Hannibal Buress, who made his celeb bones by bringing Bill Cosby’s predatory behavior to light, was locked up in Miami for disorderly intoxication Saturday.


A video of his arrest shows the 34-year-old being handcuffed around 10:30 p.m. on a busy intersection in Miami, flush with attendees from all over the world for the annual Art Basel art festival.

A belligerent Buress can be heard screaming, “Am I under arrest? For what?Explain what I’m detained for. What I am detained for?”


“For trespassing,” an officer replies.

“You know y’all goofy as fuck,” Buress says repeatedly, adding that cops “don’t have probable cause for anything.”

Interestingly, Buress was not booked for “trespassing” at all.

The Miami Herald reports that Buress was booked into a Miami-Dade jail at 1:57 a.m. and posted bail just before 6 a.m.
