Lamb of God's Randy Blythe was arrested yesterday in Prague on charges of manslaughter stemming from a 2010 altercation with a Czech fan who came onstage during one of the band's shows and later died from injuries he sustained in the scuffle.
Czech news outlet Novinky reports that the as-yet-unnamed fan jumped on the low stage during the May 24, 2010 show at a venue called Abaton, and that he and Blythe got into a fight. Though there is still no video evidence of the fight online (you can watch them performing "In Your Words" at the show in question below), it is rumored by "those who know the band" that he might have been hit in the head with a microphone before being removed from the stage by security.
"Randy Blythe was falsely accused," reads a statement from representatives of Lamb of God's. "There is a team of lawyers working on it and he will be exonerated." Blythe's brother Mark has also said that the charge is "bogus and outrageous and will be dropped immediately." The Richmond, Virginia, band was forced to cancel its show at Prague's Rock Café last night tweeted "#FreeRandyBlythe."
