UPDATE: Following Hannibal Buress' December arrest in Miami for disorderly intoxication, the charge has officially been dropped, E! News can confirm. According to court documents obtained by E! News, the state's attorney found the disorderly intoxication charge could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
"In Florida, it's protected First Amendment speech to ask a police officer to call you an Uber. It's not a crime. Also, when coming from a professional comedian, it's actually quite funny," Brian Bieber, Hannibal's attorney, to E! News. "Unfortunately for Hannibal, the arresting officer didn't think so, however we are pleased that the prosecutors carefully reviewed the facts and agreed to dismiss the case in its entirety."
Meanwhile, the actor later took to Twitter to confirm the news himself. As he wrote to fans, "Dismissed."
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.
