Too $hort fails to complete community service required for past plea deal.
Los Angeles, California rapper Too $hort will serve three months in jail following his recent appearance in front of a judge.
TMZ reports that as part of a past plea deal, which stemmed from a DUI arrest in 2013, Too $hort was to complete community service and spend three years on probation.
The judge in the matter ruled that the musician did not complete his community service. In order to avoid jail time, Too $hort was then offered the opportunity to complete his community service if he spent an added three years on probation.
He instead opted for the 90-day jail sentence. According to TMZ, Too $hort could spend less than three months in jail.
“…He’s now in the first day of a 90-day sentence. The reality, though … because of overcrowding, he’ll probably be a free man soon,” TMZ reports.
Too $hort’s DUI arrest took place in March of 2013 after he was pulled over for a traffic violation. Upon being pulled over by police officers, he attempted to run away, but was eventually caught seconds later by authorities. The entire ordeal was caught on videotape.
