'What I am detained for?' Comedian Hannibal Buress arrested in Miami

Comedian Hannibal Buress found himself in a not-so-amusing situation when he was arrested in Miami after a confrontation with police. "What am I detained for?" he says in the video. Bystanders can be heard asking what property Buress is being trespassed from and who called the police on him. "You don't have probable cause for anything, and you're looking hella stupid right now". "I'm not getting in your vehicle". Eventually, an officer forces Buress into the auto.

Hannibal Buress is known as an actor and comedian who rarely shies away from making pointed, often politicized remarks in his live stand-up routine.

Buress, 34, was booked into a Miami-Dade jail at 1:57 a.m. and posted bail just before 6 a.m., records show. The Herald reports that the arrest took place at Northwest Second Avenue and 20th Street, in Wynwood. "They used to regularly release a-forms on weekends", the reporter, David Ovalle, wrote on Twitter. When the officer declined, Buress went into a venue and the officer followed him, feeling he was too intoxicated to remain. "I, then again, asked him to leave the area about five times".

According to the Miami Herald, a video has begun circulating online of Buress in a heated argument with the Miami police.

The officers tell Buress he is suspected of trespassing, but no trespassing charges were filed according to the Daily Mail. The tweet read: "Hello Billy, Mr. Buress was arrested for disorderly intoxication, on December 9, 2017, at approximately 10:30 p.m".
