NZ Court Convicts AC/DC Drummer

A New Zealand court convicted AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd Tuesday (11/30) on charges of having marijuana onboard his boat.  The Oct. 7 incident involving Rudd took place at a marina in the North Island's Tauranga District and involved just 25 grams of cannabis.  The penalty was equally paltry - just $132 in court costs and a fine of $250. Rudd's attorney fought for the case to be dismissed out of concern that a conviction could hinder his client's ability to enter certain countries on future AC/DC tours.  The justice wasn't impressed, reportedly telling Rudd, 'It was not just an accident - you were blindly ignoring the law. You have been playing Russian routlette.'
