Lamb of God Singer to Remain in Prison for Another 10 Days

Lamb of God Singer to Remain in Prison for Another 10 Days

Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe has been told by a Czech judge that he must remain in jail for at least another 10 days.

Blythe was arrested last week on manslaughter charges stemming from an incident that took place on May 24, 2010 at Prague's Club Abaton, in which a fan was allegedly pushed from the stage, later dying from the resultant injuries.

There are conflicting reports at the moment over whether or not Blythe has paid the 4 million Czech crown ($200,000 U.S.) bail, but it looks like he will remain jailed for the next 10 days regardless.

A local report suggests that Blythe will have to remain in the Czech Republic until he answers the charges against him.

Gwar frontman Oderus Urungus, a fellow Virginia native, has expressed his concern over Randy's fate, and says he is "alarmed by the lack of outrage in the entertainment community," adding, "If this was a pop artist, the media would be all over this."
