According the Associated Press, Todd, 30, entered a Walgreen and showed the pharmacist a note on his phone saying he had a bomb. Police said Todd then made off with six bottles of Oxycontin and fled in a cab headed to the Comcast Center in Mansfield, where his band was opening for Soundgarden that night.

Todd was arrested at the concert hall before the show began, but the rest of his bandmates performed without him.

He's scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Attleboro's District Court; according to Coheed and Cambria's website, "no shows will be cancelled" despite their bassist's arrest.

"Michael Todd was arrested today on what we consider very serious charges and therefore he will not be finishing up the current tour," the statement read. "Wes Styles, longtime member of the Coheed family, will take on bass duties starting tomorrow for the remaining dates."
