Any good skate stories where your like what the fuck just happened?
On my way to the Girl warehouse to film my Team BK segment, we picked up the filmer and a friend in LA. We were waiting for them to get in the car and about five cop cars and ten cops pulled guns on us and had us get out of the car and put our hands on the wall. They thought our friend was some major robbery suspect. But they had the wrong dude and we were all freaked out. Definitely a WTF moment
