Coheed and Cambria bassist arrested before Soundgarden gig


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: He was supposed to be opening for Soundgarden as the grunge rockers prepared to perform a reunion concert in Massachusetts. Instead, Coheed and Cambria bassist Mike Todd found himself under arrest for alleged armed robbery in one of the strangest stories of the weekend.

Police in Attleboro, Mass., reportedly took Todd into custody for attempting to rob a Wahlgreens pharmacy on Sunday afternoon, THR reports.

“Upon arrival, it was learned that a male had threatened a pharmacist with a bomb threat and demanded Oxycontin,” police said a statement. “The male was given six bottles of pain pills.”

Todd then got in a cab, which took him to the Comcast Center, where Coheed and Cambria were scheduled to open for Soundgarden. Instead, the 30-year-old musician was arrested and charged with armed robbery and possession of a class B controlled substance.

“Michael Todd was arrested today on what we consider very serious charges and therefore he will not be finishing up the current tour,” a statement posted on the ban’ds Web site read. “Wes Styles, longtime member of the Coheed family, will take on bass duties starting tomorrow for the remaining dates. No shows will be canceled.”
