Rapper Wiz Khalifa was back in a recording studio Monday, two days after being wrestled to the ground at Los Angeles International Airport for riding what he called a hoverboard through a terminal.

Khalifa posted a photo and video on his Twitter page of his Saturday run- in with authorities.

“Haven’t been slammed and cuffed in a while,” he wrote on Twitter. “That was fun.”

The video shows police confronting Khalifa at the airport, then forcing him face-down on the ground and handcuffed, all while insisting he was not resisting.

A spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection told the Los Angeles Times that Khalifa was not arrested, but he was detained and later apologized.

Khalifa said he was accosted for refusing to get off a “Back to the Future”-style hoverboard at the airport.

“All because I didn’t want to ditch the technology everyone will be using in the next 6 months,” he wrote on Twitter. “Do what you want kids.”

He posted a photo of himself Monday back at work in a recording studio.
