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.

Too Short blew a .09, just over the .08 legal limit (his race gets trashed, rappers get trashed...)

.............Two articles down........

The so-called 'Teen Mom' Star Farrah Abraham blew a .147 on a breathalyzer ... nearly twice the legal limit. Her race does not even get mentionned once...Icing on the cake TDR9 added: "These things happen we need more news"............. Gotta love this country

Hi haters!!! .09 is nothing unless you are like 130 pounds. I know it's not the "politically correct" thing to say but gtfoh .08 is the limit he was a whopping .09 lmao. I'm more concerned about the narcotics than the dui. Too Short is a Bay legend I hope everything turns out cool for him.

Too bad he didn't get away. I hate police more than I hate homos. They probably planted the narcotics in the back seat. Where's the resisting arrest charge?

Old school rapper Too $hort was arrested for battery last Thursday (July 15th 2010) after he allegedly tried to beat up three bouncers in a Boise, Idaho nightclub.

The 44-year-old Atlanta transplant (real name: Todd Shaw) was arrested and charged with three counts of misdemeanor battery stemming from an incident at a club called the Knitting Factory.

Police we called to the Knitting Factory sometime after 11 p.m. that night after receiving reports of a fight. Club security said they had been physically assaulted by Too Short and an associate.

If witness reports are accurate, the rapper got pissed when club security forbid him from bringing women under the age of 21 into his dressing room. (It’s club policy.)

No on was seriously injured and Shaw was released after posting bail. He is scheduled to return to court in Boise on August 4th and if convicted, faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

October 22, 2011: It appears that rapper TOO SHORT is in some ISH. He's being sued by a woman who claims that Too Shortgrabbed her breasts during a concert.

The incident took place in March, during a concert in San Francisco, at Yoshi’s Jazz Club.

The 41-year-old woman, Kenya Winston, claims that Too $hort made vulgar comments to her while performing. He then allegedly reached off the stage and grab her breasts during the concert.

Here's how the SF Gate is reporting things

Winston filed a police report against Too $hort four days after the concert, but police declined to press charges. “Ms. Winston is a hardworking mother who just wanted to treat herself to a fun night out,” said Kenya Winston’s Daniel Dean. “What Too Short did was reprehensible and our goal is to hold him accountable.”

C'mon son . . . . why you gotta grab her breasts tho???
