According to ITV News, a Czech court has acquitted the frontman of US heavy metal band LAMB OF GOD, Randy Blythe, of charges he caused the death of a fan at a concert in Prague three years ago.
The prosecution had accused Blythe, 42, of causing the death of the 19-year old fan by pushing him off the stage at a 2010 concert.
If found guilty of manslaughter, Blythe faced up to ten years in prison. Daniel Nosek’s family was also demanding the equivalent of over $500,000 in damages.
The State Attorney immediately announced his intention to appeal the verdict; he has eight days to put this in writing.
