Cops say rapper Too Short had meth in his possession when he was stopped behind the wheel of a vehicle at Hollywood Boulevard and North Las Palmas Avenue at 3:05 a.m. today.

You know where you don't want to be when you're holding meth at 3 o'clock in the morning? Hollywood and Las Palmas, which is well represented by the LAPD.

Anyway, the 46-year-old Bay Area rapper born Todd Anthony Shaw …

… was the subject of a traffic stop when cops arrested him on suspicion of DUI and, subsequently, for possession of methamphetamine, LAPD Officer Richard French told the Weekly.

TMZ says the rapper ran from cops after he was stopped but was caught.

Short, whose misogynistic tracks are staples of strip clubs everywhere (not that we'd know), had a show scheduled for tomorrow night at Club Nokia the Nokia Theater.

L.A. County Sheriff's Department inmate data shows that he was still being held behind bars today in lieu of $10,000 bail.
