Friends Of Daniel Testify In Day 2 Of Randy Blythe Trial
Randy Blythe was back in court for Day 2 in the trial of manslaughter stemming from a 2010 concert in Prague in which he is accused of pushing a fan to his death. Blythe was joined for support at the court again by drummer Chris Adler, his parents, and wife.
Earlier today, friends of Daniel testified that "He [Randy Blythe] pushed him off the stage. Dan fell on the back of his head. After the concert was over, something wasn't right about Daniel and we called an ambulance once he began vomiting." One witness stated that Randy asked if Daniel was okay and when told yes, continued the concert.
All nine witnesses questioned today had different versions of what transpired and many struggled to remember details of the night. Three of the witnesses who testified agreed that Randy was "extremely aggressive" that night. "One person was kicked, and another strangled on stage" one witness stated. (facts which were proven untrue by thegauntlet.com in July 2012)
When one of the witnesses stated that there were several incidents involving Randy and fans during the first half of the show, Blythe challenged him on the stand citing video evidence proving he wasn't involved in any such incidents.
Three of Daniel Nosek's friends denied that any announcement was made before the concert by Abaton staff telling them not to climb over the barricades, around security, and on the stage. (If it were allowed, wouldn't the club have just made it easier and removed those obstacles?)
