Rapper Too Short fell foul of the law last week (28Jun13) when cops allegedly caught him driving on a suspended licence.
The hip-hop star, real name Todd Anthony Shaw, was behind the wheel of his luxury Porsche when police in Los Angeles stopped him for not having licence plates displayed on the vehicle.
The authorities then discovered the Blow The Whistle hitmaker's licence was suspended, reports TMZ.com.
He was subsequently handed a citation and his car was impounded, but he is said to have travelled home in style by catching a ride in a limousine.
It was not Too Short's first run-in with cops this year (13) - in March, the star was arrested for narcotics possession and driving under the influence (DUI) at a traffic stop in Hollywood.
He was slapped with four misdemeanour charges, including two DUI counts, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana while driving.
