Too Short ran into some trouble recently when he was pulled over by the cops for a traffic violation and he appeared to be under the influence.
TMZ reports that Too Short was arrested for a DUI in L.A. after he attempted to run from the cops when they tried to administer a breathalyzer test. Apparently he tripped while running away, and the police caught up with him and brought him to the station.
The rapper blew a .09, which is just over the legal limit of .08. On top of this, he apparently tried to dump narcotics while in the police car.
Law enforcement sources say that Too Short is being charged with a DUI and felony narcotics possession.
French adult film star Celine Tran (who is largely known under past monikers “Katsumi” and “Katsuni”) sued Bow Wow in mid-2012, and has won. Reports say that the porn star successfully convinced judges that Bow Wow used unauthorized footage from her dancing in his video.
As Celine Tran, Katsumi appeared in a video for French band Electronic Conspiracy. The footage was illegally re-purposed in Bow’s “Drank In My Cup” video last year, his take on Kirko Bangz’ hit. With Bow Wow not responding to the suit, TMZ reports that a federal judge ordered the 106 & Park host to pay $79,346.07, and cease and desist distributing the April 2012 video.
