ROLL THE TAPE: Too Short Literally RUNNING From The Cops, Plus He Says The Drugs "Weren't His" (VIDEO)
If you need to end your day with some sh*ts and giggles, check out Too Short caught on tape running from the cops inside...
We reported yesterday that Too Short was arrested when he tried to run from the cops after getting popped for a DUI. Now, there's footage. Check it below:
This dude thought this was a "Cops" audition.
Meanwhile, Too Short says the drugs (which may be Meth laced with Ecstasy) found in the backseat of the police car he rose to jail in, are not his. But cops are pinning a drug possession charge on him. TMZ reports:
Short's rep, David Weintraub, tells TMZ ... the rapper was clean in the drug department, adding, "Short was diligently searched and cuffed prior to being placed in the disgustingly filthy patrol car."
And the rep goes on ... "It was 3 AM, the cop car smelled like vomit and was littered with remnants from prior arrests of the evening." Translation: A miscreant with a penchant for meth dropped his load in the backseat.
But LAPD cops tell us ... the protocol is to thoroughly search the patrol car -- including the backseat -- after every arrest.
As for why Too Short fled on foot after he was initially suspected of DUI, the rep tells us, "In the past, Short, like many others, has been mistreated by law enforcement and these unfortunate prior incidents led to the complications after the stop."
His rep also said, "Any assertion that Short was carrying powder is ridiculous! Every rap fan knows Short's into weed." Somebody give that man a raise...for the stupidest statement from a PR rep in 2013.
