Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has been acquitted in the concert death of 19-year-old Daniel Nosek. According to Rolling Stone, a panel of Czech judges announced their ruling on Tuesday and placed the blame primarily on the concert promoters, not Blythe or the band.
Blythe was accused of violently pushing Daniel Nosek from the stage during a 2010 concert in Prague. Nosek suffered a brain hemorrhage from the fall and died after two weeks in a coma. Blythe was detained in a Czechoslovakian prison for five weeks, but returned home in August and announced his intention to stand trial if needed and serve his time if convicted.
Blythe, who faced five years in prison, announced the acquittal on Instagram. “I have been found not guilty and acquitted of all charges against me,” he wrote. “I am a free man.”
