• AC/DC drummer escapes jail over drugs, kill threat


    TAURANGA, New Zealand: AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd on Thursday avoided prison for drug possession and threatening to kill an employee, but a New Zealand judge warned him failure to kick a narcotics habit would result in jail time. Rudd, 61, was sentenced in Tauranga District Court to eight months home detention after pleading guilty to the charges in April. The drummer had faced a maximum seven years inside for threatening to kill a former employee, with prosecutors arguing for an 18-month term and the defense pleading for discharge without conviction.
