Rap veteran Todd "Too Short" Shaw was reportedly arrested last night in Idaho after assaulting three security guards following a concert.
According to reports, security tried to stop the rapper from inviting underage women backstage.
According to the Boise Police Department, Short and another man are accused of punching, kicking and pushing three security guards at a concert venue ... after the guards allegedly tried to stop Short from bringing "underage females backstage and into his dressing room."
