TSA authorities are blowing the whistle on rapper Too $hort.
The 48-year-old hip-hop vet was cited after a loaded gun was found in his carry-on luggage at the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California Wednesday.
Burbank police officer Joshua Kendrick says Too $hort, born Todd Anthony Show, bolted from the security checkpoint after the gun was found, leaving his belongings behind. He returned to the airport Thursday with his lawyer, at which time he was cited for alleged possession of a loaded handgun in a public place and released. Too $hort is scheduled to appear in court in Burbank on November 3rd.
