Comedian Hannibal Buress arrested on disorderly conduct charges

Comedian Hannibal Buress was arrested late Saturday in Wynwood, according to the Miami Police Department's Twitter account.

The hashtag #freeHannibalBuress started trending on Twitter after the arrest.

The Miami Police Department said Buress was arrested about 10:30 p.m. on a charge of disorderly intoxication, but court records later listed the misdemeanor charge as disorderly conduct.

He was released on bond early Sunday.

A police source told Local 10 that Buress did not show any signs of intoxication and was cooperative.

A cell phone video posted on Twitter by user @eyehatgabe shows Buress with his hands behind his back against a patrol car as two officers question him. 

"I am under arrest? For what? ... Explain what I'm detained for," he asks two police officers in the video.

"For tresspassing," one of the officers says in the video.

A standup comedian, Buress is frequent guest on late-night talk show such as the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. He has appeared in several TV shows and movies including Broad City and Spider-Man: Homecoming. 

After a standup routine in 2014, Buress was widely credited with bringing renewed attention to charges of sexual assault against Bill Cosby.
