Hannibal Buress

Miami Police

Hannibal Buress was not laughing Saturday night. 

The stand-up comic was arrested in Miami for disorderly intoxication around 10:30 p.m., the Miami police department confirmed. Per the Miami County Jail, the Disaster Artist actor was released Sunday on cash bond. 

According to video footage online, the star was captured questioning the police officers while standing up against a cop car, asking why he was being detained. 

According to TMZ, the arresting officer claimed in the arrest affidavit that the star's eyes were bloodshot and his breath smelled of alcohol. The officer also reportedly claimed that Buress had approached him and asked him to call an Uber, which the officer said he refused. The actor allegedly became "angry" and "belligerent," per TMZ's account of the police report, which E! has not seen. 

Buress allegedly went into a bar, which the officer asked him to leave because he was drunk. According to the report, the officer reportedly claimed he asked the actor to leave multiple times before making the arrest. 

E! News has reached out to Buress' camp for additional comment.
