Hannibal Buress found himself in cuffs on Saturday night in Miami, and in the harsh daylight, different reports are swirling on how the situation developed.
The Miami New Times points toward initial reports that the comedian attracted law enforcement’s attentions for “trespassing.” Yet as that outlet later revealed and the local NBC affiliate confirmed, Buress’ actual booking report reflects an arrest for disorderly intoxication.
It remains unclear exactly what circumstances led to Buress being detained against a Miami PD vehicle by two cops, and he appeared to be puzzled as well.
Per the above bystander-recorded video footage, Buress demands to know what probable cause the police have to arrest him. “Am I under arrest? For what?” he asks “Explain what I’m detained for?” The full video lasts for only a few minutes and shows an already-cuffed Buress refusing to get into the car. After one cop accuses him of being difficult, Buress can be heard laughing and declaring, “He’s just salty because I roasted his ass.”
This video shows the famous comedian after he was cuffed at around 2 AM Sunday, challenging Miami cops to justify the detention, repeatedly asking them to explain what probable cause they had.
Buress refused to get in the police car and after a standoff that lasted several minutes he was pushed inside the patrol unit.
Cops told him he was arrested for trespassing but a jail official said that the arrest was for “disorderly intoxication.”
Buress was released at around 6 AM after posting a $500 bond.
Do you think that he deserve this?
