Chicago comic Hannibal Buress was arrested in Miami for disorderly intoxication.

According to TMZ, he was booked into a Miami-Dade jail around 2 a.m. and was released around 6 a.m. after posting a $500 bond. The video below shows Buress handcuffed and challenging the Miami cops to justify what probable cause they have to arrest him. At the start of the two-and-a-half minute clip, the comedian can be heard shouting, "Am I under arrest? For what?" he says in the video. What I am detained for?'

At first, one officer responds that Buress was trespassing, but later also mentions "disorderly intoxication".

Trump lawyer: Deutsche Bank has not received subpoena for Trump records
After a string of bankruptcies and broken promises, pretty much every other major bank stopped lending Trump money some years ago. In June, the German bank rejected a demand by Democrats to provide details of the President's finances, citing privacy laws.


The video also shows Buress repeatedly asking the arresting officers what probable cause they had for cuffing him, though they remain quiet before eventually pushing him into the police auto. Take the handcuffs off of me, I didn't do anything.

According to the paper, Buress asked officers why he was being arrested. "For what?" Buress yells.

Apart from his successful career as a stand-up comedian and actor, Hannibal became well known for his involvement with the Bill Cosby case. Hannibal - who stars in the Spider-Man: Homecoming film - said the police are "making it harder" and he's just "chilling".
