The Beverly Hills Police Department responded to a call at 5:45 a.m.
PST on Friday, leading to Haddish's arrest shortly thereafter. As reported by TMZ, Haddish was allegedly found asleep in her parked vehicle with the engine running, though no accident was involved. CNN, after reaching out to Haddish's representatives for comment, has yet to receive a response.
This arrest comes on the heels of Haddish's performance at The Laugh Factory in West Hollywood, where she appeared on Thursday night for the comedy club’s 43rd annual free Thanksgiving feast for the community.
A Troubling History
Notably, this is not the first time Haddish has faced legal issues related to driving under the influence.
In 2022, she was arrested in Peachtree City, Georgia, under similar circumstances – falling asleep at the wheel. Addressing this incident during an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Haddish quipped about her arrest and the consequences that followed.
She joked about praying for a man and getting four in uniform, showing her characteristic humor even in the face of adversity. “I got a really great lawyer and we’re gonna work it out. And I’ve got to get my asking of things to God a little better,” she added, indicating her intention to resolve the legal issues effectively.
Best known for her stand-up comedy and her performance in the hit film “Girls Trip,” Haddish has been a prominent figure in the entertainment industry. Her repeated run-ins with the law, especially regarding DUI charges, cast a shadow over her successful career and public image.
Fans and observers alike hope that this latest incident will be a wake-up call, leading to more positive life choices and a return to the form that has made her one of the most beloved comedians of her generation.
