Coheed And Cambria bassist Michael Todd was arrested earlier tonight after allegedly robbing a Walgreens reports The Hollywood Reporter. The charge is armed robbery as Michael claimed that he had a bomb and was willing to detonate it if he did not get several bottles of Oxycontin. Once he received the pills, he fled and was arrested at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA, where the band was supposed to open up for Soundgarden. But guess what? The band played the show anyways! As they say, the show must go on even when your bassist is arrested for armed robbery. That’s the quote…right? Check after the jump for a message from Coheed And Cambria regarding this situation.
“Michael Todd was arrested today on what we consider very serious charges and therefore he will not be finishing up the current tour. Wes Styles, long time member of the Coheed family will take on bass duties starting tomorrow for the remaining dates. No shows will be canceled.
