Hannibal Buress Arrested After Confrontation With Police

Hannibal Buress Arrested After Confrontation With Police

Buress, 34, was booked into a Miami-Dade jail at 1:57 a.m. and posted bail just before 6 a.m., records show.

Buress refused to get in the police vehicle, forcing the arresting officers to push him inside the patrol unit.

'Am I under arrest?

A video of Buress's arrest quickly made the rounds on social media, and showed the comedian handcuffed and asking officers why he was being detained.

'Explain what I'm detained for. And though it was later revealed that Buress was actually arrested for disorderly intoxication, the cops apparently told him he was being arrested for trespassing when he asked, to which one of the bystanders responded, "Who's pressing charges on the trespass?" Soon after, a #FreeHannibalBuress hashtag along with the video started appearing on Twitter. Miami is playing host to celebrities from all over the globe for Art Basel-related parties.
