Phil Rudd, the drummer for legendary Australian rock band AC/DC, has been charged in New Zealand with attempting to arrange the murders of two people.
The New Zealand Herald reported that the 60-year-old appeared in court Thursday morning in Tauranga, on the country's North Island. The paper reported that he was also charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis, and making threats to kill. Rudd entered no plea in connection with the charges and was released on bail. His next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 27.
Rudd was arrested Thursday morning after police raided his waterfront home. Tauranga Police Detective Sergeant Darryl Brazier told the SunLive news outlet that the search was ordered after a member of the public contacted authorities, but had no further details. Rudd was ordered to have no contact with the man he allegedly hired to carry out the murders. The name of the alleged hitman and the would-be victims were ordered suppressed by the case judge.

Dirty deeds done dirt cheap.
On the highway to hell...
I hope he got the dirty deed cheap
Back in black....stripes.
Man you guys beat me to it. I bet he hears hells bells pretty soon though if he can void getting thunderstruck from the judge first
Methamphetamine, like Heroin, can take your soul away, and leave you just an empty, inhuman carcass. Alcohol will get you - some faster than others - and pot and cocaine and crack will take you out as well... But only these two offer such steep, steep declines that are so hard to reverse. Share the news: it may help save a life.
Crack is right up there too. Right next to heroin.
On the topic of the thread: DAMMIT man. From the top of the world to this.
Tonight there’s gonna be a jailbreak!
This is just waaaay too easy!
It looks like AC/DC will have to start auditioning for a new drummer pretty soon...
Oh no, wrong band/song about jailbreaking!
How ‘bout this:
“Gonna make a jailbreak
And I’m lookin’ towards the sky
I’m gonna make a jailbreak
Oh, how I wish that I could fly”
He must have had BIG BALLS to hire a BIG GUN to carry out his DIRTY DEEDS DONE DIRT CHEAP, but he found out IF YOU WANT BLOOD or you want to SHOOT TO THRILL you will end up THUNDERSTRUCK and on a HIGHWAY TO HELL.
Has not aged well
I actually liked that band 30 years ago.
I’m ashamed of that fact now.....
My brother used to listen to them on his boombox, would drive my mother nuts.
I saw them in 1980 at the Orange Show Pavillion in San Bernardino. They were on the bill with BOC and Molly Hatchet.
“Tonight theres gonna be a jailbreak!”
That would be more appropriate if the person in question were Phil Lynott (RIP).
