Czech court acquits Lamb of God singer

Randy Blythe, frontman of US metal band Lamb of God, has been acquitted by a Czech court of causing the death of a fan at a concert in Prague in 2010.

"I have been found not guilty," the 42-year-old singer revealed on an Instagram, adding "I am a free man".

Mr Blythe was accused of manslaughter after allegedly pushing Daniel Nosek, 19, off the stage. Mr Nosek injured his head when he fell and died weeks later.

The presiding judge ruled his actions had not constituted a crime. In court Mr Blythe said: "He was just a boy, I wish he was still here".
