U.S. Marshals Raid CES Hoverboard Booth

The Consumer Electronics Show took a dramatic turn Thursday when two U.S. federal marshals showed up at the Las Vegas event to seize alleged contraband hoverboards made by a Chinese company, Bloomberg reported. The marshals carried out a raid on Changzhou First International Trade Company’s booth, confiscating a one-wheeled skateboard, a sign, and fliers promoting the product. Future Motion, a company that says it owns the patents and trademarks of a product called Onewheel, accused the Chinese company of making knockoffs. Future Motion reportedly worked with law enforcement for a week to carry out the raid.
