ACDC Drummer Appears In Court

Phil Rudd, the drummer of rock band AC/DC, was arrested in New Zealand over the weekend, just days after being sentenced to home detention.

Australian-born Rudd, 61, was arrested at his home on New Zealand’s North Island on Saturday night, the New Zealand Herald reported.

Police did not reveal the reason for his arrest.

On July 9, Rudd was sentenced to home confinement for threatening to kill a man who used to work for him, and for possession of methamphetamine and marijuana.

Following his arrest on Saturday night, Rudd spent the following day behind bars at the local police station.

His lawyer, Craig Tuck, confirmed the incident and said he was due to appear in court on Monday for a bail application.

Tuck also declined to say why his client had been arrested.

At the sentencing for his earlier offense, Judge Thomas Ingram warned Rudd that he would go to prison if he breached the terms of his home detention.

“I stone-cold guarantee that’s where you’ll end up,” Ingram told the drummer.

“I’m not your headmaster, I’m not your father – I’m a judge.”

At present, AC/DC is currently using Welsh drummer Chris Slade for its “Rock or Bust” album tour, and it is unclear if Rudd has any future with the group.
