AC/DC's Phil Rudd arrested again in New Zealand

2015-07-20 13:35

Wellington - AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has been arrested again in New Zealand and was behind bars on Sunday night, his lawyer said.

Details of the charges were unclear and police refused to confirm the 61-year-old had been arrested, less than two weeks after he was sentenced to home detention after pleading guilty to threatening to kill and drugs charges.

However, his lawyer Craig Tuck told journalists Rudd would be appearing in court on Monday.

"All I can say is he has been arrested and will be appearing on Monday at 10am in the Tauranga District Court," Tuck said.

"That's all I can say for now and that's all I am telling everyone who is calling."

When Rudd was recently sentenced to eight months' home detention, the judge warned him that jail would be the next step if his "rock star lifestyle" continued.

Judge Thomas Ingram said Rudd's limited criminal history meant home detention was appropriate for threatening to kill his ex-security chief, but said he would be closely monitored and imprisoned if he breached the terms of the sentence.

"I stone cold guarantee that's where you'll end up," Ingram said, adding: "The temptations of the rock star lifestyle have caused your downfall here."
