Evidently Too $hort didn't take away a lesson from that time Wayne Coyne showed up at the airport with a grenade, since the rapper is in trouble with the law after fleeing an airport when a loaded gun was discovered in his carry-on luggage.

As the Associated Press reports, the West Coast rap pioneer born Todd Anthony Shaw was going through security on Wednesday (October 1) at a Southern California airport when his handgun was spotted in the baggage scanner.

He fled the scene, according to police, leaving his bags behind. The rapper eventually returned to the airport the next day (October 2) with a lawyer in tow. He was given a citation for misdemeanour possession of a loaded handgun in a public place and released.

Too $hort is now due in court on November 3.

This isn't the first time that the MC has attempted to flee the scene. He was arrested last year when he was pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence and then attempted to run away from the cops.
