Legendary Oakland rapper Too $hort has been arrested for driving under the influence in Los Angeles. Also, the Hip-Hop OG may have tried to flee from cops, on foot. 

TMZ reports:

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, they determined 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 running … and tripped on the street.

Police apprehended Too Short and placed him under arrest … and 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.

According to law enforcement sources, Too Short is currently being booked for DUI and felony narcotics possession.

A DUI and trying to dispose of drugs in a police car? We’re thinking plea deal $hot Dog, stat.

Too $hort’s last album, No Trespassing, was released in February 2012. Also, late last year he dropped a collaborative album with E-40 titled History: Function & Mob Music.
