Michael Todd, that dope from Coheed and Cambria that held up a pharmacists just before one of their concerts in Rhode Island last year—well, he pleaded guilty to stealing prescription painkillers. Todd was sentenced to one year of home confinement and three years probation. Plus, he’s ordered to continue drug treatment, or should I says rehab, ‘cuz I think he was trying the whole drug treatment thing—that’s why he needed the fix. If you don’t remember, the reports indicated that Todd had used a cell phone to hold up the pharmacy. He handed the clerk the cell phone with a message saying he had a bomb and demanded drugs. Naturally, he was kicked out of the band. Slash just keeps getting more famous by the day!
