Phil Rudd, the drummer for AC/DC, has been arrested in New Zealand as police say he tried to hire a hitman to kill two people.
New Zealand media outlet Stuff first broke the story. They say police raided the 60-year-old musician's home Thursday morning and prosecutors charged him with attempting to procure a murder when he appeared in court later in the day.
The Australian-born drummer also now faces charges for possession of methamphetamine and cannabis, plus a charge for threatening to kill. (Video via BBC)
