AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd arrested again

Postby KiwiPete » Sun Jul 19, 2015 3:13 am

AC/DC rocker Phil Rudd is behind bars again, little more than a week after being convicted and sentenced to eight months' home detention.

The 61-year-old drummer was arrested at his Tauranga home on Saturday night and is being held in custody.
It is understood prostitutes were present at Rudd's home at the time of his arrest.

The nature of the arrest is unclear and it is not known whether Rudd will face any fresh charges when he appears in court again.

Also unclear is whether the arrest could jeopardise an appeal lodged by Rudd's lawyer Craig Tuck against Rudd's sentencing and conviction, or the sentence itself that Rudd received on July 9 after admitting to charges of threatening to kill an employee, and for methamphetamine and cannabis found in his home during a police raid last year.

The last time Rudd was in court, Judge Thomas Ingram warned the rocker that he would go to prison if he breached the terms of his sentence, which confined him to his waterfront home, subjected him to 24-hour monitoring and prohibited him from taking any drugs not prescribed to him.

"I stone cold guarantee that's where you'll end up - I'm not your headmaster, I'm not your father, I'm a judge," Judge Ingram told him at the time.

Judge Ingram also remarked that home detention had been his sole alternative to sending Rudd to jail.

Highway to Hell: Phil Rudd and the law
•2007: Pleaded guilty to common assault after an incident with his former wife aboard his luxury launch Barchetta at Tauranga Marina.

•2011: Pleaded guilty to possession of 25g of cannabis found on Barchetta.

•2014: Acquitted of deliberately lying about his prior drug use to obtain a medical certificate to enable him to renew his private pilot licence. The Court of Appeal last month rejected an appeal by the Civil Aviation Authority.

•November 2014: Charged with attempting to procure the murder of two people following a police raid. The charges were soon withdrawn by police, who also charged him with threatening to kill an employee, and for methamphetamine and cannabis found in his home during a police raid last year.

•April 21: Unexpectedly changed plea of not guilty to guilty. It emerged he told an associate he wanted a former employee "taken out" and offered him $200,000, a motorbike, and the choice of one of his cars or a house.

•July 9: Convicted and sentenced to eight months' home detention and warned by Judge Thomas Ingram he would be sent to jail if he re-offended. His lawyer Criag Tuck lodged an appeal soon after.

•July 18: Arrested at his Tauranga home and taken into custody to appear in court today.

Thinking Phil isn't going to see a cell anytime soon.
