LAS VEGAS, Dec. 30 (UPI) -- Hoverboards, the self-balancing scooters blamed for fires and explosions around the country, are facing a fresh accusation: taking down Mike Tyson.

The former world heavyweight boxing champion posted a video to Instagram Monday showing him taking his daughter's new hot pink hoverboard for a test drive.

Iron Mike initially appears to be in control of the situation, even showing off some spin maneuvers on the hardwood floor.

However, an encounter with the edge of a carpet sends the boxer into an unfamiliar position -- on his back.

Tyson hashtagged the video, "Mike Tyson breaks back," but he later clarified in a tweet that he wasn't injured -- but the hoverboard was cracked.

"I need to get her another metallic pink!" he wrote.
