randy blythe

Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe, who was arrested last week in Prague over manslaughter charges, has been released on bail.

You can see slow motion footage of the actual incident below and this clearly shows that security did the pushing and not Randy Blythe.

41-year-old Blythe appeared in court on Saturday morning and was released on 4 million Czech koruna bail (about $200,000 Canadian). Blythe reportedly did not speak during the hearing and was considered a 'flight risk' by the judge, who ruled he must remain in the country for at least the next two days. You can watch a video of the court appearance below.

Blythe has been charged with manslaughter following an alleged altercation with a concertgoer at a Lamb Of God show on May 24th 2010 in Prague. The 19-year-old fan had trespassed onto the stage and later lapsed into a coma due to injuries sustained at the show and died 14 days later due to bleeding in the brain.

If found guilty of the charges, Blythe could spend up to ten years in prison, according to Czech news reports.

Blythe appeared in the courtroom in Prague early Saturday morning with his two lawyers. He was led in wearing the same camouflage pants and Obituary sweatshirt he wore when detained at the airport. Blythe wore no laces in his shoes for 'safety reasons'.s

Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton wrote on Twitter: "Finally HOME! 4/5 of us anyway. I can't wait to give Randy a big bear hug and kiss his pointy, stubbly face! Thanx for all the support y'all! Flooded with questions about Randy. I truly understand and appreciate [your] concern. But it would be irresponsible for me to comment on any of it. Again... thank y'all SOOOO much for your love and support during these difficult times. It means the world to us."
