AC/DC's Phil Rudd is being ordered to stay off drugs. The New Zealand Herald says it's a new condition of his bail. It was imposed by a judge Thursday after the rocker was involved in an altercation with a prosecution witness in his pending court case.
The drummer's attorney Craig Tuck admits his client violated the terms of his bail with the incident, but says it was a "chance meeting." Rudd ran into the man at a cafe in Tauranga, New Zealand, where he's currently facing charges of threatening to kill and drug possession.
Cafe owner Leo Rojas says he saw Rudd confront a very large man, and adds that Rudd was the aggressor. He explains that even after Phil was shoved to the ground he didn't back down, and had to be restrained by his bodyguard. When police arrived they took Rudd away in handcuffs.
The rocker's next court appearance is scheduled for February 10th.
