Australian Rock Band AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was arrested this week in New Zealand on four counts of attempting to procure a murder for hire.

AC/DC is known for its hard rock late seventies and early eighties albums Dirty Deeds, Done Dirt Cheap, Highway to Hell, and Back in Black.

UPDATE: It turns out that AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has now been cleared of charges that he solicited a murder. His lawyer reports that the New Zealand resident has had the charges dropped, a day after he was arrested.
