AC/DC Drummer Phil Rudd Behaves Poorly at First Court Appearance
Think of what you consider a pretty exciting day that you might have. Well whatever it may be, it is NOTHING compared to AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd's day on November 25th. Things began with an arrest warrant and drew to a close with a near car accident. Your day definitely pales by comparison, doesn't it?
According to The Guardian Rudd was supposed to appear in court at 9 AM that day for charges of drug possession and threatening to kill a man. However, he missed that appointment. When that happened, the judge issued a warrant for his arrest. Luckily for Rudd, he managed to slide right into the doors of the court house half an hour before the warrant could take effect.
It doesn't end there, though.
During Rudd's hearing, he offered no plea toward any of the charges raised against him. From there, he was informed that the case would then be taken to district court. When this decree was issued, Rudd decided to jump a security guard's back, after which he then gave the bird to photographers while leaving the building. After that, Rudd took things a step further by just barely avoiding hitting a truck while reversing his car onto its path while out on the road.
Now I'm as much a fan of rock n' roll antics as the next guy, but I think Rudd needs to dial things down several notches if he is going to get through this court case. However, I get the impression that he intends to do no such thing. Rudd seems to have gotten to a point where he gives absolutely ZERO f***s about laws, propriety, and what people think of him. Admirable to a certain extent, but his recklessness may possibly cost him his life.
