The incident took place at N.W. 20th Street and N.W. 2nd Avenue at 10:30 p.m.

Buress approached a police officer, who described the comedian as having "red blood shot eyes and a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage," and asked the officer to call him an Uber, per an arrest report.

After being told by the officer that he couldn't call an Uber, Buress became angry and belligerent.  He was asked to leave the premises but instead Buress walked inside a venue located at 2000 N.W. 2nd Avenue.

Buress was asked again by the officer to leave the premises "due to him being highly intoxicated" and once outside, continued yelling profanities at the officer which led to a crowd gathering, per the report.

According to CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald, Buress was booked into jail at 1:57 a.m. and posted bail just before 6 a.m.

Buress is a popular comedian that has recently appeared in the film "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and new HBO comedy "Crashing."

A video posted on YouTube appears to show part of the arrest.
