According to a report published by Blesk.cz, Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe must remain at the Pankrac Prison in Prague, Czech Republic for at least ten days. As you already know, Blythe was arrested nearly a week ago on charges of manslaughter. Although Blythe has posted bail, he has been deemed to be a flight risk by a district court in Prage. Judge Petr Fassati had the following to say: "There may well be certain conditions placed upon [Blythe's] release, such as staying in the Czech Republic, or the availability of a specific address. If the conditions are violated, it could lead to an international arrest warrant being issued."

In the meantime, the remainder of Lamb of God has returned home to Virginia, with Mark Morton guitarist issuing the following via Twitter:

"Finally HOME! 4/5 of us anyway. I can't wait to give Randy a big bear hug and kiss his pointy, stubbly face! Thanx for all the support y'all! Flooded with questions about Randy. I truly understand and appreciate [your] concern. But it would be irresponsible for me to comment on any of it. Again….thank y'all SOOOO much for your love and support during these difficult times. It means the world to us."
