BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — Rapper Too Short has been cited at a Southern California airport a day after fleeing a security checkpoint when a screener found a loaded handgun in his carry-on luggage.

Burbank police Sgt. John Pfrommer says the rapper, born Todd Anthony Shaw, was passing through the checkpoint Wednesday when a Transportation Security Administration employee noticed the handgun going through a baggage scanner.

The rapper fled the building, leaving his belongings behind.

Pfrommer says Too Short returned to the airport Thursday with his attorney and was cited on misdemeanor possession of a loaded handgun in a public place.

He was released and is due in court Nov. 3. Police didn’t know who the rapper’s attorney is.

Too Short rose to prominence in the late 1980s out of Oakland. His hits include “Life Is … Too Short” and “Blow the Whistle.”

      He’s probably gotten away with it before. I have carried some items through customs that were not supposed to be allowed. Definitely not a gun, but not all TSA agents pay that close of attention.
