Too Short has been arrested in Idaho for battery.

The 44-year-old rapper, real name Todd Shaw, was taken into custody after authorities say a fight broke out at The Knitting Factory nightclub when he was told he could not bring underage girls backstage and into his dressing room.

Employees told police they had been punched, kicked and pushed by Short along with his associate 38-year-old Michael T. Walton.

According to police reports, none of the employees were seriously hurt and both Short and Walton were taken to a local jail and released after posting bail.

Too Short faces three counts of misdemeanor battery and Walton is charged with two counts of misdemeanor battery.

They are due in court August 4th for the charges.
