Hoverboarding Wiz Khalifa Handcuffed For Being Ahead Of His Time

Wiz Khalifa was detained by Customs and Border Patrol officers yesterday for riding a “hoverboard” around in Los Angeles International Airport. When the rapper refused to dismount his vehicle of the future, the myopic fools standing in the way of progress wrestled him to the ground and cuffed him.

3 cops yell stop resisting. Only thing to do is let em know. I'm not resisting, I'm doin what I want.

The police response (“Stop resisting! Stop resisting!”) does seem like a bit overkill, but I guess those stuck in the past will go to great lengths in their futile attempts to maintain a crumbling status quo. But the future waits for no man! And that future is now, according to Back To The Future II! Also, I guess Wiz Khalifa is designing hoverboards now?

Sidenote: the “hoverboard” in question is really more of a scooter, one of those self-balancing two-wheelers that have been sweeping YouTube and Vine recently. Interestingly, Khalifa rode one around LAX a few days ago after the Teen Choice Awards and didn’t seem to get in any trouble that time.
