According to BostonHerald.com, COHEED AND CAMBRIA bassist Michael Todd was released from jail earlier today (Monday, July 25) after posting $25,000 bail.
Todd was arrested for armed robbery on July 10 shortly before the band’s performance at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts as the support act for SOUNDGARDEN. Todd allegedly walked into a Walgreens in Attleboro, Massachusetts and threatened to blow up the store with what was apparently a fake bomb unless he was given OxyContin. Todd made off with six bottles of the pain pill before police tracked the cab he escaped in. He was arrested outside Comcast Center and officially charged with armed robbery and unlawful possession of prescription narcotics.
Todd, 30, was freed at midnight from the Dartmouth House of Corrections, Bernie Sullivan, spokesman for Bristol Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, told BostonHerald.com.
It was unknown this morning who posted bail for the bassist.
Todd previously left COHEED AND CAMBRIA in 2006 in order to seek treatment for heroin addiction. After a stint in rehab, he returned to the group in 2007.
