Lamb of God's PR firm, Adrenaline PR, has issued the following statement regarding the arrest of frontman Randy Blythe and the details that have been reported on this story:

LAMB OF GOD management will be issuing an official statement on Monday regarding the charges made against singer Randy Blythe. As no formal charges have yet been made and the case is only in the investigation stages, it would be premature to make an official statement filled with false truths or innuendos.

Having said that, management wished to address today one false piece of information that has been included in many of the news stories released so far. Under no circumstances was there a fight of any kind involved. This incident deals with a fan that three times during the concert jumped the barricade and rushed Randy during the performance. It is alleged that the third time, security was not able to reach him and that Randy pushed him back into the audience where supposedly he fell and hit his head.

Again, until the investigation is concluded this weekend, nothing more will be released, but clarity and the facts needed to be addressed on this one reported point which is totally inaccurate.

What's Next?

From a purely superficial and optimistic fan stand point, this sh** should make for good lyrical output...

Randy obviously decked the guy, we have all seen how big of a drunk prick he can be. Just google Morton knocking his a$$ out and you will know. He is a whiney c*** and IMO SHOULD serve a minimum 2 years.

At least then LoG can write some decent material, instead of just adding a choir to everything.

#3, if you weren't a bastard and maybe a half assed waste of air, you'd know Randy quit drinking. The time you are speaking about is off of Killidelphia, quite a few years before he quit.

Randy is a smart, honest guy. He has been off the juice for some time now and I really don't think that has anything to do with this situation.

im curious as to the injury the guy who died had, if it took 2 weeks to actually kill him isnt it possible that the man sustained another injury that combined with the first to kill him? i personally havent heard of a manslaughter incident that took over 2 weeks for someone to die

well after hearing it put this way it does sound like it was self defense and it was the fans fault. i bet they are just looking for a big fat fine.... it usually is about money in the end.

Liver rott,you got it right. Who knows,it's possible that security beat down the fan in questain. I really find it hard to believe that Randy could kill this dude after jumping on stage(which is the venues fault),but whatever. Pay a fine,get to fvck out of dodge! This incedent gives metal a bad rep; Randy is such a evil,big and mean dude. Haha! Funny,yet so sad!

Well, I changed my point of view completely.

At first I thought he was just being aggressive on stage. Fans love to jump up and rock out with the band but this guy obviously took it too far.

ONE VERY IMPORTANT piece of information that I overlooked completely,

Dimebag Darrel.

I really dont need to explain this thoroughly, sure a man brandishing a gun looks different than a headbanger jumping up to rock out.... or does it?

If I could delete post #3 I would, but regardless Randy does sound like he could be a prick while boozed up, but so can anyone.

Hopefully he can put this behind him.

^it doesn't only apply to foreign gov's either brother, our own States are notorious for preying upon non-residents as a considerable and 'viable' source of revenue.

I was once arrested in frikken idaho for PASSING IN A NO PASSING ZONE...threw me in the slammer with a reckless driving charge, bail at $2500. There was NO way I was spending the night in that goddamned podunk fvcking sh!thole, or going back the frikken 1500 miles to the blasted sand pit for the goddamned court date; and so ended up paying the goddamned bail agent's commission, the fvcking attorney to represent me in absentia, and finally the incurred fines to the county...total ended up being very close to original bond amount

Its a common way for authorities to inject 'new' money into local economies via 'legal' extortion of outsiders

Don't know or particularly care about the details here, but it certainly wasn't the shrewdest of decisions for ol' LOG to include Czech in their latest run eh? :)
