Randy Blythe acquitted of manslaughter charges

Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe has been acquitted of manslaughter charges stemming from a fan’s death after a 2010 concert in Prague.

A panel of judges in the Czech court ruled on Tuesday that concert promoters were primarily responsible for the death of the 19-year-old Daniel Nosek, who died after being allegedly thrown from the stage by Blythe. The Czech court concluded that Blythe’s actions didn’t constitute a crime.

Prior to the trial Blythe made this statement:

“As I’ve stated previously, I do not wish to avoid my responsibility, and if I thought I were guilty I would plead guilty right now. I still believe I acted responsibly to protect myself, my band, our equipment and our audience. I did not strike anyone or run across the stage to push anyone.”

Following the court’s decision Blythe made the following post via his personal Instagram:

“I have been found not guilty & acquitted of all charges against me. I am a free man. This photo was taken by my friend @aceyslade- it says it all. Please remember the family of Daniel Nosek in your thoughts & prayers in this difficult time. I only wish for them peace. Thank you for your support- Randy”

According to multiple sources, prosecutors have appealed the decision.
