Coheed and Cambria, Painkillers and Armed Robbery

What do you think when you’re looking at the guy on the right in the picture above? “That guy must be on drugs, I wonder when he’s going to snap and threaten to blow up a store with a fake bomb”? Well, you hit the nail right on the head.

That guy on the right is called Michael Todd and he’s the bassist of Coheed and Cambria, a terrible artsy band that drove the poor guy into an addiction for pain killers. Get it? Because their music is so terrible that poor Mikey’s ears hurt so bad that only drugs could take away the pain.

Of course, I’m fucking with you but only partly. Michael Todd was indeed arrested for armed robbery after he threatened to blow up a store with a fake bomb if they didn’t give him OxyContin, a pain pill. Obviously not just one pain pill but six bottles of pain pills. Why so many? Well, Coheed and Cambria were supposed to open for Soundgarden later on that very day. That’s double the pain.

Todd then fled via taxi but police soon arrested him. Now, who the fuck flees via taxi? That’s pretty much the most stupid way to flee from police, unless you’re Tom Cruise and your taxi driver’s Jamie Foxx.

According to TMZ, he “was charged with armed robbery and unlawful possession of prescription narcotics” and “is being held on $10,000 bail and will be arraigned on Monday morning.” Go to TMZ to read more on that and to see a mug shot of Todd.
