Phil Rudd, the AC/DC star heard his fate in New Zealand’s Tauranga District Court on Thursday July 9, 2015¬†after pleading guilty to possession of cannabis and methamphetamine and one charge of threatening to kill.

Rudd was initially arrested in November 2014 after he made a threatening phone call to a former employee and during a subsequent police raid at his house the drugs were discovered.

 

Judge Thomas Ingram warned the rocker he faced a prison term if he breached his sentence, stating, “I stone cold guarantee that’s where you’ll end up. I’m not your headmaster, I’m not your father, I’m a judge.”

 

Rudd will be monitored 24 hours a day at his luxury Tauranga home.

 

The drama forced the drummer out of AC/DC last year. The group has replaced Rudd with former drummer Chris Slade.
