Earlier in the week we reported that 90’s rapper Too $hort was arrested in the Burbank airport for trying to board a plane with a loaded gun in his luggage. The rapper fled the airport, returned the next day with his lawyer to receive a citation for misdemeanor for carrying a loaded weapon in a public place.
In a recent interview with VladTV, Too Short opened up about the incident, revealing that it was a complete accident that the gun was in his bag and to clear up that he did not “run” from the airport like some reports have been stating:
“I went to the airport and there was a gun in my bag and obviously it wasn’t purposely [there],” he explained. “Who would go through TSA with a pistol?… I made a mistake, packed the wrong bag, got there. When I realized what the problem was. I wanted to just talk to my legal people and say, ‘Hey man, can we figure this out?’.
It seems that’s just what happened, as when the rapper got in touch with security, there was a surprising lack of hassle. “Probably 20-30 minutes after it happened we called back, talked to TSA, we talked to Burbank PD, we arranged for me to come back and get cited… I did not get arrested. I did not run out of the airport… I made a big fucking mistake.”
Too $hort is scheduled to appear in court November 3rd for the citation misdemeanor received.
