Rapper Too Short Cited for Carrying Loaded Handgun at Airport

Too Short

Too Short was cited at a Burbank airport on Thursday (Oct. 2) for possession of a loaded handgun, according to authorities.

Burbank police Sgt. Claudio Losacco says the rapper, born Todd Anthony Shaw, was in the process of passing through the security checkpoint Wednesday when a TSA employee noticed the handgun going through a baggage scanner.

Before he could be detained, the rapper fled the building through a side door, leaving behind his shoes, bag and wallet. He returned to the airport the following day with his attorney, where he was cited for possession of a loaded handgun in a public place, and then released.

The rapper is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 3.
