This is probably the worst news anyone in the metal community has reported on/heard in the last few days, and it’s no different for us here at MR. So here we go. Lamb of God front man Randy Blythe has been formally charged with manslaughter by the Czech Republic and will have to go and stand trial. Wow did that suck to write. If you don’t know the deal click right here to find more but basically what they are claiming is that Blythe tossed a kid off stage and that he later died from injuries sustained. There’s a lot of controversy on weather or not he ever even tossed the kid or if it was a bouncer and it looks like it might be up to the courts to decide now.
A Czech news portal called Novinky.cz is reporting that a Czech state attorney filed criminal charges against Blythe on Friday (November 30) related to the death of a fan in Prague two years ago. The attorney’s office spokeswoman Štepánka Zenklová told the Czech News Agency (CTK) the Prague City Court has three months to set the trial date or return the case to the police and state attorney for further investigation.
Blythe has always maintained that he would return to the Czech Republic to stand trial and unfortunately that may happen now. To read several statements from Blythe on the incident click here because I’m running out of space here.Add to My Radar
