Too Short

Cops AMAZING Plea Deal

In Cut & Run DUI Arrest

EXCLUSIVE

Too Short won't be locked away after trying to run from cops during his crazy DUI arrest ... after cutting the SWEETEST deal of all time, TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Too Short was popped in L.A. back in March on suspicion of DUI -- but during the arrest stupidly fled from cops. He was chased down and taken to jail, where cops say they found Ecstasy in the back of the police cruiser. Short denied it was his.

The rapper was slapped with SEVEN different charges, including: resisting arrest, DUI with .08 BAC or higher and possession of MDMA (Ecstasy).

Tuesday, Short's lawyer Keith Davidson did the impossible ... Short pled no contest to driving with a BAC of .08 or higher and in exchange, all the other charges were DISMISSED. Yeah.

It's not uncommon for first time offenders to get off easy -- but Short's deal is really incredible because he has multiple prior DUI arrests.

As for punishment ... Short was sentenced to 3 years probation, fines and alcohol education classes.

Looks like someone's lawyer is getting a gift basket.

Hmm...I guess black people do get off after all. Celebrity justice. Of course, if it were me, they'd bury me under the jail.

Excellent. Now he's back on the road, where hopefully he will drunkenly crash into the DA's family car and kill them all. Seriously, WTF?
