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.

Rappers never learn. I think as soon as someone says "I want to be a rap star" they should be arrested and put in jail until they change their mind.

When you have the kind of money Too Short has, a DUI is a cry for help. Call a f**king cab or town car. Geez!

This remindeds me of an episode of PUNKED. Tony Parker was pulled over by police and fled on foot - Eva (Punked victim) was completely shocked, lol.

Why wasn't he charged with resisting arrest, too? Why didn't police search him before putting him in the police car? That doesn't sound right ...
