Lamb of God Singer Charged

Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe will be tried for causing a fan’s death after allegedly throwing him off stage during a concert in Czech Republic in 2010.

He was originally arrested June 29 when returning to the country to play a show at Prague’s Hard Rock Café.

Blythe spent five weeks in custody of Czech authorities before being released on bail in August. He has since been in the United States.

The charge of causing bodily harm to another person with lethal consequences relates to an incident at the city’s Abaton nightclub, when a fan reportedly died from injuries occurred after jumping on stage.

Prague authorities claim Blythe pushed the fan off the stage and therefore was responsible for the resulting death.

On Dec. 3, the Richmond-based band’s manager Larry Mazer said Blythe responded professionally to the large number of fans who rushed the stage amid lax security.

He also said the singer will vigorously defend himself against the charge of causing a fan’s death.
