The full video lasts for only a few minutes and shows an already-cuffed Buress refusing to get into the auto. With Hannibal Buress funnyman demanding an answer from cops as to why he was being arrested while leaning against a police vehicle and yelling, "Am I under arrest?" When the video begins, Buress is already cuffed and can be heard asking officers repeatedly if he was under arrest and what the charge was. "For what?. Explain what I'm detained for", he asks two police officers in the video. "What I am detained for?" The cops on the scene told Buress he was under arrest for "trespassing", but an MPD spokesperson and court records show he was actually booked on disorderly intoxication charges. "Take the handcuffs off of me, I didn't do anything, I'm not getting in your auto", he said.

The video, which went viral last night and sparked the #FreeHannibalBuress tag, raises some unanswered questions for MPD. He was later released after paying a $500 bond. The officer said Buress then went into a bar, and the officer asked him to leave, saying he was too drunk.

The police responded via Twitter after a video was posted to social media that appeared to show Buress getting arrested.

"Once outside, the defendant stood by the front gate and continued yelling profanities", the officers report says. A jail official told TMZ the arrest was over 'disorderly intoxication'.
