AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was convicted of drug possession yesterday in a New Zealand court. Police found 27 grams of marijuana on his boat in October. Rudd's lawyer had argued that a conviction could interfere with his touring with AC/DC, but the judge said, "It was not just an accident. You were blindly ignoring the law. You have been playing Russian roulette." Rudd was also ordered to pay a $250 fine and court fees.
Rudd, who's on his second tour of duty with AC/DC, is the only Australian-born member of the band.
