Randy Blythe, the lead singer of the popular rock group Lamb of God, was arrested in the Czech Republic earlier this week on charges connected to the death of a fan at a 2010 concert, WTVR reports.

WTVR cites Czech news reports that say that the lead singer of the Richmond-based band was charged with manslaughter.

The incident happened at a show in Prague in 2010. According to reports, Blythe allegedly either hit or fought a fan who jumped on stage. That fan later died.

A PR representative told WTVR that Blythe is "wrongly accused." They canceled a tour date set for Prague on Thursday night.

Blythe, 41, has been the lead singer of Lamb of God for more than a decade.
