Too Short

Skates on FELONY

Drug Possession Charges

3/24/2013 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0322-too-short-tmzToo Short will NOT be prosecuted for felony drug possession ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We broke the story ... Too Short was arrested Wednesday for DUI. He made a failed attempt to escape (see video below) and was taken to jail, where cops say they found drugs in the back of the black and white.  He was booked for felony drug possession.

We've learned ... the L.A. County District Attorney has REJECTED the felony drug case, because cops only found a very small amount of drugs -- which they say is meth. Given that Short does not have a felony record, the D.A. decided not to prosecute and sent the case over to the L.A. City Attorney for misdemeanor review.

We're told the City Attorney will look at the case ... probably next week.

FYI ... Short insists he was not in possession of drugs, and whatever was found in the back of the cop car was left by the prior arrestee who involuntarily hitched a ride to the pokey.

I feel sorry for his wife...on Couples Therapy she was waiting fearfully for his demise at hospital besides. She couldn't go through it any longer, but he thought she was almost betraying him. Heartbreaking. Find someone who really loves you and addiction wins over everything. I hope he gets help. He can die if he drinks again. Kinda wished they would mandate rehab...

I will say it again, if you are connected in Hollywood.. do whatever you want to do. You could kill someone aka. Phil spector and get away with it. Los Angeles courts only for the rich

Why did he try to escape if the drugs aren't his?? And if a normal tried to escape they would have been beat by the cops and would have a list of charges. Amazing los Angeles justice.

OooooNooo!    

A rapper with drugs? IMPOSSIBLE! Must be a set-up. I'm sure he was running away not because he had drugs, he was just running away just a kind-a funny joke. Maybe he should join the NBA?
