Wiz Khalifa was arrested at LAX yesterday afternoon after refusing to get off of his "hoverboard" while in the airport. The Pittsburgh rapper was on his way back into the US after performing shows in France and Finland. In subsequent tweets, he shows a video of the initial altercation with the police before it escalates to Wiz facedown on the ground with six cops restraining him.

No word yet on exactly what kind of hoverboard Wiz was using at the time, but it seems likely that it was actually the IO Hawk that he (and so many other artists/influencers) seem to be riding right now.
