News: Lamb of God Management Releases Official Statement on Blythe Charges

Lamb Of God management has released an official statement in regard to the arrest and possible manslaughter charges being faced by Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe. The full statement can be read below.

In the statement, Lamb Of God’s management expressed their appreciation to the legion of Blythe supporters around the world, and also explained the confusing and harrowing nature of Blyhte’s predicament. The statement closed with a link to Blyhte’s Legal Fund on Facebook.

Blythe was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by Czech police at the Prague airport on Wednesday, June 27. It is alleged that during a May 24, 2010 Lamb Of God concert, Blythe pushed a 19-year-old fan, who had climbed onstage, back into the audience. The fan lapsed into a coma and died of a bleeding in the brain fourteen days later.

While Blythe posted a 4 million Czech Koruna bail (approximately $200,000) earlier this week, he is still being held in custody, where he could remain for a further twenty days.

Here is the complete statement:

“First of all, thanks to everyone who has reached out in support of Randy and each of us in this terrible situation. It’s noted and very much appreciated.

“We have been keeping our heads down and not speaking out due to the fluid nature of the situation and the constantly changing information that even we receive daily. Within an hour, things can do endless 180’s. It’s maddening to try and make heads or tails.

“We’re taking the time to speak to you as it has been a significant period of time since this situation began, and while nothing is immediately clear to any of us, we are not trying to keep anyone in the dark. We have reached out and are making use of the resources we have acquired to help our brother, who is still detained in a Czech jail.

“In the two years since, we were never notified of anything related to this incident.

“Randy is our brother and we assure you, we are all staying very positive for him, working endlessly behind the scenes to provide any and all assistance possible.

“The best we can do is to stay positive and continue to support our friend that we know is innocent. We know justice will prevail, and we will continue to do our part to support our friend.”
