According to Mediafax.cz
, LAMB OF GOD
frontman Randy Blythe
remains behind bars in a Czech prison after the Prague State Attorney's Office filed a complaint against the singer's release on bail.
On Monday (July 9), the attorney's office spokeswoman Štepánka Zenklová
confirmed that the complaint was delivered to the Prague 8 district court this past Friday (July 6).Zenklová
told the Prague Daily Monitor
that she could not specify the justification of the complaint. The Prague City Court will deal with it now.
The complaint was filed with a Prague district court that was in charge of the case. It is to pass the decision-making on the bail to the City Court.
The City Court can either meet the complaint and annul the bail or it can approve the release on bail, and then the Prague attorney would comment on it again, district court judge Petr Fassati
, 41, is accused of causing the fatal injury that occurred at LAMB OF GOD
's May 24, 2010 show in Prague. The singer allegedly either pushed or struck a 19-year-old fan named Daniel N.
— a guitarist in a local metal group — and that person died almost a month later of bleeding in the brain. Randy
has been charged with causing "bodily harm of the fourth degree, resulting in the death of a fan" and faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted. Blythe
remains in detention at Pankrác Prison in Prague even after the band's manager posted 4 million Czech Koruna bail (approximately $200,000) on July 3. But the bail system in the Czech Republic is not as rapid as in the U.S.
Although bail has been posted, the decision to release the singer is still subject to appeal and so it will take some time for the state prosecutor's office to give approval.LAMB OF GOD
manager Larry Mazer
spoke with Rolling Stone
last week about the alleged incident, telling the magazine, "There are YouTube
videos which 100 percent show Randy
's innocence. As a matter of fact, all of those videos have now been sent to our lawyer, and he's presenting it to the judge. This case is so full of holes. Nobody reported an injury of any kind at the concert, or after the concert. It was at least an hour to two hours later, supposedly, when this kid went to a hospital." Mazer
continued, "So that's number one — why did nothing occur during the show? Number two, he had supposedly been in a coma for 30 days, but it wasn't [until] a couple of months later that they contacted the promoter to ask his understanding of the events. He said the same thing — that the show went on fine, no nothing, no incidents. They told him that a person had been injured, which led to a death, which he had no knowledge of whatsoever. And then it went away. Two years go by, and Randy
