Michael Todd, the bass player for Coheed And Cambria, was recently arrested, which in itself is not that hard to believe for a guy in a hard rock band.
The significant aspects to this story are as follows:
- It was for ARMED ROBBERY.
- He was en route to a huge show THAT NIGHT.
Todd was busted for allegedly holding up a Walgreens with the claim that he had a bomb, according to police reports from Attleboro, Mass.
Todd showed a pharmacist a cell phone note that said he had a bomb and demanded Oxycontin. He made off with six bottles of it via taxi.
Here's where it gets even more absurd. Police say he was spotted in the cab, which they were able to track via dispatcher to the Comcast Center ... where Coheed and Cambria were set to open up for Soundgarden. Awesome.
How will this impact the band's future? Apparently it won't. Todd has been kicked off the tour, with a replacement filling in immediately.
