Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe was reportedly arrested in Prague today (June 28) on charges of manslaughter stemming from an incident that took place during a performance in 2010.

Metal Sucks says that there are Czechoslovakian reports claiming that the Lamb of God vocalist was picked up by authorities in Prague, prior to his band’s headlining set with Skeletonwitch and All Shall Perish. The arrest was made over a 2010 incident where a fan allegedly jumped on stage and got into a physical altercation with Blythe. The fan later died and Blythe is now reportedly facing manslaughter charges. Looks like Randy will be suspending his presidential campaign after all.

The original report loosely translates to read the following:

We have arrested singer year 1971, which was accused of a crime of bodily harm in the 4th paragraph, thus resulting in death, “said Prague police spokeswoman news Kropáčová Eve with the fact that the police will be more things to say.”

The band’s PR team has previously called the incident in question a misunderstanding, saying he is “wrongfully accused, lawyers are dealing with it, and we expect him to be fully exonerated.” Apparently the Czech police do not agree with that statement.

Lamb of God are set to perform at Knot Fest this August as well as a whole slew of North American tour dates. There is no word on how long Blythe will be detained or whether it will affect upcoming tour dates, we will keep you bring you updates as soon as more details become available.
