Mike Todd was apprehended without incident after he was identified by the cab driver. He is being held on $10,000 bail.

Coheed and Cambria released this statment about the incident on their offical tumbler.

“Michael Todd was arrested today on what we consider very serious charges and therefore he will not be finishing up the current tour. Wes Styles, long time member of the Coheed family will take on bass duties starting tomorrow for the remaining dates. No shows will be canceled.

We are surprised to say the least and will address the situation with Michael after the tour. For now, we just want to have a great time out here and finish with some killer shows in Boston, Poughkeepsie, Quebec City and Halifax.”

Oxycotin…. Its Whats For Breakfast.
