    AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd in court: procuring a murder + drugs!

    AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd will appear in the Tauranga District Court this afternoon charged with attempting to procure a murder.

    The charge was laid after police raided the drummer's home on the Tauranga waterfront at Matua this morning.
    He is also charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis and threatening to kill.

    He looks like he's heavily into booze as well as drugs. I'm nearly ten years older than him and looked in the mirror. No, don't look as old as he does.

    He's out on bail:
    AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd, 60, has been charged in New Zealand on Thursday (November 6) in a bizarre case in which prosecutors claim that the longtime member of the “Highway To Hell” band allegedly hired a hitman to kill two unidentified men.

    Rudd (born Phillip Witschke), who was busted for marijuana possession in 2010 in New Zealand, is also facing a charge of threatening to kill, as well as charges of possession of methamphetamine and marijuana. Rudd entered no plea to the charges, according to CNN and was let out on bail until November 27 and was ordered to have no contact with the man he allegedly hired.

    Attempting to procure a murder charge against AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd withdrawn

    The Crown solicitor said there was insufficient evidence to justify the charge, Mr Mabey said.

    Mr Mabey said Rudd would defend the threatening to kill charge.

    He described the drugs possession charges as minor.

    The Crown Solicitor's office confirmed the charge had been withdrawn.
