Police in the Norwegian capital briefly detained four Americans traveling through an Oslo tunnel on electric skateboards, and a Norwegian newspaper said one of them was rapper lil nas x.
The authorities briefly closed the Festning tunnel, but none of the scooter drivers were arrested or charged.
The tourists had followed a GPS route into the 1.8-kilometre (1.1-mile) downtown tunnel on Monday night, police said. The four “used up a lot of the road,” so a transit center had to close some lanes, police said.
“They apologized. We have escorted them out,” the police department said on Twitter.
The Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet reported on Tuesday that Lil Nas X, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill, was one of the four tourists.
The musician is in Oslo to perform at the nearby Slottsffell open-air festival on Wednesday.
It was not the first time that a foreign tourist had toured part of a vast and busy tunnel system in the center of the Norwegian capital on an electric scooter. In 2019, a man who said he followed a route given by Google Maps entered the nearly 10-mile-long Opera Tunnel complex. He was not charged or arrested.
