The confrontation allegedly started after the comedian approached one of the cops with bloodshot eyes and a strong odor of alcohol and asked him to call an Uber, according to TMZ.
A Herald reporter was told by Miami Police that arrest reports are only released during regular business hours. "For what?" Buress yells in the video. The officer went inside to get Buress because he felt the comedian was too drunk to stay around. According to the officer's affidavit, Buress continued to "hurl profanities" at him and caused a crowd to form.
The cop says he asked him to leave 5 times before cuffing him.
Sunday afternoon Buress tweeted a gif of himself from the Adult Swim program "The Eric Andre Show" in an apparent response to the arrest.
In addition to his appearances on stage, the comedian has starred as an actor in "Neighbors", "Baywatch" and "Spider-Man: Homecoming".
