Intoxication led to arrest! 

The stand-up comic Hannibal Buress got arrested on Saturday night around 10:30 p.m in Miami, Florida, for disorderly intoxication, after having an encounter with a police officer.

A few moments later, a video of Hannibal getting detained went viral on Twitter, where Bruess yells,

“Am I under arrest? For what? Explain what I’m detained for. What I am detained for?”

Miami Police Department confirmed the arrest by replying to the tweet,

As per 'Miami Herald,' Buress got booked into Miami-Dade jail on the charges of disorderly intoxication at 1:57 a.m. in the Wynwood Arts District, which is hosting umpteen Art Basel-related events.

Moreover, The Herald reported that the incident arose when Buress, bearing a strong scent of alcohol and bloodshot eyes, requested a police officer standing at Northwest Second Avenue and 20th Terrace to call him an Uber.

The officer denied his request, following which Hannibal entered a venue at 2000 NW Second Ave, and the officer followed him with an assumption that he was very intoxicated to stay around.

The officer's report stated,

“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.”

According to the Miami County Jail, Hannibal was released Sunday on cash bond after posting a bail before 6 a.m.

Hannibal, who is a famed comedian and an actor, has a tour lined up from 29th of December 2017 until January 12, 2018.
