Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe was acquitted Tuesday in the Czech Republic on manslaughter charges, stemming from an incident involving Blythe allegedly pushing a fan from the stage during a 2010 concert in Prague.

"I have been found not guilty & acquitted of all charges against me. I am a free man," Blythe wrote on Instagram upon leaving a Czech Republic courtroom. "Please remember the family of Daniel Nosek in your thoughts & prayers in this difficult time. I only wish for them peace. Thank you for your support."

Blythe was indicted in December for manslaughter in Prague, where he was accused of shoving 19-year-old Nosek off a stage two years earlier, causing his head injuries from which he later died.

The singer, who pleaded not guilty, faced a possible five-year sentence had he been convicted. The prosecution will reportedly appeal the verdict.
