He's been officially charged
Randy Blythe in a Prague Court
The saga of Randy Blythe continues with the addition formal manslaughter charges. Authorities in Prague leveled the charge of manslaughter with intent to cause bodily harm against the Lamb of God front man. This all stems from a 2010 concert in Prague where Blythe is accused of throwing a fan off the stage multiple times. The final time the fan was thrown off the stage, he hit his head and died days later. Larry Mazer, the band’s manager, says Blythe responded to a large number of fans who tend to rush the stage during performances, but with lax security, fans were able to make it up on the stage where security and Blythe proceeded to throw people away from the band. Mazer is also providing some insight into a possible defense saying that he did not intend to harm anybody. Blythe was held in a Prauge jail for five weeks earlier this year. He was released on bail.
