Comedian Hannibal Buress Arrested in Miami for Disorderly Intoxication

Buress was arrested Sunday morning in Miami

Actor and comedian Hannibal Buress is facing disorderly intoxication charges in Miami. The hashtag #FreeHannibalBuress later trended on Twitter.

The Miami Police Department has not released details about the arrest, including the police report, but did say on Twitter, "Mr. Buress was arrested for disorderly intoxication, on December 9, 2017, at approximately 10:30 p.m", after documentary film director Billy Corben questioned the arrest.

A popular stand-up comedian was handcuffed early Sunday in Miami and video of his arrest is going viral.

If you listen closely to the video, Buress does have the last word. Additionally, the actor refused to enter the police vehicle on his own volition, so the officials had to force him inside.

The performer lives in Chicago, and it is unclear why he was in Miami at the time of his arrest. He's won the George Polk Award and was a finalist for the Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting. "For what?. Explain what I'm detained for", he asks two police officers in the video.

In a video posted online, Buress can be seen in handcuffs arguing with officers.

"You don't have probable cause for anything and you look hella stupid right now", Buress continues. Miami is playing host to celebrities from all over the globe for Art Basel-related parties.

According to TMZ, Buress was booked by cops in South Florida after confronting the officers in public. "What am I detained for?" he continued to ask the officers, as one of them answered, "For trespassing". He's also known for being the comedian who brought rumors of Bill Cosby's alleged sexual misconduct to a wider audience.

"No, you're making it harder", Buress said.
