Wiz Khalifa arrested at LAX for riding hoverboard

The 27-year-old rapper was told to 'stop resisting' as he was arrested

Police in Los Angeles briefly arrested Wiz Khalifa yesterday evening (22 August) after he used a hoverboard inside LAX airport.

A series of Instagram and Twitter posts appear to show the rapper refusing to leave his hoverboard, then being arrested. A number of policemen held the rapper to the ground, telling him to “stop resisting” to which he replied, “I’m not resisting, sir.”

In his social media posts Wiz said, “Haven’t been slammed and cuffed in a while. That was fun.” He added, “They love to say ‘stop resisting'” and “All because I didn’t want to ditch the technology everyone will be using in the next 6 months. Do what you want, kids.”

He went on, “I stand for our generation and our generation is gonna be riding hover boards so if you don’t like it eat a dick!” before concluding, “I got some awesome weed and a bad one to roll it for me so it’s all good.”

In April Wiz Khalifa’s ‘See You Again’, which features Charlie Puth and which plays over a tribute to the film’s sadly departed star Paul Walker, became the fastest-selling single of 2015 and broke Spotify records for most plays in a day and a week, with 4.2 million plays on one day and 21.9 million in one week.

Chairman and CEO of Atlantic Records, Craig Kallman, described the song as “one of those special moments when all the forces have aligned to create a song that is resonating emotionally with millions around the world. The combination of Wiz’s star power with the introduction of Charlie as a brilliant singer and songwriter is truly magical, striking a nerve with Paul Walker’s legion of fans and the film’s enormous audience”.
