Comedian Hannibal Buress arrested in Miami on Sunday

Posted December 11, 2017

It's not clear exactly what he was doing in Miami last night, but a cell phone video shows how his night ended: Handcuffed against a Miami police vehicle and demanding to know why he's under arrest.

Buress posted bail shortly before 6 a.m. on Sunday morning.

A video of the collar posted to YouTube shows the yuckster handcuffed and leaning against a squad vehicle as he tries to convince cops not to haul him in. He screams at the officers, "Am I under arrest?"

Officers accuse him of trespassing, but refuse to say where he was trespassing or who is pressing charges against him, video shows.

'Explain what I'm detained for.

Cathay Pacific's crew reported seeing the weapon re-enter the Earth's atmosphere, while Korean Air said its pilots "saw a flash". Cathay is said to be planning to offer satellite phones to its crew on flights between South Korea and Hong Kong.

"What am I detained for?" Eventually, an officer forces Buress into the auto. The hashtag #FreeHannibalBuress later trended on Twitter. Miami is playing host to celebrities from all over the globe for Art Basel-related parties. Until Sunday afternoon, Miami police declined to release the arrest report, saying a public-records request had to be made "during regular business hours".

The officer told Buress to leave, the report said, but he instead went inside a venue at 2000 NW Second Ave. For what?' Buress yells in the video, handcuffed and leaning against a patrol vehicle.

Buress is credited with helping to take down pervy comedian Bill Cosby after a 2014 bit calling the elder comedian racist renewed scrutiny over long-standing allegations that Cosby had drugged and raped women.

In response to a tweeted inquiry from documentary film director Billy Corben, the Miami PD acknowledged that Buress was arrested at around 10:30 pm EST.

The comedian has starred in numerous standup-comedy specials, the show "Broad City" and as an actor in movies such as "Spiderman Homecoming" and "Baywatch".
