• Tiffany Haddish arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence
• This is the second arrest for Haddish under similar circumstances
• Haddish was previously arrested in Georgia for a similar incident
Here is what happened:
Tiffany Haddish has been arrested. The 43-year-old was briefly taken into police custody on suspicion of driving under the influence after Beverly Hills police responded to a well-being check. According to local outlet KTLA-TV, police found Haddish asleep in her car with the engine still running. The Haunted Mansion actress had performed at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood the night before. E! News has reached out to a rep for Haddish as well as local authorities for comment and has not yet heard back. This is the second time the stand-up comedian has been arrested under similar circumstances. In January 2022, Haddish was arrested in Georgia after officers responded to a 911 call about a “driver asleep at the wheel.”
Shortly after the arrest, the Night School star addressed the matter during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “I can say this, Jimmy…I’ve been praying to God to send me a new man,” Haddish quipped during her January appearance. “A good man. And God went ahead and sent me four—in uniform.” She continued, “And now I got a really great lawyer, and we’re going to work it out. I’ve got to get my asking of things to God a little better!”
In addition to the arrest in Beverly Hills, Haddish has had previous legal trouble when she was arrested in Georgia under similar circumstances. “While en route, an officer observed a vehicle matching the description and ultimately conducted a traffic stop as the vehicle pulled into the yard of a residence,” said Assistant Chief of Police Matt Myers. Haddish was later transported to the Fayette County Jail where she made bail and was released from jail.
