Coheed And Cambria bassist arrested on robbery charges

Coheed And Cambria bassist Michael Todd was arrested on 10th July on robbery charges after he held up a drug store claiming he had a bomb and demanding bottles of the painkiller Oxycontin. Todd did this just before Coheed And Cambria were due to open for Soundgarden on tour and was arrested in a taxi on his way back to the arena.

Todd is now being held with bail set at $25,000, increased from $10,000 after he did not enter a plea and will have to return to court on 9th August.

The band released a statement regarding his arrest:

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.
