Lamb of God Vocalist Bailed
2012-06-30 by Ikarus14 | 64 Comments
Reportedly, Randy Blythe has been released from jail on bail in Prague after his recent arrest on June 28th. He has been jailed and charged with manslaughter relating to an incident in 2010 when a fan rushed the stage during a performance, prompting Blythe to push him back into the crowd head first and resulting in a fatal injury. Guitarist Mark Morton tweeted “Today just turned into a FANTASTIC day!!!”

What you don't hear is whether or not the guy who ran on stage was throwing down on Randy. Shit happens when violence ensues and it just sucks this guy who decided to jump the stage got a little more than he bargained for.

Saw the video of the incident... these charges are ridiculous IMO. I'm not the biggest fan of this band but I do own As Palaces Burn.

Footage from the video which was shown on a CZ news site basically shows a fat security guard irish whipping a kid (that looks like the victim) off the stage and Randy giving a slight shove because it was happening in front of him. If this guy actually gets convicted then a lot of other bands are probably guilty as well. It was literally a one handed shove with the security guard doing almost all of the work.

It did look like a nasty fall if he wasn't caught by the crowd though...

"who is to say it was the fall. maybe he got trampled or fucked up in the pit." Or maybe he just had aids and suddenly came down with pneumonia which killed him 14 days later but he didn't know he had it

Pushing a guy off a stage so that he suffers a fatal head injury? Yes, the guy shouldn't have been able to get up there, but Randy shouldn't have been a dick and solved it himself.

ftfy. Are you serious? He defended himself, the case brought against him is flimsy at best.

the majority of manslaughter cases are freak accidents. It just depends on the degree of manslaughter, either way Randy actually has a high chance of being screwed; for his own sake I hope he doesn't.

just read that his bail was approximately $200,000. Damn. Randy said that was about how much is yearly earnings are. At least he's doing alright for himself

Here's the news. Video is there too.

And if anyone from the "mainstream" metal community is nuts enough to kill a person, it's Randy. Be it by accident or intention. He's stupid.

It's obviously not his fault. But the kid's family won't say the same. They need compensation because it's a life we're talking about.
