Oopsies! According to The Guardian, AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd is headed to prison for plotting to kill someone! Yikes!:
He had been charged with attempting to procure murder, threatening to kill and possession of methamphetamine and cannabis and has been ordered to stay in Tauranga and to have no contact with anyone related to the charge of procuring murder as part of his bail conditions.
According to court documents, Rudd is accused of attempting to hire one person to kill two others between 25 September and 26 September. He is also accused of threatening to kill a complainant on 26 September.
Rudd refused to talk to media gathered at the court and left in a late model Mercedes sedan, the New Zealand Herald reported.
Rudd was a notable absentee from AC/DC’s recent promotional material in the lead-up to the release of the band’s first album in six years.
The first image released to promote the album, Rock or Bust, did not feature Rudd and he was absent from two video shoots over the past few months.
