Too $hort has dodged a bullet on the legal side after TSA employee noticed a loaded gun in his carry-on luggage at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California.

And by dodge we mean the Oakland rapper got the hell out of it when he bounced from the scene.

Rapper Too Short has been cited at a Southern California airport a day after fleeing a security checkpoint when a screener found a loaded handgun in his carry-on luggage.

Burbank police Sgt. John Pfrommer says the rapper, born Todd Anthony Shaw, was passing through the checkpoint Wednesday when a Transportation Security Administration employee noticed the handgun going through a baggage scanner.

The rapper fled the building, leaving his belongings behind.

Pfrommer says Too Short returned to the airport Thursday with his attorney and was cited on misdemeanor possession of a loaded handgun in a public place.

He was released and is due in court Nov. 3. Police didn’t know who the rapper’s attorney is.

Too Short rose to prominence in the late 1980s out of Oakland. His hits include “Life Is … Too Short” and “Blow the Whistle.”

$hort Dog is currently on probation stemming from a DUI last August. No report as of yet how this new struggle will affect his situation.
