    A man and woman who shouted expletives at an Art Basel event in Miami Beach were arrested Sunday, police said.

    They were heard yelling "f--- Art Basel, f--- all you rich people," the arrest reports said. At one point, Sherrard tried to pull a "prosthetic penis sex toy" out of his pants, the reports said.

    Kalan Sherrard, 27, and Maria Valenzuela, 20, were both arrested on disorderly conduct and resisting an officer without violence charges, according to arrest reports released Monday.

    Sherrard and Valenzuela were booked into jail and later released. It was unknown if they have attorneys.
