RANDY BLYTHE ISN’T COMING HOME YET AFTER ALL, WILL REMAIN IN CZECH PRISON FOR AT LEAST TEN DAYS
So here we were, all excited that Randy Blythe was supposed to be freed from Czech prison today on $200,000 bail, and as it turns out, he’s not going anywhere.
According to Czech news site Blesk.cz, Blythe will have to remain in jail for at least ten days. Furthermore, according to a statement from Petr Fassati, the judge overseeing the proceedings, Blythe’s release may be conditional upon his remaining in the Czech Republic. In other words, even if he’s out of the clink — which I’m sure would be a welcome relief — he may not be able to come home to the United States without turning himself into an internationally-wanted criminal.
So this situation keeps getting shittier and shittier. Of course, we will continue to keep you updated as more news develops.
