Randy Blythe Defended By Fan In Manslaughter Trial

Written by Marc Zanotti on February 8, 2013

Before Randy Blythe’s trial for the accidental death of Daniel Nosek during a Lamb Of God concert was postponed until early March, the Czech court heard testimony from a fan who defended the Lamb Of God frontman.

As reported by WTVR.com, concertgoer Lukas Havlena contacted Blythe’s defence team himself in order to testify on behalf of the singer. Havlena reportedly informed the court that he thought Blythe was not agressive during the Lamb Of God show in Prague on 24th May, 2010, and that he believed any perceived agressive behaviour from Blythe while onstage was simply part of the performance. Havlena also said Blythe demonstrated that the public were not allowed onstage each time a fan reached the stage.

Blythe’s trial has now been postponed due to one witness suffering from illness and being unable to testify, and two criminal psychologists being unable to appear and give their testimony this week as expected. Once the trial resumes, security personnel and a friend of Havlena are expected to testify.

Recently, Blythe posted an open letter to fans asking for their patience, tolerance and understanding.
