As previously reported by Novinky.cz, a Czech news site, Blythe was arrested yesterday in Prague, Czech Republic on charges of manslaughter. The arrest is a result of an altercation that Blythe had with a fan on a concert that took place on May 24, 2010 in Prague. Allegedly, a fan went on stage during the show and Blythe violently kicked the fan off the stage. The fan then fell hard on the floor and hurt his head; he ended up losing his life due to internal bleeding. Here is a statement from Czech Police regarding Blythe's prison sentence, IF convicted.
“For bodily injury resulting in death under section 146, paragraph 4 of the criminal code threatens Blythe five to ten years in prison.”Here is a statement from Willie Adler regarding this matter:
"It's been a rough couple of days. All I can say is that I can't recall that particular show let alone a fan being beaten on the stage. I think I would've noticed something like that considering the Dime thing.
"We're all still here in the Czech Republic awaiting what is to happen. We hope we'll be able to get Randy out this afternoon. All our thoughts are with him as well as the family of the deceased fan. We have no real clue as to what happened to him, but we send our condolences. All we try to do is entertain; the fans are why we're here. We would never try and harm anyone."
