"Not long after, a Twitter hashtag began titled, "#FreeHannibalBuress". One officer appears to tell him he's being charged with trespassing, which doesn't match the Miami Police Department's official charge on the arrest record.

It's not clear what Buress was in Miami for, but the Herald reports that the actor was arrested around 10:30 p.m. near Wynwood, which is now hosting Miami Art Basel-related events. "For what?" the 34-year-old yelled in the video.

There's been no word so far on whether or not Buress will pursue further legal action against the officer or officers who engaged in the verbal altercation with him. He's won the George Polk Award and was a finalist for the Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting.

'Am I under arrest? For what?" He then yells to the officers, "Explain what I'm detained for.

The video also shows Buress repeatedly asking the arresting officers what probable cause they had for cuffing him, though they remain quiet before eventually pushing him into the police auto. 'You don't have probable cause for anything and you're hella stupid right now'. Buress was arrested around 10:30 p.m. Saturday night in the neighborhood of Wynwood, which is now hosting events related to the global art festival Art Basel.

The confrontation allegedly started after the comedian approached one of the cops with bloodshot eyes and a strong odor of alcohol and asked him to call an Uber, according to TMZ.

The officers tell Buress he is suspected of trespassing, but no trespassing charges were filed according to the Daily Mail.

The cop says he asked him to leave 5 times before cuffing him.

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

Sunday afternoon Buress tweeted a gif of himself from the Adult Swim program "The Eric Andre Show" in an apparent response to the arrest.
