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.

Come on Short Dog.

I'm disappointed. That's too low end homeboy. Stopping making enemies and don't be so disrespectful to women without cause.

He's good don't be to hard on him, if he cooperates.

When you're dealing with LAPD, take a cab or public transit. Just don't pull a Leif Garrett.
