Murder Procurement Charge Against AC/DC Drummer Phil Rudd Dropped


AC/DC The charge of attempting to procure murder against AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has been dropped a day after he appeared in a New Zealand court.

Rudd's Counsel, Paul Mabey, released a statement saying Rudd’s most serious charge had been withdrawn. It was not clear whether the other charges of threatening to kill and possession of drugs remained.

"I was advised by the Crown Solicitor, [Greg] Hollister-Jones, that he had reviewed the police file and the available evidence to support the charge of attempting to procure murder," Mabey's statement said.

"He had formed the view that there was insufficient evidence to justify that charge. He has now withdrawn the charge."
