AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd will appear in the Tauranga District Court this afternoon (New Zealand time)charged with attempting to procure a murder.
According to stuff.co.nz Rudd was charged after police raided his home on the Tauranga waterfront at Matua this morning.
He has also been charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis and threatening to kill.
Police said a 60-year-old man was expected to appear in court today.
Rudd was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the other members of AC/DC in 2003.
Last month, AC/DC fueled rumors of a falling out with Rudd after sharing a promotional photograph of their new line-up — minus the drummer.
