Too Short ran into some trouble recently when he was pulled over by the cops for a traffic violation and he appeared to be under the influence.

TMZ reports that Too Short was arrested for a DUI in L.A. after he attempted to run from the cops when they tried to administer a breathalyzer test. Apparently he tripped while running away, and the police caught up with him and brought him to the station.

The rapper blew a .09, which is just over the legal limit of .08. On top of this, he apparently tried to dump narcotics while in the police car.

Law enforcement sources say that Too Short is being charged with a DUI and felony narcotics possession.

Update: Too Short has been released from jail. No D.U.I. for Mr. Short.
