Lamb of God’s D. Randall "Randy" Blythe charged with manslaughter – Music News
The heavy-metal singer D. Randall "Randy" Blythe has been reportedly charged with manslaughter for a suspected dispute at a 2010 Lamb of God show.
Lamb of God was scheduled to perform at Rock Cafe in Prague on Thursday, but the show was cancelled as Randy was brought in for questioning. The news spread like jungle fire and gave a good topic to people to come up with their wild guesses and opinions.
Some say that the he could face 5 to 10 years in prison if the case turns against him.
Some reports also show that he was arrested and charged with "the crime of bodily harm of 4th degree, which resulted in the death of a fan. Nonetheless, the representatives for the band say he hasn’t been formally charged.
According to Czech media, incident took place during a show at Prague’s Club Abaton in May, 2010. It involved a concertgoer repeatedly rushing the stage from the crowd. He was ejected from the stage and later bid farewell to life due to head injuries.
In this connection, the longtime publicist of Lamb of God, Maria Ferrero, stated: "Under no circumstances was there a fight of any kind involved. This incident deals with a fan that three times during the 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. Again, until the investigation is concluded this weekend, nothing more will be
released, but clarity and the facts needed to be addressed on this one reported point which is totally inaccurate."
Randy is still under investigation, but the case is likely to reach a final decision on Monday.
