PRAGUE (March 5, 2013)--A court in Prague has acquitted the front man of a U.S. heavy metal band of charges stemming from a teenage fan's death at a concert in the Czech Republic.
Lamb of God's Randy Blythe was charged in December in Prague with causing bodily harm to another person with lethal consequences, accused of pushing the 19-year-old man from the stage during a 2010 concert at Prague's Abaton club.
The man later died of a head injury.
Blythe pleaded not guilty.
The court spokeswoman, Marketa Puci, confirmed Tuesday's ruling by Prague's Municipal Court.
The state prosecutors, who had demanded a five-year prison term for Blythe, have appealed the verdict.
