AC/DC rocker Phil Rudd has been arrested, little more than a week after being convicted and sentenced to eight months' home detention.

The 61-year-old drummer was reportedly arrested at his Tauranga home last night and is being held in custody.

It is understood prostitutes were present at Rudd's home at the time of his arrest.

The nature of the arrest is unclear and it is not known whether Rudd will face any fresh charges when he appears in court again.

Rudd will appear in Tauranga District Court Monday morning.
