Comedian Hannibal Buress arrested for disorderly intoxication

Hannibal Buress had a rough Saturday night.

As Page Six reports, the stand-up was arrested on disorderly intoxication charges and booked into a Miami jail on Saturday night.

According to TMZ, who obtained Buress’ arrest affidavit, the incident began when the seemingly intoxicated stand-up approached a Miami police officer asking him to call him an Uber home. The officer refused, which he says caused Buress to become belligerent.

The officer then reported Buress, who has made a name for himself through comedy specials and roles on “Broad City” and the “Eric Andre Show, went inside a bar. The officer told Buress he was too drunk and asked him to leave the bar. Outside, the officer said, the comedian shouted profanities at the cop and refused to leave.

A video uploaded to YouTube documents what ensued.

In the clip, Buress can be seen handcuffed and leaning against a squad car, repeatedly asking for the cause of his detention. The arresting officer accused him of trepassing, to which Buress  retorts “You don’t have probable cause for anything and you look hella stupid right now. You know y’all are goofy as f–k.” Despite the cops’ claims on camera, Buress was not booked for trespassing.

Buress posted a $500 bail just before dawn on Sunday and was released.

‘GIRLS’ writer retracts

Attorneys for Murray Miller, the “Girls” writer who was accused of sexual assault, no longer claim that the alleged victim demanded money from him.

“Jem and the Holograms” star Aurora Perrineau accused Miller of raping her in 2012, when she was 17 years old.

Miller denied the allegations and his lawyers claimed that Perrineau “sought substantial monetary damages from him.”

The attorneys, Donald Walerstein and Matthew Walerstein, have now retracted that claim.

“In a previous statement to the media, we stated that Ms. Perrineau sought substantial monetary damages from our client Murray Miller. Neither Ms. Perrineau nor her attorney have ever made a demand for money,” they said in a statement to Variety.

“Our previous above statement was incorrect and the result of a good-faith misunderstanding.”

“Girls” creator Lena Dunham and showrunner Jenni Konner initially defended Miller. However, after taking heat for contradicting prior statements about believing the stories of women who are assaulted, Dunham apologized for rushing to Miller’s defense.
