He probably didn't even know anything happened to the guy, which is why the whole story is fishy. If
the dude died from his injuries, you'd think we woulda heard about this sooner, not only when it
became possible 3for the authorities to catch him.

Not sure this is true but someone said they actually saw this happen. Apparently two fans got up on the stage, Randy started fighting with them, they of course, outnumbering him, beat him down and actually sat on top of him, and when he was finally able to get up he grabbed one of them by the hair and violently threw them down off the stage and they landed on their head.

Could be total bullshit but w/e. Whole thing sounds sketchy.

Well, he obviously didn't know he killed the guy or he wouldn't have gone back. Sucks for him. Perhaps they can argue self defense if it was someone who rushed the stage, but they aren't gonna be in a US court so he's probably screwed. I'm sure there's video footage.

Sounds a lot like a set-up if you ask me.

#1 - If he the guy really ended up dead, why wasn't the band notified back then?

#2 - And why is it impossible to find footage of Blythe killing the dude, when there are more than plenty of videos of that show? Notice that not even the sources have that kinda material.

"For a wounded man shall say to his assailant, "If I live, I will kill you, if I die, you are forgiven." such is the rule of honor."

Expected this to be just a fight or something but holy hell MANSLAUGHTER?! And this shit was two years ago?? Wtf. You would think someone had more of a problem with this if Randy was really to blame and would somehow let him know he had charges on him over all this time. He shows up to play a show and someone in the crowd is like "he killed my brother!" or something? Sounds really fishy. Hopefully his lawyers do something for him because this sounds pretty hokey.

Geeze, Limp Bizkit incited massive moshing at Big Day Out in Aus and a poor girl was killed. The boys were let off with a small slap on the wrist. Was it Woodstock 1999 that a riot broke out and there was mass raping, looting and huge destruction? Chilli Peppers played Fire, and of course an actual huge fire started in the crowd. Randy pushes on guy that invaded the stage and gets maximum manslaughter? They waited 2 years for this? They could of tweeted him back in 2010, #oh hey you killed this kid, yeah could you please come back here so we can kindly arrest you thanks much
