Actor and comedian Hannibal Buress was arrested in Miami and charged with “disorderly intoxication” late Saturday night (Dec. 9).

According to police records obtained by The Miami Herald, Buress was booked into a Miami-Dade jail at 1:57 a.m. and posted bail around 6 a.m.

In cell phone footage of the encounter, Buress can be seen refusing to get into a Miami police car while handcuffed. “Am I under arrest? For what?” he says in the video. “Explain what I’m detained for. What am I detained for?”

At first, one officer responds that Buress was trespassing, but later also mentions “disorderly intoxication.” Eventually, an officer forces Buress into the car.
