RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – The singer for Lamb of God, the world-famous,
Richmond-based heavy metal band, was arrested this week in Prague in the
Czech Republic and charged in connection with the death of a fan two
Randy Blythe, 41, was arrested when Lamb of God went to Prague for
their show Thursday night at the Rock Café. He’s charged with
manslaughter for the fatal injury that occurred at their show May 24,
2010 at another venue in Prague, according to Czech news report.
Reportedly, Blythe struck or fought with the fan who had come on stage, and that person later died.
The four-time Grammy-nominated band cancelled Thursday’s show in
Prague. There’s no mention on the band’s social sites about the status
of Friday’s show in Leipzig, Germany.
Lamb Of God’s publicist, Adrenaline PR, stated to a music publication
that Randy was “wrongly accused, lawyers are dealing with it, and we
expect him to be fully exonerated.”
Randy’s brother, Mark Blythe, told CBS-6 that he’s awaiting further
details and said the charge is “bogus and outrageous and will be dropped
