Talk about Highway to Hell. In New Zealand, the drummer with AC/DC is charged with trying to arrange murders.

FOX News Radio's Alastair Wanklyn reports: 

Drummer Phil Rudd accused of trying to have two people killed. Reports say he tried to hire a hit man. A New Zealand court ordering the identities not be reported.

Rudd is a longstanding member of AC/DC, but he did not appear in some promotional material for the band's latest singles, fueling speculation he had left. The 60-year-old Australian is also charged with possessing narcotics after police raided his home in New Zealand.

AC/DC was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame in 2003.
