Saturday, Jul 6, 2013 10:55AM
West Coast rapper Too $hort is still running into problems with law enforcement just months after failing to escape from police as reports claim his Porsche is currently impounded.
Details of the Short Dog's latest police woe surfaced online early Saturday (July 6).
More car trouble for Too Short ... TMZ has learned, cops impounded the rapper's Porsche last Friday. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Too Short -- real name Todd Shaw -- was pulled over by police in L.A. last Friday for not having license plates on the car. Once he was pulled over, we're told police discovered Short's license had been suspended. According to law enforcement sources, TS was cited for driving on a suspended license ... and the Porsche was impounded. He ended up catching a ride home in a limo (classy). (TMZ)
Despite its seriousness, reports claim Short is not sweating the impoundment.
We spoke to people close to Too Short, and we're told the guy's not upset at all -- "That's just the way he rolls." It's unclear if he has since retrieved the car. It's the second automotive pain in the ass for the rapper -- as we first reported, Too Short was busted for DUI in March ... when he ran from cops. 'Memba that video? (TMZ)
Recently, the California rapper came forward to speak on trying to resist an arrest.
"I just ran all the way out to Miami, man," Short said in an interview when jokingly told he might be running in the next Olympics Games. "I had to get the hell up out of LA. I only got one thing to say, man, if I would have hit that corner, y'all would have seen a whole different Short you've never seen. If I wouldn't have tripped, you would have never seen me. They'd have had the helicopters out on the morning news -- it's one thing y'all don't realize though. I was across the street from my house. I was about to run home." (Shade 45)
Shortly after the arrest went down, TS admitted he did not understand the drug possession charge.
Rapper Too Short has no clue what happened during his arrest this morning! While he thought he was arrested for driving under the influence, his booking sheet says otherwise. Following his release from the slammer, the rapper said: "I thought it was a DUI. This says possession ... I'm confused, man." Unluckily, the listed felony drug possession charge doesn't mean that Too Short is off the hook for a DUI. Seeing as how he was CLEARLY intoxicated when he was cuffed, it is likely that the cops only booked him on the highest charge and will leave the rest to the D.A.'s office to prosecute. Too sad! It is prettyyy obvious that he has a drug problem, so let's hope he gets the help he needs and isn't just thrown in the slammer! (Perez Hilton)
