AC/DC Drummer Pleads Guilty To Threatening To Kill Assistant After His Solo Album Tanked, And Also To Possessing Meth

Former AC/DC drummer Phill Rudd pleaded guilty in a New Zealand court yesterday to one charge of threatening to kill, and charges of cannabis and methamphetamine possession. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Rudd admitted to asking someone to “take out a former security guard-turned-personal-assistant” after the launch of his 2014 debut solo album “didn’t go well.” The associate was given $200,000, a car, and a motorbike or a house in exchange. Rudd called the victim back in September and threatened, “I’m going to come over and kill you,” which prompted the police to investigate and arrest Rudd. Rudd’s lawyer says that he would seek “a discharge without conviction.” Rudd was released on bail until his sentencing on 6/26.
