Free Randy

A spokesperson for the Czech prison Randy [Blythe of Lamb of God] was being held at confirmed that he was released yesterday afternoon. The Prague Municipal Court's ruling against the prosecutor of the Prague 8 District Court was made on Thursday afternoon behind closed doors.

"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.

Randy Blythe's Czech attorney Martin Radvan told Radio Prague that he expects the Lamb Of God frontman to be able to return home, but will have to return to the Czech Republic to face trial. -[Metalhammer]

Sounds like FOR NOW, the nightmare is over. God bless, Randy.

Randy Blythe was charged with manslaughter after a fan died during a show in Prague on May 24, 2010. He was detained shortly before he was set to play a different venue in the same city.

God Bless? Seriously? Firstly, you are talking about Randy Blythe. Secondly, this is Brooklyn Vegan, not the Grammys.

Firstly, is 'firstly' a word that people past fifth grade use? Secondly, fuck off.

Maybe we can get him and Harley to start beating up and stabbing all these trendy faggot scarves with hideous glasses and horrid PBR drool drying up on their disgusting patch hair that's somehow called a beard on their wuffly chin, along with the retina-burning colored plaid shirts and scarves. Oh, and they'll both rape all their arty-nerd, jaded, anti-social, feminist "girlfriends" too! Winning.

11:10- I tend to think that I might agree with your sentiment, but you are kind of all over the place. Great use of the word "wuffly", though. I hate hipsters as much as anyone, but I can't believe you unearthed "winning".

"8 million Czech Koruna bail" -- that's like 12 bucks, right?

Manslaughter in the Czech republic, huh?

Sounds like some big wig Czech official wasn't too pleased with ol' Randy's performance at the local glory hole.

Is American sausage really that inferior to European sausage?

This coward will never go back for his trial. Typical garbage American. Only an American could get away with killing someone overseas and never face any real consequences. Hope this kids family hires a hit man to administer real justice when Randy refuses to return.

He should be imprisoned for life.


Due to sucking.

Dude, you are totally transparent as both American and a novice troll. You need to go back to bitch school and learn how to troll better, or else you will be ignored as the rest of the world catches on to your shtick. It's on par with lins*ani*ty or ipods guy, only without the initial chuckle.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 12:36 PM

I don't know what the sausages in Czech have for standards. Metal show glory holes must be over the rainbow (LOL) over there.

Randy once gave me the MOST PRO hummer that I've ever received at the Saint Vitus glory hole. \m/

As a matter of fact, that's how I knew something was up with him. I was receiving a sub par slobbing at Saint Vitus, so I looked it up: sure enough, Randy had been incarcerated in Prague. Some Randy imposter had taken his shifts.

Come home soon, Randy. We've been missing you so much.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 12:46 PM

Everyone's on here just making jokes. This guy's a murderer. This shit isn't funny. I can't believe they'd even consider letting him out of jail.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 12:48 PM

actually, the fan falling looks to be more the fault of a czech bouncer who has not even been considered a suspect. the whole case is bullshit. good for him that he is out of that country.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 12:53 PM

^ No it actually doesn't look to be the bouncers fault. Randy can be seen grabbing the kid by the back of his neck and throwing him into the audience = manslaughter.

people shouldn't get on stage at concerts unless they are in the band or with the venue.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:05 PM

^ Yeah, they should be literally be murdered if they do, right?

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:08 PM

12:03-sounds like you got served and are still in shock over it. sucks to be you, pal.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:09 PM

isn't there a disclaimer on tickets about injury? he wasn't murdered at a concert. he died due to injuries sustained from his actions and choices at a concert. he also jumped on and off the stage multiple times.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:11 PM

^ Nope, he died from Randy grabbing him on the back of the neck and throwing him to the floor.

Manslaughter.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:13 PM

1:13pm were you at the fucking concert?!

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:15 PM

Not only was 1:13 there, but he knows the definition of "manslaughter" in the Czech Republic and has already seen that all of the legal elements have been satisfied... which is why they're letting Randy go obviously. Doesn't that all make sense?

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:19 PM

Don't feed the trolls and they will die.
True fact.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:21 PM

and before he jumps on a non-issue, by "letting Randy go" I mean "releasing him from custody"

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:23 PM

@1:15 I saw the video. It shows exactly what happened. There is no question Randy's responsible for the murder.

If justice was served, dude would die in jail.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:26 PM

LULZ 1:26 watched a YouTube and now he's Sheriff Joe.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:27 PM

1:26 seems to think there was a murder, even though the Czech authorities think it's manslaughter. He must be from Texas.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:30 PM

@1:26 i just watched the video. amazing that randy can toss an adult with one hand. i'm pretty sure the large bouncer behind him had something to do with it.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:31 PM

Manslaughter is accidental murder.

Stupid, useless American.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:32 PM

then charge the bouncer with manslaughter too

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 1:33 PM

i dont think he should die in jail but he is responsible for that guy hitting his head and dieing. he shoultnt be walking free thats for sure.

Sorry, Lulzy. I'm right. There's no such thing as "accidental" when describing a homicide, unless you're (a) ignorant or (b) writing for a tv show.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 2:04 PM

^ Wrong. LOL


Read a book every now and then, lil' guy.

It'll help with that "stupid", I promise.

oy. I can't stand when trolls try to argue points with lawyer trolls. There's no such fucking thing as "accidental murder." Fucking retard.

I'm so glad we have anonymous internet lawyers here on BV threatening other anonymous commenters. (yes, "anonymous internet lawyer" is code for jackass amateur troll).

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 2:34 PM

2:34 - it wasn't a threat. it was a reference to when another idiot was trying to argue a nonsensical legal point he knew nothing about.

Posted by Anonymous | August 3, 2012 2:37 PM

"another idiot"
Besides you, you mean.
You don't have to answer. It was a statement, not a question.

JUST WATCHED THE VIDEO!

RANDY REALLY DID KILL THAT GUY!

HOLY SHIT!

I THOUGHT THAT THERE MUST BE SOMETHING QUESTIONABLE ABOUT THE INCIDENT!

I'M ACTUALLY SHOCKED AT THIS!

HOLY SHIT!
