AC/DC's Phil Rudd Cleared Of Lying By New Zealand Court

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has been cleared by a New Zealand court for failing to reveal a previous marijuana conviction in the medical portion of his application for a New Zealand pilot's license.

According to the Guardian, Rudd "didn't consider the question" when filling out the questionnaire because he feels "the cleanest he had been in his life."

The judge in the case ruled that there's insufficient evidence to convict Rudd of the charges. He will have to pay a fine for failing to keep a logbook, and apparently is clear to resume flying after taking a number of years off to raise his family.

"I was back on the road for three tours, worked harder than a Bering sea fisherman, and I made a lot of money and thought I would buy a helicopter," Rudd told the court. "I've got everything else. Have you seen my garage?"
