Soon after, a #FreeHannibalBuress hashtag along with the video started appearing on Twitter. Buress was arrested around 10:30 p.m. Saturday night in the neighborhood of Wynwood, which is now hosting events related to the worldwide art festival Art Basel.

A popular stand-up comedian was handcuffed early Sunday in Miami and video of his arrest is going viral. Eventually, an officer forces Buress into the auto.

Miami Herald reporter David Orvalle, tweeted out the police report which echoes the information in Slater's tweet. "Am I under arrest?" he asks the officers. "For what?" he asks "Explain what I'm detained for?" "What am I detained for?"

Hello Billy, Mr. Buress was arrested for disorderly intoxication, on December 9, 2017, at approximately 10:30 p.m. Seconds later, he called out "Who called you?"

In a video posted online, Buress can be seen in handcuffs arguing with officers. "I know you're goofy as f*ck right now". "Take the handcuffs off of me, I didn't do anything, I'm not getting in your vehicle", he said. An officer ultimately forces him into the back of the auto.

According to CBS Miami's news partner the Miami Herald, Buress was booked into jail at 1:57 a.m. and posted bail just before 6 a.m.

The cops responded with "trespassing" and the standoff continued as another man can be heard asking the cops what property was Buress trespassing on and who called 911 on him.
