Rapper Too Short came up a bit short of sobriety after being arrested for DUI and narcotics possession on Wednesday morning in Los Angeles, reports TMZ. He’s currently being held on $10,000 bail.
He was initially pulled over for a traffic violation, but officers quickly noticed the rapper was acting erratic, as if he was under the influence. When authorities tried to issue a breathalyzer test, the rapper "ran from officers and actually tripped and fell. He got maybe half a block and was taken into custody there," says Lt. Marc Reina of the LAPD. When officers apprehended Short, they found his alcohol limit was 0.9, one-tenth above the legal limit of 0.8. Too Short then tried to discard the substances during the ride in the police car, according to Lt. Reina.
“It's just unfortunate this happened. We'll get to the bottom of it,” said his manager David Weintraub.
Too Short was arrested in 2009 for DUI, and 2010 for misdemeanor battery.
