AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd arrested again in New Zealand.

AC/DC’s Phil Rudd has been arrested again in New Zealand, just over a week after being sentenced to eight months of home detention for threatening to kill a former employee. The 61-year-old Australian-born drummer was arrested at his home on New Zealand’s North Island on Saturday night, though police refused to comment on the nature of the arrest, the New Zealand Herald reported. Rudd’s lawyer, Craig Tuck, confirmed in an email Sunday that Rudd had been arrested and that he was due to appear in court on Monday for a bail application. At the sentencing hearing, Judge Thomas Ingram warned Rudd that he would go to prison if he breached the terms of his home detention, which includes 24-hour monitoring and prohibits him from taking any nonprescription drugs. “I stone-cold guarantee that’s where you’ll end up,” Ingram told the drummer, according to the AP. “I’m not your headmaster, I’m not your father — I’m a judge.” AC/DC released its most recent album, Rock or Bust, on Dec. 2.

In that case, Rudd acknowledged in a court summary of facts that he’d offered cash, vehicles and a house to an associate after asking him to have the victim “taken out.” He also acknowledged that he’d directly said to the victim he was going to kill him.
