Wiz Khalifa Arrested for Riding a Hoverboard

Wiz Khalifa has had his share of troubles. From weed, pot, beefs, and divorce, he has seen it all. But the recent reason of why he got into trouble with the police authorities is not settling down well with neither him nor his fans, as they do not see how he was in the wrong. The news spread when TMZ published an article showing the arrest of the rapper at Los Angeles airport. The video shared shows that it was shot on 22 August at 3:56 PM.

The trouble started when Khalifa was inside the premises of the airport and was enjoying a ride on his hoverboard. Now, we wish we had our own personal hoverboard, because who wouldn’t want it, but we definitely don’t want the trouble with the police that came along with it.

The police officers at the airport spotted him riding his hoverboard and strictly requested him to step down. Reports suggest that the star refused to do so, and things got out of hand a little bit from there. He was then tackled and cuffed at the airport because of his incorporation. Eh, bit extreme, don’t you think?

For years our generation has been dreaming of finally having access to hoverboards, and when 2015 approached, our expectations reached the peek as this was the year Marty McFly visits in the famous movie series Back To The Future, and introduces the hoverboards. Wiz Khalifa was not at all happy with this treatment, and he took it to Twitter to share his views.

“I stand for our generation and our generation is gonna be riding hover boards so if you don’t like it eat a dick!” said the rapper. “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 also posted a photo and a video of him during the whole scene, and people on the internet agreed that the actions taken were a bit too rough. The photo clearly showed him lying on the ground, his hand either handcuffed or held back. What starts a debate is how a huge number of officers were pinning him down, definitely more than necessary. In a country having history of policemen treating black residents inhumanly, one cannot stop oneself from adding this in the list. No official word from the police has been released yet.
