LAMB OF GOD Manager Waiting For Official Letter Detailing New Bail Conditions

LAMB OF GOD manager Larry Mazer told WTVR-TV — the CBS television affiliate based in Richmond, Virginia — that he is still waiting for an official letter informing him that the Czech prosecutor's complaint to block singer Randy Blythe's bail has been dismissed and that Blythe's bail has now been increased. The letter, which must be issued within 48 hours, will state exactly what conditions have been made.

In a closed session, which was originally scheduled for July 19 but took place earlier than planned, a panel of municipal judges reportedly dismissed the Prague State Attorney's Office complaint against Blythe's release on bail. In addition, the court increased Blythe's bail from $200,000 — which has already been paid — to $400,000, which is said to be equivalent to twice Randy's annual income.

Mazer told WTVR-TV that he believe part of the condition is the increased bail. "We are hopeful that tomorrow morning there will be an official letter," said Mazer.

The Prague Monitor previously reported that district court judge Petr Fassati said that even after the latest ruling, a Prague attorney could still be allowed to again comment on bail.

Blythe was arrested in the Czech Republic on June 27 and is facing manslaughter charges in connection with a 2010 Prague concert at which he allegedly shoved a local fan off the stage. The man, who is said to have stormed the stage three times during the show, reportedly suffered a brain hemorrhage that resulted in his death nearly a month later.
