3. Coheed And Cambria’s Mic Todd Tries To Rob A Pharmacy

When bassist Mic Todd walked into a Walgreens in Attleboro, MA back in July 2011, he wasn’t just picking up a subscription. Armed with a fake bomb, Todd attempted to rob Oxycontin the pharmacy… less than an hour before he was supposed to be onstage with Coheed And Cambria. Police were able to track down the bassist and arrested him outside the venue, officially charged with armed robbery and unlawful possession of prescription narcotics. It didn’t take long for Coheed And Cambria to reveal they were moving on with a new bassist. And last year, Todd pleaded guilty and was sentenced to serve one year of home confinement with GPS monitoring. During that same time, it was also revealed he had been diagnosed with cancer. While Todd’s current condition is unknown, his actions definitely took everyone (including his former bandmates) by surprise.
