Comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish was arrested early Friday morning by Beverly Hills police on suspicion of driving under the influence. The 43-year-old performer was found by officers around 5:45 a.m. slumped over the wheel of her car, which was stopped on Beverly Drive north of Dayton Way. The vehicle’s engine was reportedly still running at the time.
Authorities from the Beverly Hills Police Department confirmed Haddish’s arrest, stating she was being booked on suspicion of DUI. TMZ, which released a video showing Haddish handcuffed and being placed into the backseat of a police cruiser, reported that the comedian was not involved in an accident prior to her arrest.
Haddish had performed at The Laugh Factory in West Hollywood on Thursday evening, participating in the club’s 43rd annual free Thanksgiving feast for the community. The incident in Beverly Hills follows a similar occurrence last year, where Haddish was arrested in Atlanta. In that incident, Peachtree City police charged her with DUI and improper stopping on a roadway after she was found asleep at the wheel. A trial for the Atlanta charges is scheduled for next month.
Tiffany Haddish, known for her roles in films such as “Girls Trip,” “Night School,” and “Like a Boss,” has yet to make a public statement regarding the arrest. Representatives for Haddish and police officials have also not provided additional comments.
