Wiz Khalifa detained at LAX for riding hoverboard

LOS ANGELES --Wiz Khalifa was detained by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol at Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday, and the "See You Again" rapper claims it was all because he refused to get off of his hoverboard.

The 27-year-old rapper posted a video to Instagram of himself getting handcuffed face down on the ground by at least five police officers. In the video, officers can be heard yelling, "Stop Resisting."

Khalifa, whose real name is Cameron Jibril Thomaz, can then be heard saying several times, "I'm not resisting, sir."

Khalifa also posted a video to Twitter of himself surrounded by officers before the takedown.

"You can't do nothing anyway, what you gonna do, put me in jail?" he asks.

"Haven't been slammed and cuffed in a while, he also tweeted. "That was fun."

"When one user commented, "Over a damn hoverboard? Haha that's hilarious!" Wiz replied, "What's even funnier than them not bein able to do sh*t is they'll be riding them soon as well. Maybe ones I design."

The gadget, often referred to as a hoverboard, is actually a self-balancing, two-wheeled scooter.

"I stand for our generation and our generation is gonna be riding hover boards so if you don't like it eat a di*k!" he added. "I got some awesome weed and a bad one to roll it for me so it's all good."

ET has reached out to Khalifa's rep, but has received no comment so far.

Khalifa was released without charges following the incident.
