Skateboard news: Antwuan Dixon Documentary

"Who is Antwuan Dixon?" is a 15 minute documentary wrote, produced, and directed by Zack Warren with no less than Antwuan Dixon. Antwuan is one of the best professional skateboarders in the world and comes form a very hard and interesting life. Antwuan lived with Zack on and off for about 6 months and after seeing so many videos of him fighting for 15 or 30 seconds the pair decided to show the real Antwuan Dixon. They wanted to give a real look at this amazing one of a kind person and give him a chance to tell his story through his eyes.

Antwuan Willis "Big Kandy" Dixon wa born August 19, 1988 in in Victorville, California and raised in Carson. He rides for Baker Skateboards' sister company Deathwish Skateboards. Dixon was alternately featured in their promotional video Baker Has a Deathwish.
Dixon received his first skateboard from his older brother who had stolen it from a kid, while hanging out at a local recreational park. One of his earliest experiences on a skateboard, include an accident in which he rolled off of a car, subsequently busting his eye open. The incident occurred after he found himself challenged by his brother to do something bold, leaving the top part of the younger Dixon's head permanently scarred.
On March 22, 2008, Antwuan Dixon was arrested by Tampa police on charges stemming from possession of marijuana (less than 20 grams) and cocaine with the intent to sell, as well as the battery of 3 law enforcement officers. Dixon was irrevocably held on $4,000 dollars bond, which was subsequently paid for his immediate release.

In an interview for SkateBoardermag, Dixon spoke on the incident:

Ah, man, some crazy shit happened at Tampa! I was just over there chilling, smoking, and I'm chilling outside paying for that tatoo dude and this girl to get in. Then, all of a sudden, this girl's like, "Antwuan, you wanna go smoke?" So we go and we're about to smoke these blunts, then this truck rolls up and it's undercover cops. They just jumped out. Then, this lady had seen I had a big-ass bag of weed and shit. She'd seen my money and thought I was a drug dealer from out there. They were talking about seizing my money, and I was like, "I don't know what that means," and they're, like, "We're basically gonna take your money when we leave here," and I'm, like, "Hell no!" I'm sitting there being handcuffed and shit, so I got up and grabbed my wallet and then I held it. Then me and the cops started fighting for a little bit I guess. I don't know, I was pretty faded. I don't remember. Next thing you know, I end up in jail in Florida with all these batteries against police officers. Now I got to go to court and stuff all the time...
