Witness Account To The LAMB OF GOD Show That Describes Randy Blythe 'Throwing A Kid Down'
Earlier today (Thursday June 28, 2012) Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe was arrested and charged with manslaughter stemming from a 2010 incident at the Abaton in Prague, Czech Republic. Blythe's management team were quick to issue a statement stating Randy was "wrongly accused, lawyers are dealing with it, and we expect him to be fully exonerated."
A local Czech blogger wrote a review about the entire confrontation between Randy Blythe and the fan some two years ago. Sicmaggot blog stated "Randy behaved exactly as I expected him to, a son of a bitch who pisses off everyone. He's confirmed by firing up several fans. [Randy] was very irritated when someone decided to join him on stage. At first Randy hit him a lot, then Randy jumped on him to hold him down while he continued singing? When the fan got up, Randy took him by the hair and threw down quite quickly. It was a good thing the fan was so dazed that he probably felt nothing. It took him a little while to realize what happened and as he struggled to get his breathe back. Randy does behave quite pretentious, but the performance was important to him."
Fans in attendance at the show commented:
"Everything OK with that guy who fell down after a stage-push? We saw ambulance late after concert"
"He came down with a thud, when he fell down. The kid died after 14 days in a coma for bleeding in the brain!"
"OMG impossible! The vocalist should be sued then... He pulled him really heavily."
