Rapper Too Short has escaped a prison sentence after striking a plea deal over his Dui arrest in March (13).

The star was arrested for narcotics possession and driving under the influence (Dui) following a traffic stop in Hollywood. He was slapped with several misdemeanour charges, including two Dui counts, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana while driving.

He appeared in court in Los Angeles earlier this week (begs26Aug13) and pleaded no contest to driving over the limit. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to dismiss all other charges.

Too Short was handed three years probation and fined. He was also ordered to complete alcohol education classes.
