Coheed and Cambria Bassist Arrested For Armed Robbery Before Mansfield, MA Show

Seriously?  TMZ.com is reporting that Coheed and Cambria bassist Michael Todd was arrested before their show tonight at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA (opening for Soundgarden) for armed robbery.  The details:

Michael Todd, the bassist for the band Coheed and Cambria, was arrested for armed robbery after he allegedly held up a Walgreens by claiming he had a bomb … and this all went down right before they played a show! 

According to police in Attleboro, MA … Todd showed a pharmacist a cell phone note that said he had a bomb and demanded Oxycontin. He made off with six bottles of pain pill and fled via taxi. 

But police say he was spotted in the cab and police were able to track it via the dispatcher … to the Comcast Center where Coheed and Cambria were set to open up for Soundgarden.

Police said Todd was arrested without incident after he was identified by the cab driver, the pharmacist and by store surveillance video.

Todd was charged with armed robbery and unlawful possession of prescription narcotics. He is being held on $10,000 bail and will be arraigned on Monday morning.

 Update: 
Coheed and Cambria has posted this statement on their Tumblr page in response:

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.

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.
