AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd allegedly threatened to kill one of his employees and their daughter and then telephoned someone to discuss methods on how to go about it, according to court papers released today.
Documents published by the New Zealand legal system has disclosed some of the reasons for his arrest last month, following his appearance in court yesterday for breaking the terms of his bail in a police incident.
While the alleged victims in the case cannot be named for legal reasons, Crown prosecutor Greg Hollister Jones released some information in a summary of facts via Tauranga District Court in New Zealand today.
Rudd, 60, pleaded not guilty to charges of threatening to kill and also possession of amphetamine. He has pleaded guilty to a charge of possessing marijuana. The drugs are said to have been found when police raided his home on November 6th – the day of his arrest.
The Canberra Time reports that Hollister Jones described yesterday’s incident as serious since it involved interfering with a witness to the case. Rudd has acknowledged the breach of bail conditions and he’ll return to court on February 10th.
