Somebody call Dr. Drew… and a lawer — STAT! Coheed and Cambria Bassist Michael Todd was arrested for armed robbery after he allegedly held up a Walgreens pharmacy for d-rugs by claiming he had a bomb right before the group was set to open up for Soundgarden at a Massachusetts venue.
According to TMZ reports:
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.
Damn… Sounds like he needed a quick fix before the show. But armed robbery? SMH.
Something tells us the judge probably won’t throw the book at this guy so perhaps he should take this as a wake up call and get his damn life together!
