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:

  1. It was for ARMED ROBBERY.
  2. 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.

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was arrested early Sunday. We'd blame the NFL lockout for taking away the structure in the man's life, but he's been arrested about 39 times prior to this.

Jones was charged with disorderly conduct after an incident at a Cincinnati bar. At the Scene Ultra Lounge, he became intoxicated and disruptive. He was asked to leave but was "uncooperative and needed to be escorted out."

Jones shouted profanities and then tried to get out of his handcuffs as officers attempted to arrest him. He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

Pacman's most publicized legal woes stemmed from a 2007 strip club melee in Las Vegas that left one employee partially paralyzed and two wounded.

Jones appeared to be turning things around, saying last year: "I'm happy I finally got everything behind me. I'm trying to do whatever I have to do to never come back to nothing that is close to this situation again."

Alas, that pledge didn't last long.

Signed by the Bengals last year, Jones played in five games before suffering a neck injury. For the season, he amassed 13 tackles, one interception, one forced fumble returned for a touchdown, and 200 hours of community service.

Carnie Wilson has no one to blame for her unhappiness.

She likely purchased a home during her musical heyday, watched it tripled in value during the boom years of 1990-2006, and then borrowed against it to support a lifestyle beyond her means. In other words: She got herself into her own mess.

Coming off her random, hilarious appearance in Bridesmaids, this member of iconic 1990s trio Wilson Phillips is facing a serious situation: foreclosure.

As first reported by TMZ, Wilson has defaulted on her California home loan and has until July 21 to fork over the $1.6 million owed on the residence. Otherwise, the house goes up for auction.

Due to what may have been an impulsive purchase by the artist, the home-owning dream is no longer alive. The bank won't release her from the contract, no matter how many song-related puns we come up with.

Carnie and the property will likely go their own ways.

Hines Ward has gone from Dancing with the Stars to perp walking with the police.

The Super Bowl champion and reality show winner was busted for DUI this morning in Dekalb County, Georgia. He posted $1,000 bail and released shortly after the arrest.

Between this bonehead move and the mailed-in proposal of Roy Williams, one thing is certain: the NFL really needs to ends its lockout. The players have no idea what to do with so much time off.

Quite a day for Mike Sorrentino news.

First, The Situation left Jersey Shore for unknown reasons, with no return in sight. Now his managers have just filed a $1 million lawsuit, alleging that they were wrongfully dumped after turning a complete nobody into a megastar.

Gotham NYC Entertainment filed the suit today, claiming Sitch dumped them back in May "due to lack of performance," but legally could not.

Your Shirt is Too Small

According to the lawsuit, he was contractually required to give Gotham 30 days notice and a chance to correct any issues. Gotham claims it got neither.

Therefore, they say, Sorrentino is in breach of contract.

Having managed Situation since the 2009 premiere of Jersey Shore, Gotham claims it not only "discovered" the Staten Island product, but transformed "his career from relative obscurity to become an international celebrity."

Gotham is suing for damages in excess of $1 million.

No comment yet from the reality star's camp, which recently settled a legal dispute - with his own dad. It's also unclear why he bolted the Shore house or whether he'll return. We'll have to stay tuned on both fronts ...

John Legend has been called many things over his career: talented, hard-working, successful.

But this is a new one: A New Jersey songwriter named Anthony Stokes claims the musician is a hack.

According to court documents filed this week, Stokes says he gave Legend a demo tape in 2004 at the University of North Carolina. He never heard back from the famous singer... but then heard Legend's "Maxine's Interlude" and and believes it was based on Stokes' track, "Where Are You Now?"

Stokes is demanding damages from Legend and attempting to block sales of "Maxine's Interlude."

We've posted Legend's single above and you can listen to Stokes croon his song HERE. Think Stokes has a case?

This is one way to be taken seriously as an adult actor.

Ryan Rottman, star of Nickelodeon's Gigantic, was arrested in Hollywood last night after he jumped a curb in his car, was pulled over by police and subsequently arrested for on suspicious of DUI.

Rottman reeked of alcohol and reportedly blew a .19 on his field sobriety test, over twice the legal limit. The actor was booked and released a few hours later.

Next time you wanna break free from your young reputation, Ryan, just follow the leads of Vanessa Hudgens and Blake Lively: pose naked.

Kari Ann Peniche is back in the news for all the wrong reasons. All the wrong reasons except one, that is.

The Celebrity Rehab star is pregnant... but the identity of the father is unknown and husband Justin Williams has filed for divorce due to this uncertanity.

TMZ has obtained court documents submitted by Williams that ask a judge to order genetic testing to determine if "this is a child of the marriage." The couple got married in February.

Kari Ann made headlines in August 2009 for appearing in a weird naked video with Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart. Her confusing, troubled past also includes domestic abuse at age 20, being crowned Miss Teen USA, posing in Playboy, being engaged to Aaron Carter and entering rehab for cocaine abuse.

In other words: the latest scandal, sadly, fits perfectly into Peniche's poor decision-making pattern.

It's the end of an error.

The UK's News of the World, one of the planet's least reliable but most entertaining celebrity gossip publications, will cease to exist July 10.

The news of the News shutdown comes on the heels of a huge wiretapping scandal reportedly involving high-profile victims across the UK.

Prince William, Prince Harry, Kate Middleton, Heather Mills, Hugh Grant, Jude Law and Sienna Miller were just a few of those reportedly hacked.

James Murdoch, chairman of publisher News International, broke the news to his staff Thursday. He addressed the wiretap case as well:

"I have important things to say about the News of the World and the steps we are taking to address the serious problems that occurred."

"The good things the News of the World does have been sullied by behavior that was wrong," he added, without listing any good things.
