After being arrested, freed and then facing trial, Lamb Of God's frontman Randy Blythe has been found not guilty of manslaughter charges today in Prague, Czech Republic, as Novinky.cz reports.

Randy just posted this message on his Instagram account: "I have been found not guilty & acquitted of all charges against me. I am a free man. This photo was taken by my friend @aceyslade- it says it all. Please remember the family of Daniel Nosek in your thoughts & prayers in this difficult time. I only wish for them peace. Thank you for your support. Randy."

The prosecution had accused Blythe of causing the death of the 19-year old fan, Daniel Nosek, by pushing him off the stage at a 2010 concert. Blythe faced up to ten years in prison and now the court, a three-judge panel, delivered the verdict which acquitted him.

Blythe is not required to pay any compensation to the victim's family. The State Attorney immediately announced his intention to appeal the verdict and he has 8 days to put this in writing.

That went well for hipster Randy. Now I wonder if the family of the deceased guy was actually hoping he would be arrested or if they could get their heads around the situation.

And not one person noticed him in the picture. This means it's time for a new kickass album followed by a NORTH AMericaN tour, preferably in Canada. Well just not in Czech Republic.

Glad to hear that common sense prevailed.

I guess he means his clothes that to him might look "hipster".

I wouldn't call that a typical hipster look at all. The rim of the glasses is too small, the hat isn't hipster enough. DOn't see skinny jeans or bodyclinging T-shirt. Plus the music he makes is totally un-hipster

I actually said it because of the whole photograph, which isn't even his fault. Don't take it too seriously

"Please remember the family of Daniel Nosek in your thoughts & prayers in this difficult time." PRAYERS??? WTF? I thought this guy was against religion, to put it mildly.

I thought that was quite classy of him. Even the most stubborn atheist should know that there is a time and place for everything. Just a matter of respect.
Valentin B - 05.03.2013 at 16:59  
I think this is great news and serves everybody involved a lesson, that you have to be careful during concerts and more importantly, that you have to face your actions and take responsibility for them, even if they were foolish and you could be severely punished for them.

Randy could have easily just stayed in the USA and simply evade the prosecution in the Czech Republic by simply not going there, the US government said they have no intention of extraditing, but he came of his own accord.
Ellrohir - 05.03.2013 at 17:31  
The trial will continue, the prosecution appealed against the decission

Totally agree. A life was lost let's not forget this.

Lit. - 05.03.2013 at 19:40  
Good for him. Glad to see the system works.
The Czech Republic system, at least.
Dentura - 05.03.2013 at 19:44  
Even though I'm not the biggest fan of Lamb of God's work, that's actually good to hear!
GoldenGod2112 - 05.03.2013 at 20:22  
Awesome! Great for him! I'm not too great of a Lamb of God fan, but I am happy to hear he is free and looking forward to maybe seeing them at Mayhem Fest!
LeChron James - 05.03.2013 at 21:32  
Good for Randy! Now he and LOG can go back to making mediocre records again.
RottingDeathHead - 05.03.2013 at 21:41  
If it was me I wouldve just paid my bail then said "Fuck the czech republic" and never return.
Misfit74 - 06.03.2013 at 00:13  
Good news.
Nemo Atkins - 06.03.2013 at 00:24  
The fact there is an intention to appeal means Randy isn't completely out of the woods yet. However, he's definitely at the edge of them.

Something something something something something something sunglasses this case has been laid to rest

Does in Cz exist doble jeopardy like it has in USA?

PS if you ansver quote me, way to many comments to read
allgutsnoglory - 06.03.2013 at 03:54  
Still bullshit that the states didn't back him up on anything. If it was a cunt popstar they'd get right on top of that shit. Still glad this bullshit is past him.
Dark Blood - 06.03.2013 at 05:25  
I'm very glad for him. Now "just go home" and enjoy it.

RIP Daniel Nosek.
DragonSavior X10 - 06.03.2013 at 06:21  
He's not a prisoner, he is a free man!

Not much of a LoG fan, but I'm glad to hear this news. I still feel bad for the family of the victim though.
Opethian - 06.03.2013 at 07:19  
Yaay now he can return to his mediocre band and continue to play shit

this aint double jeopardy...the case still havent been legally closed - the court made a decision, but if prosecution or defense (or both) doesn't like the decision, they may appeal and higher level court judges the case - they may either confirm the verdict, return the case back to lower court and order the trial to start again from scratch, or even change the decision if they found severe mistakes in line of reasoning or some procedural mistakes...then you cant normally appeal against this decision (although there are some special ways to defend), so this is finally where the trial ends and where we can say "Randy is not guilty and free"...it will take couple of months though
Introspekrieg - 06.03.2013 at 14:45  
Do you really think he is going to travel back there for the prosecution's appeal? The only ones getting any money out of this prolonged straw-grasping are the lawyers.

i dont think it will be necessary for Randy to be physically present, but its mainly up to him i guess...also dont forget that the attorney is here to get suspect in jail (same as defense is here to get anyone out no matter what), so no wonder he appealed...but i think the lawyer of the family didnt, so it is probable the higher court will just confirm the verdict...but we have to wait still
Jtbmetal123 - 06.03.2013 at 16:58  
Im glad hes coming back and Lamb Of God can start jamming again!
SublimeDragon - 07.03.2013 at 04:52

Anybody notice the angry girl in the middle of the picture, lol?

Why do you feel the need to say that. A man died and an innocent man nearly went to prison. Metal geads are our family. It doesn't matter where they are from ir what band they are in. Wheres your compassion man?
