Flees From Cops

Rapper Too Short has just been arrested for DUI ... after allegedly attempting to run from police, TMZ has learned. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ,  Short -- real name Todd Anthony Shaw -- was pulled over in L.A. a couple hours ago for some traffic violation ... and when cops approached the vehicle, he appeared under the influence.

Now here's where it gets weird -- when police attempted to administer a breathalyzer test, law enforcement sources tell us Too Short took off  ... and tripped as he ran down the street.

Police got their man and placed him under arrest ... then tossed him into a police cruiser.

On the way back to the station, things got even crazier -- we're told Too Short tried to dump narcotics in the back of the cruiser.

Our sources say Too Short blew a .09 ... just over the .08 legal limit.

According to law enforcement sources, Too Short is currently being booked for DUI and felony narcotics possession.

TMZ frequently writes "just over the limit of .08" as if to minimize the crime. That .08 is the line, period. If you're over by a little or a lot, you are going to be charged with a DUI.

Unless, of course, you call advising young boys to SEXUALLY ASSAULT young girls "trouble".


In Feb. of 2012, XXL Magazine Editor-in-Chief Vanessa Satten had to offer a public apology after the mag posted an on-line video of Too Stupid... uhhh, I mean Too Short... giving what he called "fatherly advice" to young boys. He said:


"When you get to late middle school, early high school and you start feeling a certain way about the girls... I'm gonna tell you a couple tricks. A lot of the boys are going to be running around trying to get kisses from the girls... We're going way past that. I'm taking you to the hole."


"You push her up against the wall," he says. "You take your finger and put a little spit on it and you stick your finger in her underwear and you rub it on there and watch what happens."


The magazine was inundated with complaints, the FEMALE Editor took immediate action in removing the offending video (had there been a black male editor, the video would still be up today), and Too Short issued an apology (of sorts). So yet another stellar example of the "positive influence" of rappers. Ah how the good that they do will live on.
