"I didn't do anything and I'm not getting into your vehicle". Additionally, the actor refused to enter the police vehicle on his own volition, so the officials had to force him inside. In fact, the comic had to be physically pushed into the back of a cruiser following a verbal altercation where Buress loudly demanded to know why he was being detained.

The video was originally posted by Gabe Martinez, aka @eyehategabe, on Twitter.

According to the paper, Buress asked officers why he was being arrested.

The arrest report for Buress wasn't available Sunday and it's unclear what led to his arrest.

However, Miami Beach is hosting the Art Basel worldwide art fair this weekend, which draws celebrities from around the world. Once outside, Buress continued yelling profanities at the officer, causing a crowd to gather. The officer said he asked Buress to leave five times before putting him in handcuffs. "For what?" Buress yells in the video.

Gujarat Election, BJP and Mani Shankar Aiyar Comment
However, Congress also dared BJP and Modi even after dissociating itself from Aiyar's comment. I do not appreciate the tone and language used by Mr Mani Shankar Aiyer to address the PM.

The officer says Hannibal approached him with blood shot eyes and a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath, and then asked him to call him an Uber. "Especially during #ArtBasel", Corben tweeted Sunday morning. One officer said, "trespassing", but he wasn't charged with that. "Nobody called police or complained about him".

Hannibal Buress seemed like he was trying to do the right thing before getting busted for disorderly intoxication.

After a standup routine in 2014, Buress was widely credited with bringing renewed attention to charges of sexual assault against Bill Cosby. This year he was featured in the films "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and "Baywatch".

Buress has not commented about the arrest.
