According to reports, Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe is not free. In fact, he will remain in the Pankrác Prison in Prague, Czech Republic, for at least the next few days in connection with the death of a 19-year-old fan more than two years ago.
It was expected Blythe would be released today after posting 4 million Czech Koruna bail (approximately $250,000, or what Randy claimed was the equivalent of his annual band salary), but now, it looks like he won’t be free until next week.
Judge Petr Fassati of Prague 8 district court stated: “There may well be certain conditions placed upon [Blythe’s] release, such as staying in the Czech Republic, or the availability of a specific address. If the conditions are violated, it could lead to an international arrest warrant being issued.”
Fuck, man. This is no joke. I feel bad for Randy.
Blythe, 41, was arrested June 27 at the Prague airport on manslaughter charges.
He is accused of shoving the fan off the stage during a show in 2010; the fan sustained a head injury and died two weeks later.
The crime of which Blythe is being accused is punishable by up to ten years in prison.
Lamb of God had said last week they would be issuing a statement today on Randy’s arrest, but now, that statement has been delayed until next week.
