Too $hort has scored himself yet another DUI. The rapper was arrested in Los Angeles this morning (Mar. 20) after being pulled over for a traffic violation. Police gathered that he was under the influence and was apprehended by authorities around 3 a.m. in near Hollywood Boulevard and Las Palmas Boulevard.
According to reports 46-year-old $hort, whose real name is Todd Shaw, was probed for a breathalyzer exam and attempted to flea the scene on foot. After falling down the street amidst his failed escape, the exam revealed that Shaw’s blood alcohol level was 0.09%, just above the 0.08% legal limit in the state of California. Police also reported that he was in possession of drugs at the time of arrest.
Back in 2009, $hort was arrested twice for driving under the influence in Las Vegas. In one instance, he was charged with drug possession, speeding and exhibition of power. Both arrests happened in a three-month period.
Details on his latest arrest and charges are still developing.
