Armed Robbery Arrest : Michael Todd, bass player for Coheed and Cambria, was arrested at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA, moments before he was due on stage with the band to open for Soundgarden, and charged with robbing a Walgreens to obtain OxyContin.
According to a police report, Todd claimed he had a bomb and demanded six bottles of the prescription painkiller. He then left the store and took a cab to the concert.
The band posted a message to fans on their Tumblr shortly after the arrest, saying they were replacing Todd with Wes Styles and that no show should would be canceled.
“We are surprised to say the least and will address the situation with Michael after the tour. For now, we just want to have a great time out here and finish with some killer shows in Boston, Poughkeepsie, Quebec City and Halifax.”
