So, Apparently You’re Not Allowed To Ride A Hoverboard Around The Airport

August 23, 2015 / Posted by:

Which is something Amber Rose’s ex-husband and human Blair Witch stick bundle Wiz Khalifa learned last night. According to Wiz Khalifa, who documented his airport hoverboard drama on Twitter, and TMZ, who is basically the internet’s gossipy aunt (they know everything and they know it first), it all started when Wiz decided to roll around LAX like Marty McFly on one of those hoverboard things. Let’s see…how to describe those hoverboards. I got it – you know that time you went to the fancy outdoor mall and some bratty 12-year-old swerved around you like a rich kid robot while his mother hollered “Braedynn? Precious? Watch out for people, honey” behind him? Yes, that thing.

Anyway, I guess airport police at LAX weren’t into an eight-foot tall scarecrow weaving in and out of slow-moving people dragging rolly suitcases, so they took his hovering ass down. Shortly after it happened, Wiz tweetedHaven’t been slammed and cuffed in a while. That was fun.” then posted two videos from the incident. The first shows Wiz arguing with police, and the second shows the police introducing Wiz’s face to the floor. Warning: both videos appear to be filtered with some mid-90s Sony Handycam shit. So if you’re anything like me, you will be waiting for Bob Saget’s voice to come in and narrate both videos, America’s Funniest Home Videos-style, and sadly, that never happens.

Wiz never mentions if he was arrested for anything, or if they just put him in handcuffs. TMZ says they’re still waiting to hear back from the police to get their side of the story, because all we really know is what Wiz has put out there. But I’m going to guess it will be something like “Yeah, you’re not allowed to ride that shit around the airport, the end.

He also kept tweeting about it, like some kind of hoverboard freedom fighter, because why not.

I really love that Wiz is making this whole hoverboard situation even more dramatic by acting like he’s the Steve Jobs of hover technology or something. “All because I didn’t want to ditch the technology everyone will be using in the next 6 months.” Calm down, Wiz – I’m sure the creator of the Polaroid i-Zone thought the same thing.
