[TMZ] Rapper Too Short has just been arrested for DUI … after allegedly attempting to run from police, TMZ has learned.
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, 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 … and tripped as he ran down the street.
Police got their man and placed him under arrest … then 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.
Our sources say Too Short blew a .09 … just over the .08 legal limit.
According to law enforcement sources, Too Short is currently being booked for DUI and felony narcotics possession.
