LOS ANGELES — A rapper was pulled over in Los Angeles Wednesday morning on suspicion of drunk driving and drug possession when he led police on a very brief foot pursuit before being apprehended.

Todd Anthony Shaw, better known as ‘Too $hort,’ was arrested around 3 a.m. near Hollywood Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles Times.

David Weintraub, a rep for the rapper, denies the drugs belonged to his client, which police identified as ecstasy laced with meth, according to sources.

He is currently in custody on $10,000 bail and is facing at least one felony charge.
