UPDATE 3/21/13, 9:20 p.m. EST: The video of rapper Too Short running away from the cops has been released:
Too Short was arrested in Los Angeles for DUI and allegedly running from the police, TMZ reports.
Thursday morning, the famed 1980s rapper, whose real name Todd Anthony Shaw, was pulled over on a traffic violation. When the cops allegedly approached Too Short’s vehicle, they suspected that the rapper was under the influence.
After police officers tried to administer a breathalyzer test, Too Short allegedly took off running on foot. Law enforcement officials told TMZ that the rapper actually tripped down the street as he fled the scene, but the cops reportedly caught up with the rapper and took him in to custody. As police drove Too Short to the station, they claim he attempted to dump drugs in the backseat of the cruiser.
Too Short eventually blew a .09 on the breathalyzer test, which is just over the .08 legal limit.
The rapper is currently being booked on DUI and felony narcotics possession charges.
