Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe has released a lengthy statement on his recent arrest in Prague, Czech Republic in connection with the 2010 death of a man at one of the band’s shows there. Blythe spent five weeks in Pankrác Prison in Prague while the case was investigated. From his statement:
While in prison, I had minimal knowledge of how my case was viewed anywhere but the Czech Republic. I was told by my attorney that I had a lot support from peers in the music industry, my hometown, fans, and of course my family … I would like state that I suffered no abuse, from either authorities or inmates, during my incarceration in Pankrác. I received no special treatment, and was in general population with everyone else- make no mistake, it was prison, not some celebrity rehab tv show … If it is deemed necessary for me to do so, I WILL return to Prague to stand trial. While I maintain my innocence 100%, and will do so steadfastly, I will NOT hide in the United States, safe from extradition and possible prosecution.
