One officer said, "trespassing", but he wasn't charged with that. The charges were disorderly intoxication according to a tweet from the Miami Police Department. The full video lasts for only a few minutes and shows an already-cuffed Buress refusing to get into the auto.

"Once outside, the defendant stood by the front gate and continued yelling profanities", the officer's report says.

"Am I under arrest?" "Explain what I'm detained for?"

After about several minutes of back-and-forth, Buress eventually had to be forced into the vehicle by one of the officers.

In response, the comic tells the cops they're "goofy as f*ck, man", "Y'all know you're goofy as f*ck, right?"

Burress eventually refused to get into the police auto after the confrontation went on for several minutes, leading to him being pushed into the police vehicle. "Unless you have probable cause for anything, take the handcuffs off of me, I didn't do anything, I'm not getting in the vehicle".

A police report cited by the Herald said Buress, bearing bloodshot eyes and a strong scent of alcohol, asked an officer to call an Uber for him.

And some users on Twitter immediately began questioning the validity of Buress's arrest.

TMZ reports that Buress' bail was set at $500.

Apart from his successful career as a stand-up comedian and actor, Hannibal became well known for his involvement with the Bill Cosby case.

If you listen closely to the video, Buress does have the last word.

Buress has not commented about the arrest.
