As footage of the arrest shows, the stand-up comedian repeatedly asked why he was being arrested, and officers appear to say trespassing.
"Am I under arrest? For what?" Buress told officers. "Explain what I'm detained for. What I am detained for?"
It is unclear what led up to the confrontation with officers.
Buress is best known as a comic, but he's appeared in numerous TV and film projects. On TV, he can be seen on The Eric Andre Show and Broad City. In film, he's appeared in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Baywatch, The Secret Life of Pets and The Disaster Artist.
