An hour after the incident the “High School 2” actor tweeted a video of the incident, writing, “They love saying stop resisting”. Haven’t been slammed and cuffed in a while. ‘What you want to do? As he’s being handcuffed, Khalifa informs the officers that, “I’m not resisting”. What’re you going to do put me into jail because I’m not going to listen to what you say?


Jaime Ruiz, a US Customs and Border Protection spokesman, said Khalifa was handcuffed but not arrested.
