Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has again been ruled not guilty of causing the death of a fan in 2010, after an appeals court in the Czech Republic upheld an earlier ruling.

As previously reported, Blythe was accused of pushing Daniel Nosek off the stage at a gig in Prague in 2010. Nosek sustained head injuries during a fall at the show, which he then died from two weeks later. Blythe was arrested when Lamb Of God arrived in the Czech Republic for another show last year. Although he returned to the US after eventually being released on bail, he returned to face trial in February.

Blythe was acquitted in early March, though the prosecution appealed almost immediately. However, at a hearing on Wednesday, Prague’s High Court upheld the original ruling, meaning Blythe is now clear of further court proceedings. He was not in court himself on this occasion, Lamb Of God currently being on tour in the US.
