Comedian Hannibal Buress was arrested Saturday night in Miami, Fla. The Miami Police Department confirmed the news in a tweet.
According to the report TMZ got their hands on, Hannibal allegedly attempted to get an Uber ride home. The report explained that the Miami officer was approached by the comedian with “bloodshot eyes and a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath.” He asked the officer to call the car service for him, but the officer refused. The officer claims this caused Buress to become irate before walking into a bar.
The cop then asked the “Broad City” actor to leave the party scene, given he was too drunk. One thing led to another, bringing a crowd around them. When the cop warned him to leave “5 times,” Buress ended up in cuffs. Video footage from onlookers shows him yelling at officers questioning why he was being detained. Matters didn’t get better when Buress said, “You know you goofy as f***, right?” before calling another cop “salty” and “stupid.”
Even though the actor ended up getting arrested for disorderly intoxication and spending $500 on bond, at least it’s safe to say he initially tried to take the responsible route getting home.
