New details have now come to light in the ongoing saga of Lamb of God front man Randy Blythe being held in the Czech Republic. Blythe had previously posted bail but remained in custody due to a complaint filed by the prosecutor in the case.
Praha.idnes.cz is now reporting that the prosecutor’s complaint to block Blythe’s bail has been dismissed, however his bail has now been doubled to $400,000. It is unclear if the additional bail has been paid or if Blythe will be released.
Blythe is being held on manslaughter charges in connection with a Lamb of God show in 2010 when a 19 year old fan was allegedly pushed off the stage and subsequently died several weeks later. The band has remained fairly quiet on the issue in the three weeks Blythe has been detained, so far only issuing the following statement:
"First of all, thanks to everyone who has reached out in support of Randy and each of us in this terrible situation. It’s noted and very much appreciated.
"We have been keeping our heads down and not speaking out due to the fluid nature of the situation and the constantly changing information that even we receive daily. Within an hour things can do endless 180’s. It’s maddening to try and make heads or tails.
"We’re taking the time to speak to you as it has been a significant period of time since this situation began and while nothing is immediately clear to any of us, we are not trying to keep anyone in the dark.
"We have reached out and are making use of the resources we have acquired to help our brother who is still detained in Czech jail.
"In the two years since, we were never notified of anything related to this incident. Randy is our brother and we assure you, we are all staying very positive for him, working endlessly behind the scenes to provide any and all assistance possible.
"The best we can do is to stay positive and continue to support our friend that we know is innocent. We know that justice will prevail and we will continue to do our part to support our friend."
