Lamb Of God Singer Arrested Over 'Fans Manslaughter'
2 July 2012
Randy Blythe, the singer in metal giants Lamb of God, who recently visited India has been arrested, accused of the 'manslaughter' of a fan.
Reports suggest that Blythe was arrested when the band played in Prague this weekend although the incident in question actually occurred on May 24, 2010 at a past Prague show, when the victim died of a injury following a fall from the stage.
Lamb of God’s management have quickly come forward to explain that “no formal charges have yet been made” and that “the case is only in the investigation stages.”
“Under no circumstances was there a fight of any kind involved”, their statement continued. “This incident deals with a fan that three times during a 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.”
Lamb of God’s publicists have also stated that Blythe, 41 was “wrongly accused, lawyers are dealing with it, and we expect him to be fully exonerated”.
Update: Lamb of God's twitter suggests that he was released on bail earlier today but will remain in the Czech Republic for at least 2 more days.
