AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd out on bail after breaching conditions of house arrest.

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was released on bail on Monday after his weekend arrest in New Zealand on a charge of breaching the conditions of his home detention sentence 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 have refused to comment on the nature of the arrest. 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. In another call, Rudd offered the associate “$200,000, a motorbike, one of his cars or a house,” which the associate took to mean as payment for carrying out his earlier request.

The morning after calling his associate, Rudd called the victim directly, saying “I’m going to come over and kill you,” according to the court summary. AC/DC is currently using Welsh drummer Chris Slade for its “Rock or Bust” album tour, but hasn’t said whether that’s a long-term arrangement.
