On Thursday, AC/DC’s drummer, Phil Rudd, was charged with allegedly trying to have two men killed, along with charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis, and threatening to kill.
However, as of Friday, Rudd is off the hook for one of those charges. According to People, the Crown Solicitor of Tauranga, New Zealand, where Rudd was arrested, withdrew the murder-for-hire charge due to “insufficient evidence.”
Rudd’s lawyer Paul Mabey QC issued a statement, saying: “The charge for alleging an attempt to procure murder should have never been laid. The charge is now withdrawn.
