Once Bail Is Paid, Randy Blythe May Remain In Jail A Few More Days
Today is the day Lamb of God fans have been waiting for. Fans have been anticipating Randy Blythe to emerge from a Czech jail cell to return home. The problem is, the Czech court and jail system isn't like the U.S. one. In Czech Republic we are told, once bail is paid, you still need a judge to sign off on the release and that can take up to ten days. It generally doesn't take that long, but we have been informed from Czech officials to expect at least another 1-3 days before Blythe will actually be released once bail is paid. The prosecutor is also planning on asking the judge to hold Blythe in the country for up to 10 days.
Judge Petr Fassati of Prague 8 district court stated: "There may well be certain conditions placed upon [Randy Blythe's] release, such as staying in the Czech Republic, or the availability of a specific address. If the conditions are violated, it could lead to an international arrest warrant being issued."
Randy Blythe was detained by Czech police last Wednesday at the airport while in Prague for a concert. Blythe was being questioned regarding his involvement in a fans death possibly resulting from a push from the stage. Blythe appeared in court on Saturday June 30 and was notified he'd be released without being charged upon posting a bond to guarantee his return should it be needed.
