Ex-Coheed Star Guilty For Bomb-Scare Drug Robbery (Top 12 of June 2012)

(Classic Rock) Ex-Coheed Star Guilty For Bomb-Scare Drug Robbery was a top 12 rock story of June 2012: Former Coheed And Cambria bassist Michael Todd has been sentenced to a year's home confinement plus three years' probation after pleaded guilty to charges stemming from staging a bomb-scare drugs heist while on tour with the band.

Last August he was dismissed by the prog metal band following an incident in Massachusetts the previous month. He'd gone into a drugstore and shown staff a message on his phone which said he had a bomb. He threatened to detonate it if they didn't do as they were told, and soon left the premises with six bottles of prescription drugs.

Police followed his taxi to the Comcast Center in Mansfield, where Coheed And Cambria were about to play in support of Soundgarden. He was arrested moments before the band were to hit the stage. They played without him and later announced they'd sacked him.

Todd, 31, will serve twelve months of home confinement with GPS monitoring. Judge Renee Dupuis added three years of probation to the sentence and ordered him to stay away from the drugstore he'd robbed.
