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."

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.
