Randy Blythe Trial, Day 3 – Concertgoer Defends Randy Blythe

Posted by on February 6, 2013

As Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe’s trial continues into its third day, a concertgoer that stagedove at the same Prague concert that Daniel Nosek did testified that Blythe wasn’t acting aggressively that day. Czech site Novinky.cz says that Milan Poranek, who had been seen in photos being restrained by Blythe onstage, stated that he wasn’t being choked by him, as it appeared, and that the Blythe was justified in doing so. Poranek admits he was drunk and had jumped onstage twice. “Because of the way I acted, he was right,” Poranek said. “I wanted to stagedive, and he pulled me to the ground and held me there because of the way I acted.” Poranek almost went up for a third time, but decided not to.

Yesterday, several witnesses that claimed Blythe was acting aggressively at the show, which he denied.  But today, a female concertgoer testified that she didn’t see the vocalist do anything out of the ordinary, stating that metal bands are always trying to look angry onstage, but she didn’t take any of Blythe’s actions seriously. And a worker at Abaton, the club where the 2010 incident took place, testified that while an ambulance had been called, nobody knew why or for who, and they only learned about the incident after the fact from the police.
