Randy Blythe, the energetic frontman of Philadelphia based heavy metal band ‘Lamb of God’, has been acquitted of the manslaughter charges brought against him over the death of a fan three years ago.
Randy Blythe, 42, was accused of shoving 19-year-old fan ‘Daniel Nosek’, off the stage during the bands set in Prague in 2010, which caused him to hit his head on the floor. It is said the fan was then taken to hospital where he died several weeks later from head injuries.
Blythe, who was charged with the offense ‘Causing an injury leading to death’, although admitting to shoving a fan off the stage during the 2010 show, said he believed the person was unharmed, and that he had not even learned of Nosek’s death, or the prosecution over the incident until he was arrested at Prague airport, almost 2 years later, when the band returned for another gig in June 2012.
However, the verdict ruled that Blythe’s actions did not constitute a crime, and no further explanation of the verdict was given, and prosecutors immediately appealed against the acquittal to the Czech high court.
He would have faced up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
