Chicago comedian Hannibal Buress was arrested Saturday night in Miami after a confrontation with a police officer. "First @MiamiPD said they arrested @HannibalBuress for 'trespassing.' Now they say 'disorderly intoxication.' Sounds more like 'being a loud black guy" to me".
A police source told Local 10 that Buress did not show any signs of intoxication and was cooperative.
Video footage which we have for you below shows Hannibal arguing with the police while the officers push him up against the vehicle and make the arrest. In the video, he can heard asking the officers to explain what he was being detained for.
"Am I under arrest?" After one cop accuses him of being hard, Buress can be heard laughing and declaring, "He's just salty because I roasted his ass".
The comedian was not charged with trespassing.
Buress then says to the officer, "you're goofy as f*ck".

"No, I'm not getting in your auto", he adds after a short exchange, during which the officer can be heard telling him he is being arrested for trespassing. 'You don't have probable cause for anything and you're hella stupid right now'.
