Funnyman Hannibal Buress found himself in trouble when he was arrested in Wynwood, Miami on a disorderly intoxication charge after a confrontation with police.
A video made the rounds on social media that show Buress handcuffed against a patrol car and talking to the police officers.
“Am I under arrest? For what?” Buress said in the video. “Explain what I’m detained for. What I am detained for?”
“For trespassing,” a policeman replies.
“You know y’all goofy as f—,” Buress appears to respond, saying cops “don’t have probable cause for anything.”
“No, you’re making it harder, I’m chillin,'” the comedian told the officers at one point as they tried to calm him down. Witnesses could be overheard on the video supporting the comedian and telling cops not to “hurt” him. The hashtag #FreeHannibalBuress trended on social media.
Later on, the Miami Police Department shared on twitter that Buress “was arrested for disorderly intoxication, on December 9, 2017, at approximately 10:30 p.m.”
The police report indicated that the “Broad City” actor, bearing bloodshot eyes and a strong scent of alcohol, asked a policeman standing at the corner of Northwest Second Avenue and 20th Terrace to call an Uber for him. When the officer rejected him, Buress attitude turned “angry and belligerent.”
The officer told Buress to leave, according to the report, but he instead went inside to get Buress because he felt the funnyman was too inebriated to stay on the premises.
“Once outside, the defendant stood by the front gate and continued yelling profanities,” the report says. “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.”
Buress was later released after paying a $500 bond.
The comedian is known for his many standup-comedy specials, the show “Broad City” and as an actor in films such as “Neighbors”, “Spiderman Homecoming” and “Baywatch.” But Buress fame grew after he talked on stage about rumors of sexual abuse by comedian Bill Cosby, who was later accused publicly by dozens of women.
