According to a spokesperson from the Czech Republic prison system, Randy Blythe, lead singer of the American heavy metal outfit Lamb of God was finally released from jail yesterday, after being held on a manslaughter charge.
"The decision was reached yesterday at the end of a 16-hour closed session. The only condition of release was the approximately 8 million Czech Koruna bail," Prague court spokeswoman Martina Lhotáková said.
He is expected to return home to the United States, but will have to return to the Czech Republic to face trial.
"That’s what he wants to do," Blythe’s Czech attorney Martin Radvan told Radio Prague, "As a world-renowned artist, in a specific genre of music, of course, he cannot afford to simply disappear. There are posters with his picture all around the world, and if he wants to continue performing, he will have to return. And he wants to return because he believes he is not guilty of anything he has been charged with."
Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe was arrested in June on charges of manslaughter stemming from a "tragic incident" in Prague at a Lamb of God performance on May 24, 2010, which led to a death.
More information will be revealed as soon as it becomes available.
