Troubled AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was detained by police after scuffling with a witness in his pending court case before being released without facing further charges.

His lawyer Paul Mabey said Rudd, 60, appeared in court in Wellington accused of breaching his bail conditions by associating with a witness. Mr Mabey said it was a “chance meeting” and Rudd was freed again on bail.

Last month police charged Rudd with threatening to kill, which carries a maximum prison sentence of seven years, as well as possessing methamphetamine and marijuana. He has pleaded not guilty.

Columbus Coffee cafe owner Leo Rojas said he saw Rudd swear and try to punch a larger man on the pavement outside.
