Blythe made a final statement to the court before the verdict was reached which read:
"I would like to thank the family of Daniel Nosek for not attacking me in the press and for their kind words to me in this court. I am very sorry for their loss.
Daniel was a fan of my band. I had no wish to harm him. He was just a boy and I wish he was still here.
If, ultimately the Czech legal system sentences me to prison, I will do my sentence like a man.
If I am to remain free, I will do my best to insure that conditions at this concert will not occur again with my band and other bands so that the fans will remain safe.
I have searched for an answer to this situation. The only one I can find is that it was a tragic, horrible accident."
An expert testified that if Nosek was pushed from the stage, there would have been no way that he could have turned his body 180 degrees and landed on his head, and that he must have jumped.
After the acquittal, Blythe wrote on Instagram: "I have been found not guilty & acquitted of all charges against me. I am a free man. 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"
Court spokeswoman Marketa Puci confirmed the ruling but it is believed state prosecutors are appealing the verdict, and have eight days to file.
