Co&Ca bassist arrested for armed robbery

Posted by AP on 11/07/11

Coheed And Cambria bassist Michael Todd has been arrested for allegedly robbing an Attleboro, MA area Walgreens for six bottles of Oxytocin. Todd then apparently took a cab to the Comcast Center, where the band was scheduled to open for Soundgarden. Police are said to have tracked him down at the venue via cab dispatch, where they proceeded to arrest him. He has since been charged with armed robbery and unlawful possession of prescription narcotics. The band has released the following statement:

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.
