A rep for Too Short says that the drugs found in the back of the patrol car after he was arrested on Wednesday do not belong to the rapper.
Yesterday we reported on Too Short's arrest for a DUI and drug possession. Short has since been released, but the charge ofÂ narcoticsÂ is not sitting well with him.Â Reports say thatÂ the rapperÂ ditchedÂ hard drugs in the back of the police cruiser after being arrested by the cops.Â However,Â Too Short is claiming he had nothing to do with drugs.
Law enforcement sources say the drug was testedÂ preliminaryÂ and may be meth, or may beÂ EcstasyÂ laced with meth. Either way, Too Short says they aren't his. A rep for the rapper told TMZ,Â "Short was diligently searched and cuffed prior to being placed in the disgustingly filthy patrol car." The rep added,Â "It was 3 AM, the cop car smelled like vomit and was littered with remnants from prior arrests of the evening."
However, the LAPD says that copÂ cars areÂ searched thoroughly after each arrest and thusÂ Too Short is getting the blame.Â
Too Short's rep also clarified why the rapper felt he need to run from the cops initially, "In the past, Short, like many others, has been mistreated by law enforcement and these unfortunate prior incidents led to the complications after the stop."Â
Finally, he assured fans Short was not in possession of any type of powder.Â "Any assertion that Short was carrying powder is ridiculous!Â Every rap fan knows Short's into weed."
