Too Short

Too Short was arrested early Wednesday morning (March 20) on suspicion of narcotics possession and driving drunk.

Law officials tell TMZ that Too Short, born Todd Anthony Shaw, was pulled over near Hollywood Boulevard and Las Palmas Avenue in Los Angeles, for a traffic violation. He was taken into custody on suspicion of drunk driving and possessing drugs, according to the L.A. Times.

When officials tried to administer a breathalyzer test after appearing to be under the influence, the 46-year old tried to run before apprehended, according to multiple outlets. Sources tell TMZ that Too Short came in just over the .08 legal limit, blowing .09.

He also allegedly tried to dump drugs in the back of the police car.

This isn't the first time Too Short has got himself into trouble. He was arrested in 2009 for suspicion of DUI and other charges while in Las Vegas. In 2010 he was arrested and charged with three counts of misdemeanor battery after getting into a fight at an Idaho nightclub.

A representative for Too Short was not available at press time.
