Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has been acquitted of manslaughter.
It was one of last year's saddest - and most complex - news stories. Lamb Of God played a show in the Czech Republic back in 2010, and during the concert a fan is alleged to have attempted to get onstage.
During the resulting fracas, the 19 year old fell to the ground and endured injuries which later killed him. The victim's family raised questions about the conduct of frontman Randy Blythe, leading to the singer being arrested on charges of manslaughter last year.
A tragic turn of events, the singer continually protested his innocence. Fighting the charges, Randy Blythe was seemingly cleared of manslaughter by a Czech Republic court this morning.
The news broke via Metal Hammer before ITV confirmed initial reports. Randy Blythe has posted the following statement on his Instagram account: “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”.
