Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe is on his way back to America, as his manslaughter trial has been delayed. According to WTVR, Blythe’s defense team asked for a delay because a key witness was sick, and they want the witness to testify in person. One more witness is slated to testify tomorrow, then the trial will be resume on March 4. Blythe indicated to the court that he’ll be back in Prague when the trial resumes.
Blythe has also taken to Instagram to offer somewhat of a commentary on the goings-on surrounding his court case, stating that many things are incorrect about the coverage he’s read.
Keep in mind that translation is difficult, and many things can be lost, for Czech is a VERY DIFFICULT language. So wait and see, as I am. It is all I can do, except be honest & fight for my freedom in my own way. I also have heard of some people (not on here) talking smack about the Czech Republic, saying “Fuck the Czech Republic”, etc. This not how it should be. This is a very sad case, not something to rage at people you do not know over. I am not angry with the Czechs at all. A fan of my band is dead- what do I have to be angry about? I am an INNOCENT man, but I am also a very sad man right now. To not be sad in this instance would be inhuman. But mad at the Czech people? Why would I be mad at them?
It really seems like Blythe is taking everything in stride. He’s absolutely doing everything he should be doing in this case, defending the country where it took place and respecting the judicial system. It’s great that regardless of the outcome, he has a month back in the United States with his friends and family before this draws to a close.
