Miami police arrested stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress for disorderly intoxication Saturday night.
Buress, 34, was arrested at 10:30 p.m. Saturday night and was booked into the Miami-Dade jail at 1:57 a.m. He posted $500 bail at 6 a.m. Sunday morning, according to a report by PEOPLE.
A video showing the comedian being arrested was posted to social media. Buress is seen in the video handcuffed, shouting at two officers trying to put him into the patrol car. He refuses to get into the vehicle and repeatedly asks the officers what he is under arrest for.
“Am I under arrest? For what? Explain what I’m detained for. What I am detained for?”
The video shows police telling the comedian that he is under arrest for trespassing. Later, the police department said on Twitter that Buress was booked on a charge of disorderly intoxication.

According to the Miami Herald, the arrest report said Buress asked an officer standing on a street corner to call an Uber for him. The comedian grew “angry and belligerent,” according to the report, when the officer would not do so. The officer asked Buress to leave, but he went inside a nearby bar instead. The officer believed the comedian was too drunk to be out so he retrieved Buress from the bar, and Buress reportedly started yelling at him.
“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.”
