Rapper Too Short, whose real name is Todd Shaw, was arrested Wednesday night in Boise, ID following a concert at a local club.

According to a Boise Weekly article, the rapper got into a fight with security at the Knitting Factory after guards refused to allow sub-legal drinking age girls into Too Short’s backstage dressing room. Three security employees of the club said they were punched, kicked and pushed by Too Short and another man.

Too Short has been charged with three counts of misdemeanor battery, while the other man was charged with two counts of misdemeanor battery. Both men have since posted bail, and have been released from jail.

No word yet on if any Bogus Basin ski bunnies were among the girls who caught the interest of Too Short, resulting in the altercation with security. The ski resort is located just 16 miles outside the venue’s city.
