Wiz Khalifa was slammed to ground and handcuffed at LAX airport on Saturday afternoon (August 22) in Los Angeles, according to TMZ.

“Haven’t been slammed and cuffed in a while. That was fun,” Wiz posted to his Twitter.

“3 cops yell stop resisting. Only thing to do is let em know. I’m not resisting, I’m doin what I want,” he added along with an Instagram video where he can be seen being held down by several police officers.

It’s unclear whether any charges were filed.

    Stupid ass. You can’t ride nothing in airports, it’s security issues. No skate, no bicycle, especially NO MAGNETIC ELECTRICAL DEVICES.

    He is so gross.

    Pity such subspecies are still alive

    Observation:

    1) It’s an airport and millionaires shouldn’t even exempt from rules.

    2) The media is going to pin this on the police but Defying authority doesn’t mean the authority is excessively using power, it’s that the perpetrator is resisting complaince.

    3) I think these look so fun and I’ve seen a dozen of them already… Ridden by black males. Is the marketing targeting them specifically or is it another case of a certain demographic taking all the handicap carts at Walmart or taking the shortest path from point A to point B (Jaywalking) because they don’t like to walk.

    It was stupid for him to think he could ride the hover board in the airport. But I did not see him resisting arrest…so why were the police yelling stop resisting?

    If you’ve only seen them ridden by black males, you haven’t seen that many. Every large personality on youtube, vine, twitter, ig, etc. (black and white) have them. The demographic is all teens and young adults.

    If you don’t see the problem with what looks to be around 6 or 7 officers slamming someone onto the ground over a hoverboard, then you’re a part of the problem. Wiz Khalifa is a stick, literally no more than 150 lbs. This is not how you police. Yes, he was wrong for riding it in the airport, but the cops actions and use of that much force were unjustifiable and uncalled for.
