Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe, who was arrested at the Prague, Czech Republic airport last week and charged with manslaughter stemming from an onstage incident with a fan at a show in 2010 after which the fan died of a head injury, posted 4 million Czech Karuna bail (approximately $200,000) today. However, he won't be able to return home yet; considered a flight risk, Blythe will have to remain in the Czech Republic pending further court action.
According to a report by Blesk.cz, Blythe must remain in the Pankrác Prison in Prague for at least the next ten days. According to Judge Petr Fassati of Prague 8 district court, "There may well be certain conditions placed upon [Blythe's] release, such as staying in the Czech Republic, or the availability of a specific address. If the conditions are violated, it could lead to an international arrest warrant being issued." If convicted he faces up to ten years in jail.
The rest of the band flew back home to Virginia yesterday, and upon their arrival guitarist Mark Morton posted the following message on Twitter: "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."
