek of the stage during a 2010 Czech Lamb of God performance. Nosek allegedly hit his head on the venue floor during the show, later leading to the 19-year-old fan's demise. After Blythe was finally given the "not guilty" verdict, the Prague State Attorney announced that he would appeal the court's decision. However, the appeal failed, which leaves Blythe as a free man. Lamb of God tweeted the news earlier today (June 5):
"I have been found not guilty and acquitted of all charges against me," Blythe posted on his Instagram account shortly after his initial ruling. "I am a free man. Please remember the family of Daniel Nosek in your thoughts and prayers in this difficult time. I only wish for them peace. Thank you for your support." Lamb of God are currently on a North American tour with Decapitated and Anciients. Hardcore act Terror were forced to drop out of the tour due to health issues, and the Acacia Strain are scheduled to join the tour in Indiana on June 12.
