Former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd sentenced to home detention


As the judge dressed Phil Rudd down, perhaps the most stinging rebuke was that the former AC/DC drummer's playing wasn't anything special.

Rudd was sentenced in the Tauranga District Court on Thursday to eight months home detention on drugs and threatening to kill charges.

Rudd appeared in front of Judge Thomas Ingram for sentencing after pleading guilty to possession of cannabis and methamphetamine and one charge of threatening to kill. He has been on bail the whole time.


Phil Rudd was sentenced to home detention at the Tauranga District Court.

The judge warned Rudd he would go to prison if he breached the terms of his sentence.

"I stone cold guarantee that's where you'll end up. I'm not your headmaster, I'm not your father, I'm a judge."

He said Rudd would be monitored 24 hours a day during his home detention, to be served at his waterfront Tauranga mansion.

"There is simply no place to hide"

Earlier, the court was told Rudd's actions were the result of methamphetamine psychosis and he was addicted to the drug.

Affidavits to the court said Rudd would lose tens of millions of dollars if he was convicted because he couldn't tour to certain countries with AC/DC.

Judge Ingram said there was no evidence he had an offer from the band and he was not convinced that Rudd's drumming was integral to the AC/DC sound.

"Queen replaced Freddie Mercury," he said.

RUDD'S OFFENDING

It was revealed in November last year that Rudd had been arrested and charged with drugs offences and attempting to procure a murder, a charge that was dropped 24 hours later.

In April, when Rudd pleaded guilty to possessing drugs and threatening to kill, the court heard he'd made a call to an associate asking him to "take out" a former security guard turned personal assistant after becoming angry when his solo album launch in August last year flopped.

He fired a number of employees, including his victim.

On September 25 at 8.12pm Rudd phoned an associate in Australia saying he wanted the victim "taken out", and "taken care of because they were a bunch of f***en c****.

Rudd then offered the associate $200,000, one of his cars, a motorbike or a house, which the associate believed was payment for the request.

The next day at 8.27am, Rudd called the victim and asked if he was "on today", the victim said yes at which point Rudd said "I'm going to come over and kill you".

Rudd made two further calls to the same victim, who hung up after realising it was Rudd.

Police then obtained a warrant to search Rudd's Bureta home in Tauranga on November 6.

When police arrived Rudd was in the lounge and attempted to conceal a container of crumbs, which after testing was found to be 6gms of cannabis.

Rudd then pulled out a bag of cannabis from the couch, the court was told.

ESR testing found the bag contained a further 20.2gms of cannabis.

When police arrived at the home Rudd was wearing jeans and no shirt. In his front jeans pocket police discovered a white powder, which turned out to be 0.273gms of methamphetamine.

Police searched the home where they found 0.205g of methamphetamine in the master bedroom, 47.2gms of cannabis in the hallway cupboard, and a further 17.9gms of cannabis in the pool room bedroom.

A total of 0.478gms of methamphetamine and 91gms of cannabis was found.

ADRIFT FROM THE BAND

Previously Rudd has said he's seen the error of his ways and wished he was touring with AC/DC again.

Rudd told an Australian TV station in May his former bandmates, including guitarist Angus Young, weren't talking to him.

"They haven't called me. I wrote them a letter and I tried to get in touch with Angus but I've had no contact from anybody," Rudd told A Current Affair. "I'm very disappointed, but that's life."

Rudd said he was "fit and ready to go" and wished he was touring with AC/DC.

"I've seen the error of my ways and it's onward and upward from here."

Angus Young said last year that Rudd was not himself and needed help.

Last year, Rudd was ordered to pay more than $72,000 after kicking a door in and sacking workers during a tantrum at his restaurant, Phil's Place.

AC/DC are due to play concerts in Wellington and Auckland in December, the last gigs of a world tour.

Well, whatever we think of Phil Rudd's drumming, I don't reckon it's up to a judge to, well, judge.

Rudd's lawyer has appealed the sentence now saying it's too harsh.

Heard the judge on the radio, and he gave Phil Rudd a real telling off. It sounded like a ranting school teacher.

One of Rudd's neighbours also contacted the radio station and reckoned home detention was a pretty harsh sentence for his neighbours. Apparently he has a habit of sitting on his deck half pissed and abuses passers-by.

I suppose he can't help being a cunt, since he's an Aussie too.

The next story. The journo who wrote this is a bit of a smart ass. He worked at the paper where I did a couple of years before me and no one had a good word to say about him.

I'd imagine Rudd has definitely had a reply from the band. "Fuck off you druggy cunt", or words to that effect.

Are tests all that exciting? As a typical ignorant American I can get behind the 20/20 format; but the idea that a 5 day match can result in a draw has 0 appeal to me. I get the significance behind the Ashes, it just doesn't sound like edge of the seat viewing.

You really have to appreciate cricket to like test cricket. It definitely isn't for everyone. Drawn tests used to be the norm, but in the past decade or so, most tests now have a result, partly because of the 20/20 stuff. Batsmen score a lot faster and take more risks, having learned to do that in the 20/20s, which mean they also give the fielding team the opportunity to get them out more often.

It hasn't got the instant appeal of limited overs cricket, but there's a hell of a lot of skill involved in blunting a bowling attack even when it looks like a batsman is just standing there doing nothing.

I suppose it's like the NFL. I love a hail mary pass or a running back busting tackles, but I'm buggered if I could tell ya the difference between a nickel and a dime defense, or the difference between what a linebacker is supposed to do and what a defensive tackle does.

Test cricket is where it's at as far as I'm concerned. It's all about the mind games. The thought processes behind both sides plans of attack. There's a lot more than skill & luck involved. My whole family lives & breathes Test cricket. It takes me days to get over the Aussies losing a Test.

So now he is confined to his mansion for a while eh? Poor diddums. I guess he is upset that he can't go out drinking every night.

He can have home parties instead. ;)

The Poms thoroughly deserved that victory. Outplayed us in all areas. I'm very upset with how the Aussies played. We have some serious work to do before Lords. And yes Watson has to go!

Nope. That is one of the conditions of home detention. You get caught with any booze, you go for a little holiday. The probation service can just pop in any time they like too.
