Video Released Of Too Short Running From Police During Drug Arrest

UPDATE #2: Too Short is charged with drug possession, but admits his own surprise that the Driving Under The Influence charges did not stick.

Oakland, California pioneering emcee Too Short has been arrested, according to TMZ.com. Short was reportedly stopped for a traffic violation by police in his vehicle early this morning (March 20) in Los Angeles, California. Appearing under the influence, the rapper was allegedly given a breathalyzer test and is reported at .09—which is over the legal limit.

TMZ's report also alleges that Short tried to escape police once he was out of the vehicle. Unnamed law enforcement sources claim, "Too Short took off  ... and tripped as he ran down the street." The report also claims that Too Short tried to dispose of drugs after being detained in the police vehicle.

At present, Too Short is believed to be in the custody of the Los Angeles Police Department.

In 2010, the longtime Jive Records artist was arrested in Boise, Idaho after he was charged with battery involving three club bouncers. Short later spoke out publicly, claiming reports were "exaggerated and false."

The full report is available at TMZ.com.

UPDATE: Yesterday (March 20) Too Short was released by the Los Angeles Police Department, hours after his arrest. TMZ captured video footage of Too Short leaving from the incident. The rapper clarified the charges, but affirmed earlier reports that he may have been intoxicated. "Possession of a controlled substance; I thought it was a D.U.I.," proclaimed Short, when asked about the charged. Further pressed about if he tried to dispose of evidence once in the police cruiser, all Short said was, "I was tryin' to avoid a D.U.I."

The rapper added that he'll return to court in April. No specific date was given.


UPDATE #2: TMZ.com has released a second video, taken yesterday (March 20) during Too Short's arrest. The video clearly depicts the famed rapper evading police before being apprehended.

    "If you are going to run at least make sure you know you can outrun them ie know youre fast" Then they'd run his plate, find where he lives, and arrest him there. Too Short is too old for this kind of stuff.

Besides that, I got about 5 years on me (Run!) Scared to death, running like I got bears on me (Run!) My Timbs start feeling like they Nike Airs on me (Run!) It's hard for me to slow down, it's like I'm on the Thruway My belt's in the crib on the floor by my two-way Now I'm trying to hold my hammer up, and my pants too If they don't kill me, they gon' give me a number I can't do Rather it be the streets, then jail where I die at And I'm ashmatic, so I'm lookin' for somewhere to hide at But they too close, and I got this new toast Imagine if I would of let off a shot or two, you know what I gotta do RUN!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Harlem's Reckoning
    Couldn't tell whether it was Too $hort or not. If it was, I wonder what went thru his mind. "I'm damn near 50 and I've been drinking, smoking, and fucking my entire life. I'm about to outrun these muthafuckas." Got about 20 ft lol. Gave it a try tho, props

    Those two cops are lucky they didn't pull Wayne over. Wayne would have shot them and walked away like it was no big deal. Then he would have tattoed 2 more tear drops.

      C'mon son! This is his second or third time being arrested for the same thing. You cant use the 'everybody makes mistakes' line when someone continues to do the same thing. Especially something as serious as impaired driving.

    "Too Short took off ... and tripped as he ran down the street." lol damn homie, you can't be running like that under the influence esp. at your age. Hope this was a reality check. Some people just can't grow up. Play Nas "2nd Childhood" BEIIIITCHHH!
