Details of AC/DC Drummer Phil Rudd's Charges Released
Things don't seem to be looking too bright for AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd lately in his case where he is being charged with possession of marijuana and meth as well as making death threats. However, some new light has been brought to the public in terms of the specifics of the case as documents from his case have been revealed.
According to The Canberra Times Rudd allegedly threatened to kill a contractor as well as his daughter on September 26th of this year; the same day that he was accused of discussing "what he wanted to have done" to his almost victims.
Rudd has pleaded not guilty to just about everything but the marijuana possession charge. This would not be the first time he has had a run-in with the law on pot, as he was charged with possession of it in New Zealand back in 2010. Rudd's current trial is scheduled to begin on February 10th of next year.
Rudd does not seem to be helping his case either by showing up late to his hearing, being profane to the paparazzi, nearly getting in a car accident, and then getting into a fight at a coffee shop with one of the witnesses in his case. I hate to say it, but I don't think any testimony from him will be taken 100% seriously when his trial starts next year. I kind of hate to say it, but as much as I admired Rudd growing up I hope he gets what he has coming to him because he is clearly showing that he cannot handle being free and at large.
AC/DC is already going ahead with the promotion and tour for their new album Rock or Bust without him. It's probably safe to say that he is pretty much out of the band even without any kind of official statement from them. I will be reviewing Rock or Bust in the next few days, so be on the look-out for that. It's going to be pretty rad.
