Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe was arrested and pending release on bail in Prague, Czech Republic on manslaughter charges stemming from a 2010 incident in which a fan died after a stage-diving incident.
A Czech news station features video of the alleged incident (which you can see below). In the clip, singer Randy Blythe can be seen with a the 19-year-old concert goer who died after hitting the floor. The video could be perceived as Blythe throwing the now deceased fan from the stage. The outrage for Blythe's arrest has been sweeping the internet with musicians such as Scott Ian from Anthrax expressing concern for the fellow artist.
Lamb of God have delayed their official statement on the issue until later this week but guitarist Mark Morton tweeted the following in regards to the incident on July 1st.
