Old school rapper Too $hort was arrested for battery last Thursday (July 15th) after he allegedly tried to beat up three bouncers in a Boise, Idaho nightclub.
The 44-year-old Atlanta transplant (real name: Todd Shaw) was arrested and charged with three counts of misdemeanor battery stemming from an incident at a club called the Knitting Factory.
Police we called to the Knitting Factory sometime after 11 p.m. that night after receiving reports of a fight. Club security said they had been physically assaulted by Too Short and an associate.
If witness reports are accurate, the rapper got pissed when club security forbid him from bringing women under the age of 21 into his dressing room. (It’s club policy.)
No on was seriously injured and Shaw was released after posting bail. He is scheduled to return to court in Boise on August 4th and if convicted, faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Question of the day: Isn’t Too Short too dayum OLD for this sh*t? [Sidebar: I’m so glad I didn’t take his mom up on her offer…]
