Wiz Khalifa Arrested At Airport This Weekend

(Radio.com) Wiz Khalifa was arrested on Saturday (August 22) in an airport according to his Twitter feed. The "See You Again" rapper was detained by at least six airport police, when he wouldn't give up his "technology."

Khalifa, whose real name is Cameron Jibril Thomaz, was returning to Los Angeles from Finland. He is believed to have been riding his gold-plated self-balancing scooter which caused the dust-up with U.S. Customs Officers ultimately leading to his takedown. Photos and video were captured which clearly display the number of officers needed to subdue him.

In the process of being taken to the ground and handcuffed, an officer can be clearly heard commanding Khalifa to "stop resisting" following by the rapper repeatedly replying, "I'm not resisting sir, I'm not resisting sir." After the dust settled, Khalifa remarked sarcastically, "Haven't been slammed and cuffed in a while. That was fun."

The 27 year-old was spotted riding his Smart Balance Wheel though LAX earlier this week flanked by security and an onslaught of cameras. See video and read more here.
