Phil Rudd Arrested For Violation Of House Arrest

TAURANGA, New Zealand (CelebrityAccess) — Just weeks after his sentencing on drug and threatening to kill charges, former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was arrested on a charge of breaching the conditions of his home detention sentence

According to The Guardian, Rudd's lawyer, Craig Tuck, said his client appeared in the Tauranga District Court on July 21st for allegedly possessing and consuming alcohol, a violation of his detention conditions. The New Zealand Herald also reported that prostitutes were present in Rudd's home at the time of his arrest.

Rudd was released on bail following the hearing but may face jail time after enting a plea at a court appearance on August 3rd, Tuck told The Guardian.

Rudd had been sentenced to 8 months of home arrest after offering cash, vehicles and a house to an associate in exchange for 'taking out' a former employee of Rudd's. During his sentencing, Judge Thomas Ingram warned Rudd about violating the conditions of his detention:
