Here's a verdict that is no doubt music to Randy Blythe's ears.

The Lamb of God singer was acquitted on Tuesday in the death of a fan at 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."

Randy Blythe arrested in manslaughter probe

Blythe had been indicted last December for manslaughter in Prague, where he was accused of pushing 19-year-old Nosek off a stage two years earlier, causing the victim head injuries that he later died from.

The singer, who pleaded not guilty, faced a possible five-year sentence had he been convicted.

The prosecution will reportedly appeal the verdict.
