Too Short Busted for “Burnin’ Rubber” Under the Influence

Veteran West Coast rapper Too Short was arrested yesterday morning (August 27) in Las Vegas on DUI charges.

TMZ reports that Short Dog was put in cuffs at 4 a.m on Thursday after the Las Vegas Metro Police found the 43-year-old rapper speeding. According to police reports TS was under the influence of alcohol and possessed a small amount of marijuana in his car.

This is not the first time Short Dog haqs been popped for a DUI. Three months ago he was busted on the same charge, also in Vegas.

He is reportedly still behind bars. –Max G

    Considering that it’s Too Short that we’re talking about here, it makes me wonder if the “Burning Rubber” phrase is a double-entendre of sorts (pause). I know that I have, while listening to his tracks, over the years. (Ha!)

      He had a song called Burnin Rubber (Shittin On Em) a couple of years ago.

    Dam Short Dog got busted! Every time I see Too Short. The first thing I think about is Freaky Tales! The Song that put him on the Map. DUI Charge ain’t no big deal. I glad he did not hurt nobody or somebody hurt him in accident. I will always be a Short fan. Pimp and Macker all in one man. The rest of ya’ll take notes.

    You know you’re getting old(er) when a picture of a rapper you grew up listening to looks more like your Grandfather than your homeboy.

    This flick does him no justice; you’ve got to see the mugshot.
