While enjoying various Art Basel-related events in Wynwood, Miami Saturday (Dec. 9), popular comedian Hannibal Buress was arrested for disorderly intoxication.
Consequently, the charge stemmed from the 34-year-old “becoming angry and belligerent,” after police declined to call him an Uber.
Additionally, a video circulated on social media showing Buress in cuffs against a Miami patrol car. speaking with officers around 10:30 p.m. local time.
Furthermore, in the video, he asks:
“Am I under arrest? For what? Explain what I’m detained for? What I am detained for?”
In response, an officer replies, “For trespassing.”
In addition, Buress replied:
“You know y’all goofy as f–k. [Y’all] do’t have probable cause for anything.”
While the Miami police officer mentioned trespassing, once the report surfaced they did not charge him with trespassing.
Additionally, due to his bloodshot eyes and strong scent of alcohol, an officer told the comedian to leave, but instead he went inside a venue — which led to the officer detaining him.
Furthermore, the report details:
“Once inside, 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.”
Moreover, around 6 a.m. on Sunday, Buress was released on a $500 bond.
