Following the arrest of Randy Blythe earlier this week in Prague over manslaughter charges, the Lamb of God frontman has been released on bail.

According to Czech news site [via Blabbermouth], 41-year-old Blythe appeared in court today (June 30) 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.

Blythe was arrested Wednesday (June 27) at the Prague airport and has been charged with manslaughter following an alleged altercation with a concertgoer at a Lamb of God show on May 24, 2010, in Prague. Blythe reportedly got into an altercation with a 19-year-old fan who had come on stage. The fan lapsed into a coma due to his 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.

As previously reported, Lamb of God’s management company released a statement concerning Blythe’s arrest, and promised to update the situation on Monday (July 2). You can read the already released statement here.Enhanced by Zemanta
