|Rapper Wiz Kalifia Was Arrested In L.A. LAX|
Airport For Riding A Hover board
But Khalifa’s decision to ride his hoverboard through the airport wasn’t for entertainment, it was a principled stand and a deep commitment to emerging technologies.
He also shared a photo of his arrest and a defense of the “technology everyone will be using in the next six months.”I stand for our generation and our generation is gonna be riding hover boards so if you don't like it eat a dick!— Cameron (@wizkhalifa) August 23, 2015
And jokes aside, the arrest looks a bit rough for the offense. Police claim Khalifa was resisting.All because I didn't want to ditch the technogy everyone will be using in the next 6 months. Do what you want kids. pic.twitter.com/7F0KIQgFrA— Cameron (@wizkhalifa) August 23, 2015

In the first video, Khalifa is seen interacting with the police, telling them “they can’t do nothing” about him riding his hoverboard.
In the next clip, Khalifa is seen on the ground surrounded by three cops who tell him to “get on the ground” and stop resisting. Khalifa assures the officers, “I’m not resisting” as he’s being handcuffed.
Representatives for Khalifa did not reply to Rolling Stone’s request for comment.
This isn’t the first time Khalifa used social media to document a run-in with airport law enforcement: In May 2014, the rapper took a selfie from jail after getting busted for marijuana at an El Paso, Texas airport.
The arrest slightly delayed the arrival of Khalifa’s then-new mixtape 28 Grams. “"They’re tryna figure out how many grams I had,” Khalifa noted. “How ironic.”
