Wiz Khalifa was violently arrested at LAX yesterday (August 22) for the crime of riding a hoverboard. It appears that the Pittsburgh rapper wasn’t resisting, but was nevertheless manhandled by authorities.
Wiz posted a pic to his Twitter account Saturday night with the caption, “They love saying stop resisting.” The rapper also posted a video of himself on the hoverboard, surrounded by cops saying, “All because I wouldn’t ditch the technology everyone will be using in the next 6 months.”
A video on Twitter of the arrest shows Wiz surrounded by officers.
We’ve reached out to law enforcement for comment — so far … no word back.
In said footage (see below), Wiz is calmly heard saying, “I’m not resisting, sir,” multiple times while at least three officers have him pinned down to the ground.
