Rapper Too Short was arrested at a Burbank airport on Thursday for possession of a loaded handgun, police confirmed to E! News. 

Officials say the producer, whose real name is Todd Anthony Shaw, was in the process of going through a security checkpoint at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank when a TSA employee noticed a handgun in a carry-on bag going through the scanner. 

According to police, Too Short fled the building through a side door before he could be detained and left all his belongings behind, including his shoes. He returned to the airport the following day with his attorney, where he was cited and released for possession of a loaded handgun in a public place. 

The rapper is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 3. 

This isn't Too Short's first run-in with the law. 

In March 2013, the rapper was arrested on the suspicion of drunken driving and felony drug possession. At the time, LAPD Officer Cleon Joseph told the Los Angeles Times that Too Short briefly tried to run from police.

In addition, the "Blow the Whistle" rapper had two arrests on suspicion of DUI back in 2009 and in 2010, he was arrested on misdemeanor battery charges after performing at an Idaho nightclub.
