MTV reality star Brandon Swift -- who starred on "Real World: St. Thomas" -- was arrested in Philadelphia last night ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ has obtained footage of the arrest -- which shows 23-year-old Swift in a very heated standoff with police outside of the Draught Horse Pub at the Temple University campus.

It's unclear what initiated the confrontation -- but Swift makes it clear, he has no intention of cooperating with the cops.

As one plainclothes officer moves in to place Swift under arrest, the reality star resists ... saying, "Don't touch me ... everybody please record it ... I'm about to get beat up by a cop."

Several officers immediately rush in and subdue Swift ...and march him down the street. It's unclear from the video where Swift was taken.

After the incident, Brandon took to Facebook to vent ... saying, "Always voice your opinion even if its the Police! #F*CK Select Members of Temple Police...Im not scacred of yall."

He added, "I will always say what I gotta say to you dirty filthy liars AND I hope this gets back to yall! #MiddleFingersUp! ...Sorry for the rant all but it was necessary."

Attempts to reach Swift were unsuccessful.

If the cops going to beat you they're going to beat you in front of everyone. They're not like the old school cops where they take you behind the alley way and beat the living crap out of you with their batons.

Somebody needs to teach a "dealing with the cops " course. It's simple, just cooperate, and do what they say. Get a lawyer if you are booked and don't say anything until you meet with your lawyer. Anything else is stupid and you'll get mores charges not mention, hurt badly. They will win the first round every time, limit your loses and if you are wronged, get them in court later.

i've learned that brandon has been approached by the disney channel with an offer to star in the next episode of planet of the apes due to begin produciton in 2013. my sources tell me that he has been offered the role of Habilis, leader of a tribe of 3 million fugitive retarded apelike hominids who've travelled forward in time from the neanderthal period to the present day in an effort to prove darwins theories on the origins of the species as well as claim police brutality whenever their efforts meet the slightest resistance.

I thought people stopped watching the Real World like 15 years ago. At least, they should have.
