Prior to the confirmation, a video of Buress getting arrested went viral on social media. The video saw the funnyman, who is known for his roles on "Broad City" and "Eric Andre Show", being handcuffed against a Miami patrol car. He was seen being involved in a heated argument with two police officers. "Explain what I'm detained for. What I am detained for?" Buress yelled at the cops, to which an officer replied, "For trespassing."
Several onlookers, meanwhile, tried to defend the stand-up comedian. "Yo, don't hurt my man," one person could be heard shouting. "Free Hannibal Buress," another hollered.
However, the comedian, who starred in "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and "Baywatch", was not charged with trespassing. Buress was booked in the Wynwood Arts District, which is hosting Art Basel-related events and drawing celebrities from around the globe, on a disorderly intoxication charge at 1:57 A.M., according to The Miami Herald.
The site further stated that the arrest came down when bloodshot-eyed Buress, bearing a strong scent of alcohol, asked an officer to call an Uber for him. The officer refused though, making Buress allegedly "angry and belligerent." The officer asked him to leave, but Buress went inside a venue at 2000 NW Second Ave instead. The officer reportedly followed him inside as he felt that Buress was too intoxicated to stay around.
The officer's report said, "Once outside, the defendant stood by the front gate and continued yelling profanities. I, then again, asked him to leave the area about five times. A crowd began to gather and vehicular traffic slowed as they watched the defendant yelling and being disorderly. Defendant arrested."
TMZ reported that Buress was released at around 6 A.M. after posting a bail of $500.
