AC/DC’s Phil Rudd Curses Out + Threatens a Cameraman and His Own Security Guard
Estranged AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has had a rough time recently, and he's still not shy about taking that frustration out on others. Earlier today (July 20) Phil Rudd flipped out at a cameraman who was waiting for the drummer's arrival at his property. The AC/DC veteran had to be restrained by his security, who Rudd also threatened during the uproar.
Almost two weeks ago, Phil Rudd was sentenced to eight months of home detention for drug possession and "threatening to kill" charges. However, Rudd was arrested once again on July 18 on charges of consuming and possessing alcohol, both of which are in violation of his home detention conditions. Rudd is expected to reappear in court on Aug. 3 and was warned by a judge that any further offenses could result in a change to his home detention sentence.
After being remanded on bail for breaching home detention, Rudd was met by a cameraman upon his arrival home. After being asked how he felt about today, Rudd warned the cameraman he was trespassing before lashing out. "Get out of my f---ing way you [bleep]," Rudd repeated. "Get off my property," Rudd said before turning to his security guard, saying, "Remove him from my property now! Remove him now or I'll f---ing do it myself, you [bleep]." After having trouble getting past his gate, Rudd kicked the door angrily while threatening to "bash" the cameraman himself.
Rudd seemed to begin going after the paparazzo, but the guard held the drummer back, leading to Rudd threatening to "bash" the security guard as well. Before Rudd sped off in his car, he dared the cameraman to follow, which he didn't. Eventually, Rudd made it back and gained entrance into his home, threatening to call the police from his balcony.
