Lamb Of God frontman acquitted of manslaughterAccording to Blesk.cz and Novinky.cz, Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has been found not guilty of manslaughter earlier today (Tuesday, March 5) by a three-judge panel in the Czech Republic.
Blythe was facing the possibility of conviction and a long-term jail sentence after a May 2010 incident in which a fan, Daniel Nosek, who attended a Lamb Of God performance in Prague, died almost a month later, allegedly from injuries sustained when he was thrown off the stage.
"I would like to thank the family of Daniel Nosek for not attacking me in the press and for their kind words to me in this court," Randy said in a statement to the court before the verdict was announced. "I am very sorry for their loss.
"Daniel was a fan of my band. I had no wish to harm him. He was just a biy and I wish he was still here.
"If, ultimately the Czech legal system sentences me to prison, I will do my sentence like a man.
"If I am to remain free, I will do my best to insure that conditions at this concert will not occur again with my band and other bands so that the fans will remain safe.
"I have searched for an answer to this situation. The only one I can find is that it was a tragic, horrible accident."
