The drummer of Australian rock band AC/DC, Phil Rudd, has been been bailed after being charged with trying to procure the murder of two people in New Zealand.
The 60-year-old was also charged with threatening to kill and possession of methamphetamine and cannabis.
Rudd was arrested at his Tauranga home this morning and appeared in Tauranga District Court this afternoon.
In court, a judge ordered that the names of his alleged victims and that of the alleged hitman be suppressed.
Under New Zealand law, attempting “to procure any person to murder any other person” is punishable by up to 10 years in jail.
He has been bailed to his home until his next court appearance on November 27.
