Rapper Too $hort is facing four misdemeanor charges after being arrested last month in Los Angeles. Too Short - born Todd Anthony Shaw - was picked up on March 20th for suspicion of driving under the influence after police pulled over his vehicle for a traffic violation. Police also allegedly found a small amount of drugs in the police cruiser he was transported in.
According to TMZ, L.A. City Attorneys slapped the rapper with two counts of DUI, one count of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of marijuana while driving. Too Short is set to appear in court on April 15th.
Last month the Los Angeles District Attorney passed on an opportunity to charge Too Short with felony drug possession after determining that the amount of drugs found was too small to move forward with the case. Too Short previously stated that the drugs were not his. He said they probably belonged to someone who had been transported in the police car before him.
