Too Short Arrested In Idaho For Assault

UPDATE: Short Dog says reports were exaggerated and false, concerning his arrest.

Oakland, California Hip Hop pioneer Too Short was arrested this morning in Boise, Idaho. The Dangerous Crew founder was taken in by police after security from the city's Knitting Factory. Reports state that the 28-year Rap veteran attacked security, when they told Short he was not permitted to bring under-aged women backstage at the drinking venue. Short and an associate were arrested for misdemeanor battery.

Too Short has been released from Ada County Jail this morning, says The Idaho Statesman newspaper. He will be expected to return to a Boise court date on August 4th.

Earlier this year, Too Short released the digital album, Still Blowin'. He will appear on Fat Joe's The Darkside Volume 1 album, due later this month. (July 15)

UPDATE: The morning of July 19, Too Short contacted XXLMag.com to clarify reports via a statement. While the full statement can be read there, the veteran emcee did stress, "I don’t blame these outlets for running with the story because it’s about Too Short the ‘dirty rapper’ who has never had a scandal and it involved the words ‘underage girls.’"

The emcee emphasized that he works with youth in his hometown, and refutes those reports. Short did not deny the arrest for assault.

    Dayum, we just did a post on Too Short the other day too... That's too bad... 18-20 isn't illegal, but bringing them into an establishment where they serve liquor is no good. Ah well, when you kids turn 40 you realize two things: 1) that you don't want a young woman; 2) it is extremely difficult for many 40+ men to get one. Too Sheezy is not feeling the former of the two.

    • 12udy G 619

      Underage to drink doesnt mean they wernt 18. Too short is a pioneer of west coast hip hop. If u aint up on venues the knitting factory is nationwide usually used by independent artist. Bostonboy stay hating u probably still mad the celtics couldnt pull it off

    • not a good look

      this nigga on that borderline padophile shit. i dont give a fuck if you a pimp or not, that shit is just questionable. not a good look at all.

    • Get ya sum

      4real! Got respect but what tha fuck

  • Nico 3

    Dude's a grown ass 40 somethin year old man. I don't care what he's famous for. Know where to draw the line, cause in prison, he's either somebody's bitch, or everybody's target, if it gets out he's been fucking around with under-age kids.

    • asa

      18-20 is still fucked up thats on some daddy issues dat too short is happy to fufill fucked up but hey old niggas go through mid-life crisis

    • Blaque Ali

      Once again. At a venue that serves alcohol, underage means they they weren't of legal age to consume alcohol!!! Come on man, read what the article is saying. If they were under 18, he would be in jail for child endangerment, providing alcohol to a minor and other charges like that. Since he only got assault, then they were more than likely over 18.

  • Level32

    I aint even mad at short for this one, that nigga's a pimp and pimps turn em out young. I don't agree with it, he got held accountable for his misdeeds and now has to go to court and deal with the consequences, but that's the life of shorty the pimp. He still in the game what his album called "I can't stay away" thus why I aint trippin about this. He's a pimp, what'd you expect? You elevate criminal types to stardum and you think they gonna change they stripes? Get the Fuck outta here with that thinking.

    • __________________

      they shouldn't have mention the "under-aged" girls because now people arent talking about this assault charge and they think he's fucking with girls under the age of 18 but thats not what he was doing. they over 18 but under 21 so thats why this nigga only getting an assault charge. Or else they would of done his ass like kobe or mr.golden shower himself.
