Legal matters for Too Short aren’t looking Too Good.
Arrested for what the rapper thought was a drinking and driving charge, Too Short is now looking at a drug possession charge. But according to his rep David Weintraub, this is unfounded b*llshizz.
The rep stated that Short, in fact, drug-free, then added:
"Short was diligently searched and cuffed prior to being placed in the disgustingly filthy patrol car."
That is, a disgustingly filthy patrol car that allegedly contained drug remnants of a previous arrest:
"It was 3 AM, the cop car smelled like vomit and was littered with remnants from prior arrests of the evening."
LAPD, of course, says that the car had been searched — as protocal dictates — before Short was ever taken in. It’s also being reported that the drugs in question are most likely Ecstasy, possibly laced with meth, though testing has yet to confirm.
Though the details of Too Short’s initial arrest have yet to be released, his rep did add one final remark. And trust us, folks. This is the icing on the cake:
"Any assertion that Short was carrying powder is ridiculous! Every rap fan knows Short's into weed."
HA! May the Too Short vs. LAPD saga continue!
