Too bad for Too Short. On Wednesday, the rapper (real name: Todd Anthony Shaw) was arrested on the suspicion of drunken driving and felony drug possession, the Los Angeles Police told E! News.

The rapper was taken into custody shortly after 3 a.m. and held on $10,000 bail. And while police haven't provided a lot of information about the arrest, LAPD Officer Cleon Joseph told the Los Angeles Times that Too Short briefly tried to run from police.

This isn't the "Blow the Whistle" rapper's first run-in with the law. In 2009, he had two arrests on suspicion of DUI, and in 2010, he was arrested on misdemeanor battery charges after performing at an Idaho nightclub.
