AC/DC DRUMMER PHIL RUDD LED AWAY IN HANDCUFFS AFTER INCIDENT
AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was taken to a police station in Tauranga, New Zealand in handcuffs after an incident on Thursday morning (December 4th).
According to SunLive, witnesses at a local coffee shop saw Rudd get into a dispute with “a huge guy” who was apparently the drummer’s former security guard. The man reportedly told Rudd, “I don’t work for you anymore,” and pushed the drummer in the chest, forcing him to fall backwards. Witnesses stated that Rudd then “went nuts.”
Rudd was taken into court, where his lawyer acknowledged that Rudd breached his bail agreement by having contact with a potential witness in his upcoming trial.
The judge set a new bail, adding a new condition in which Rudd is not allowed to consume illegal drugs.
Rudd’s lawyer said of the Thursday morning incident, “It was a meeting with somebody he wasn’t meant to associate with in a shop. It was a chance meeting and then there was contact from that.”
