Too Short Arrested For DUI & Tried to Flee The Scene [PHOTO]

Legendary Rapper Too Short has been arrested this morning in LA for a DUI charge and tried to flee the scene.

According to TMZ:

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Short -- real name Todd Anthony Shaw -- was pulled over in L.A. a couple hours ago for some traffic violation ... and when cops approached the vehicle, they determined he appeared under the influence.

Now here's where it gets weird -- when police attempted to administer a breathalyzer test, law enforcement sources tell us Too Short took off running ... and tripped on the street.

Police apprehended Too Short and placed him under arrest ... and tossed him into a police cruiser.

On the way back to the station, things got even crazier -- we're told Too Short tried to dump narcotics in the back of the cruiser. According to law enforcement sources, Too Short is currently being booked for DUI and felony narcotics possession.
