It looks like the East Oakland vet will be getting off scott free this time around.
According to TMZ, law enforcement sources have informedÂ them that rapperÂ Too $hortÂ won't be charged with felony drug possession after last Wednesday's DUI incident.Â He was previously cleared of a DUI charge, having blownÂ aÂ .09 (the legal limit beingÂ .08), and there don't seem to be any immediate consequences for his running from the copsÂ after theyÂ tried toÂ administerÂ a breathalyzer test.Â
Short was accused of ditching a small amount of meth and/or ecstasyÂ in the back of a police cruiser after being arrested for the DUI, but the rapper insists the dope wasÂ left by aÂ previousÂ arrestee. Short's representative has statedÂ thatÂ "any assertion that Short was carrying powder is ridiculous!Â Every rap fan knows Short's into weed" and thatÂ "the cop car smelled like vomit and was littered with remnants from prior arrests of the evening."
Whatever the case may be,Â the East Oakland rapperÂ doesn'tÂ haveÂ a felony record at this point, and as suchÂ the D.A. decided to dump the caseÂ on the L.A. City Attorney to be reviewed as aÂ misdemeanor.Â
Looks likeÂ $hort Dog lucked out this time.Â Peep the video for hisÂ classic 1990Â singleÂ "The Ghetto"Â below, just because:
