Wiz Khalifa was taken down to the ground by cops at Los Angeles International airport on August 22, for riding a hoverboard – the fairly new souped-up motorized version of a self balancing electric scooter.

That’s right, the 27-year-old rapper was cuffed and held down by five of LA’s finest, for riding the fun board,  which at its fastest, tops out at about 7 mph, so speeding was probably not the issue. No word on whether this trendy item is suddenly now an illegal mode of transportation, but Wiz was riding the very latest shiny gold plated version, so the criminal offense could have been the distracting shimmery glimmer that it may have caused as he coasted through the terminal.

Amber Rose’s ex-husband shared the take-down via Instagram, with the message, “3 cops yell stop resisting. Only thing to do is let em know. I’m not resisting, I’m doin what I want.” In the video, the police can be heard repeatedly warning a clearly nonresistant Wiz to “stop resisting”, to which Wiz replied calmly, “I’m not resisting sir”.

The “Black and Yellow” rapper tweeted that the scuffle was “All because I didn’t want to ditch the technology everyone will be using in the next 6 months. Do what you want kids.”

According to a report, Wiz was later released and will not be facing any charges.
