Wiz Khalifa was shoved to the ground and cuffed by three officers all because he "refused" to get off his personal hoverboard at LAX. See the receipts inside...
Saturday afternoon (timestamp 3:56 pm PT), IT WENT DOWN at LAX.....we'll explain.
Rapper Wiz Khalifa was thrown to the ground at LAX because three U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officers claimed he refused to get off his hoverboard.
Wiz documented the take-down on both Instagram and Twitter explaining, "They love saying stop resisting....All because I wouldn't ditch the technology everyone will be using in the next 6 months."
Wiz believes hoverboards are the "next" thing and pretty soon, we'll all be riding them (including the cops)! So why won't they just let him be great?
In the video below, you'll see Wiz verbally defending himself, telling the cops,
"This? I didn’t do nothing, anyway. What you want to do? Put me in jail because I didn’t listen to what you say? We can have all the conversations you want to, you can end up on TMZ, destined to become as famous as you wanna be.”
So.....that's when they took him down.
Watch the videos he shared.....

On his Instagram, Wiz added the caption, "3 cops yell stop resisting. Only thing to do is let em know. I'm not resisting, I'm doin what I want."
As you can see from the timestamps on his social media, Wiz was tweeting and posting videos less than two hours after he was cuffed, so we don't believe he was "arrested" in the traditional sense. The cops likely detained him for 30 minutes or so....
So far, we know the Los Angeles Police Department is not involved. Officer Alicia Hernandez told the NY Daily News that the Los Angeles Airport Police had no interaction with Wiz Khalifa on Saturday. The officers in the video appear to be CBP (Custom Border & Protection) officers, she said.
TheYBF.com put in calls to LAX's airport security and public relations departments and are awaiting a response. We hope this wasn't a PR stunt....
