Too Short was arrested and cited Thursday (Oct. 2) for taking a loaded gun into a Southern California airport the day before and then fleeing the scene, Hip-Hop Wired reports. Short, whose birth name is Todd Shaw, was going through security at the Bob Hope International Airport in Burbank, Calif. around 1:45 p.m.
A TSA worker noticed a “carry-on bag passing through the scanner that contained a handgun,” at which point Short abandoned his belongings and left the airport “via an exit door, before he could be detained,” authorities said.
He came back the next day with his lawyer in tow and was cited for misdemeanor possession of a loaded handgun in a public place. Short is due in court Nov. 3.
The 48-year-old Bay Area rap vet is building a reputation for trying to get away when the law is involved. Last year, he was arrested for DUI after he attempted to run away from cops only to be caught and taken to jail. He was charged with four misdemeanors, including possession of marijuana.
