We're back at our computers ready to report on all the latest breaking news in this case of Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe being accused of manslaughter in the Czech Republic. On Saturday, Blythe appeared at a court hearing where his bail was set at $200,000 USD, which the frontman claimed was actually his annual income (so a big hit for Blythe). Nevertheless, Blythe agreed to pay it, and should be getting released today.
His bandmates have returned backed to the states over the weekend, with Mark Morton tweeting:
"Finally HOME! 4/5 of us anyway. I can't wait to give Randy a big bear hug and kiss his pointy, stubbly face! Thanx for all the support y'all! Flooded with questions about Randy. I truly understand and appreciate [your] concern. But it would be irresponsible for me to comment on any of it. Again….thank y'all SOOOO much for your love and support during these difficult times. It means the world to us."
Now the big shocker is a local Czech report have acquired footage of Randy pushing a fan off stage. The news report is quick to point out that this may not be the footage of the stage jump that led to the fan's death, but was included to illustrate how such a thing could happen. Take a look:
Again, while it's unknown if this is the footage of the actual event in question, it illustrates that Randy was just focusing on vocals and getting the fan out of the way. Also, if this IS the video in question, there is clearly a security guard, the width of 3 Randys doing some pushing as well.
An image has also been circulated of the victim of brain trauma allegedly caused by this incident, identified as Daniel N.:
Either way, we should be getting more information later in the day about this and we will certainly keep you up to date. Finally, Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton is asking on Twitter for everybody to wear Lamb of God shirts on the Fourth of July in support of Randy.
