BEIJING -- Feasting on strips of mutton dropped in a simmering pot is a popular dining pastime in China, but what if the meat served is actually made of rat? That may be on the minds of diners after the latest stomach-churning food scandal to hit China. Authorities said that traders bought rat, fox, mink and other uninspected meats -- and after adding red coloring and other chemicals -- sold them as lamb rolls for markets in Shanghai and neighboring Jiangsu province. Police arrested 63 suspects and seized 10 tons of meats and additives, but not before the operation had sold about $1.6 million worth of fake meat over the last four years.

For the last five weeks, Lamb of God's singer Randy Blythe has been detained in Prague, Czech Republic, on manslaughter charges stemming from a 2010 incident where he allegedly threw a charging fan offstage while performing. According to a statement from band representatives, he's now been released on bail, and will return to the U.S. The official charges of "bodily harm of 4th degree and resulting in the death of a fan" could carry a maximum prison term of 10 years. Blythe's detainment meant the band had to cancel a planned tour with the cartoon-metal ensemble Dethklok.

The frontman of the Virginia-based metal band spent five weeks incarcerated in a Czech prison earlier this year , accused of pushing a fan offstage during a performance.
