Comedian Hannibal Buress Arrested for Disorderly Intoxication in Miami

Comedian Hannibal Buress Arrested for Disorderly Intoxication in Miami

Buress was arrested Saturday at 10:30 p.m. for disorderly intoxication, according to Miami Police.

A Youtube video showed a defiant Buress handcuffed against a Miami patrol vehicle and demanding to know why he's being detained. "For what?" he says in the video.

'Am I under arrest? "For what?. Explain what I'm detained for", he asks two police officers in the video.

Despite being told that he was being arrested for trespassing, Burress, who was booked into a Miami-Dade jail at 1:57 a.m., was never charged for that alleged crime. Additionally, the actor refused to enter the police auto on his own volition, so the officials had to force him inside. The arrest spawned the Twitter hashtag "Free Hannibal Buress". Once outside, Buress continued yelling profanities at the officer, causing a crowd to gather.




Exactly what led to Buress being put in handcuffs was unclear Sunday morning. Take the handcuffs off of me, I didn't do anything.

And some users on Twitter immediately began questioning the validity of Buress's arrest.

Buress then apparently went inside a bar, leaving the situation, but the cop followed him and asked Buress to go home, citing the comedian as being too drunk to stay in public.

In addition to his stand-up comedy, Buress has appeared in several films and television shows, most recently last weekend's The Disaster Artist.
