Mic Todd, the longtime bassist of Coheed and Cambria, has been arrested for armed robbery after allegedly holding up a Walgreens in Attleboro, MA earlier today, reports TMZ.com.

According to police (via TMZ), Todd told a store employee that he had a bomb and demanded bottles of Oxycontin. He was later arrested in a cab that was on its way to the Comcast Center, where Coheed and Cambria are set to perform with Soundgarden tonight.

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.

Coheed and Cambria confirmed the news in a statement on their Tumblr, and added that no tour dates will be canceled. Instead, Wes Styles will be replacing Todd for the remainder of their scheduled tour dates. “We are surprised to say the least and will address the situation with Michael after the tour.”
