This is shocking for the rock and roll world.

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has been arrested in New Zealand for possession of drugs, threatening to kill, and attempting to procure murder.

He had been the subject of a police raid earlier that day.

The Guardian had says Rudd, "had been charged with attempting to procure murder, threatening to kill and possession of methamphetamine and cannabis and has been ordered to stay in Tauranga and to have no contact with anyone related to the charge of procuring murder as part of his bail conditions."

Who knows what this will do to the future plans of AC/DC, who lost guitarist Malcom Young earlier this year.

Their new album Rock or Bust will drop in December.
