Charges Against AC/DC Drummer Dropped



Looks like AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd is in the clear. The Australian band’s legendary skins-man was charged with trying to hire a hitman to kill to people in New Zealand.

However, the charges have now been dropped since there is not enough evidence to take the case to court, according to a New Zealand court.

However, Rudd might have escaped the more serious charges, but he is still going to be tried for threatening to kill a man back in September and for the possession of cannabis and methamphetamine.

According to the judge assigned to the case, after reviewing the police file it was clear that there exists an insufficient amount of evidence to support these charges.

Rudd was AC/DC‘s first drummer but was kicked out of the band in the 1980s. However, he did rejoin the group later and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with them.
