Stand-up comedian and actor Hannibal Buress was arrested last night, and there's a video going around social media documenting his heated exchange with the arresting officers. Miami police say they arrested Buress, 34, at 10:30pm on misdemeanor disorderly intoxication charges in the Wynwood neighborhood, the Miami Herald reports. Wynwood is the site of numerous events related to Art Basel, an annual arts fair that attracts numerous celebrities to the city. In the video a handcuffed Buress can be seen standing against a police car. “Am I under arrest? For what?” Buress yells. “Explain what I’m detained for. What I am detained for?” One of the officers then responds, "Trespassing."

The star of Broad City and Spider-Man Homecoming was booked into the Miami-Dade jail this morning at 1:57am and released on bail just after 6am, People reports. Soon after, a #FreeHannibalBuress hashtag along with the video started appearing on Twitter. TMZ reports that Buress' bail was set at $500. (Read more Hannibal buress stories.)
