(Newswire.net — November 21, 2013) Boise, ID — Rapper Too Short was arrested after a show in Boise, ID after allegedly attacking bouncers after they wouldn’t let him bring underage girls backstage in July of 2010.  

“According to the Boise Police Department, Short and another man are accused of punching, kicking and pushing three security guards at a concert venue … after the guards allegedly tried to stop Short from bringing underage females backstage and into his dressing room. “  Taken from one of the many news stories posted back in 2010 when the incident happened.


After researching the court proceedings since then on Idaho Public record, it can be seen that Todd Anthony Shaw, Too Short, entered a plea of guilty in absentia in July of 2011 and was sentenced to 60 hours of community service and 673.50 in fines.  He was also sentenced to one year of unsupervised misdemeanor probation.  The record does not state whether his community service was completed.


One year later on July 11th, 2012, the record states that his fines were reported to collections for failure to pay.  Then yesterday, November 19th, 2013, the record shows a letter was submitted to the court from an O. Simmons.  It is not clear what this letter entails, but upon further searching there doesn’t seem to be a warrant on record with the ADA County Sherriff’s office at this time. 


The videos to the left of this article show Too Short’s reaction the night after the events, and an interview 2 years later, respectively.  Because of foul language, the videos are NSFW.

Since there is no warrant issued for his arrest, it looks like his December 6th show at the Revolution Concert House and Event Center in Garden City, ID will probably occur as scheduled.
