Power 107.5

Too Short trying in vain to flee from cops during his DUI arrest early Wednesday morning.

TMZ broke the story … the rapper was popped for DUI in Hollywood and later booked on drug possession as well.

During the field sobriety test, Short is chatting with a couple of cops and then suddenly books it, but trips on the sidewalk and is subdued within seconds.

Short’s rep says he ran because the rapper has had bad run-ins with law enforcement.

You gotta see this!
