Randy Blythe from LAMB OF GOD is known for not taking any sh&t from anybody! According to Novinky.cz, a Czech news site, Blythe has been arrested in Prague, Czech Republic on charges of manslaughter. The arrest (which happened today) 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:
"We have arrested singer year 1971, which was accused of a crime of bodily harm in the 4th paragraph, thus resulting in death", said Prague police spokeswoman to news Kropáčová Eve with the fact that the police will have more things to say.
The band was scheduled to perform at the Rock Café in Prague tonight with All Shall Perish and Skeletonwitch; according to this link Lamb of God was forced to cancel this evenings performance. Fan-filmed videos of the concert in question can be seen HERE, and none of the videos show any kind of incident happening. This supports Lamb of God’s longtime publicity firm Adrenaline PR's comments that Blythe has been “wrongfully accused, lawyers are dealing with it, and we expect him to be fully exonerated.”
