Randy Blythe’s Trial To Be Delayed Until Early March

Written by Mike Hohnen on February 7, 2013

Blythegate has been extended for at least a few more weeks after the Lamb Of God singer’s manslaughter trial was delayed pending the recovery of a witness who is currently too unwell to appear in court.

There will be one more day of court this Friday, 8th February where another witness will give evidence but, following that, the case will be adjourned until Monday, 4th March. It’s understood (via Loudwire) that Blythe will return to the USA during the break.

Yesterday the court heard from Milan Poranek, who was at the 2010 concert in question and was restrained by Blythe after jumping on stage. Poranek disputed claims from the proseuction that Blythe choked him as he attempted to stage dive. “I wanted to stagedive and Blythe pulled me to the ground and held me there as I was very drunk,” Poranek recalled in his testimony. β€œHe did it because of the way I acted and he was right.”

While the trial is concerned with Daniel Nosek, the 19-year-old punter who Blythe is accused of fatally injuring as he was ejected from the stage during the 2010 Lamb Of God concert, Poranek’s experiences lend a lot of credibility to Blythe’s case, as it demonstrates Blythe’s behaviour and mindset on the night in question.

Blythe took to Instagram yesterday, to remind people to cool their jets and wait for proper translations of the proceedings or, better yet, wait for the final judgment of the court before passing their own.
