Too $hort Running From Police Footage [Video]
Yesterday Too $hort was arrested early Wednesday on DUI and felony drug possession charges. This new video surfaced which captured the moment he tried to sprint from officers. Unfortunately, the “Blow the Whistle” rapper was too slow. Shortly after, Too $hort was pinned to the pavement. TMZ reports:
“Short’s rep, David Weintraub, tells TMZ … the rapper was clean in the drug department, adding, “Short was diligently searched and cuffed prior to being placed in the disgustingly filthy patrol car.”
And the rep goes on … “It was 3 AM, the cop car smelled like vomit and was littered with remnants from prior arrests of the evening.” Translation: A miscreant with a penchant for meth dropped his load in the backseat.
But LAPD cops tell us … the protocol is to thoroughly search the patrol car — including the backseat — after every arrest.
As for why Too Short fled on foot after he was initially suspected of DUI, the rep tells us, “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.”
