Comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish was taken into custody early on Friday morning and is accused of driving while intoxicated after falling asleep behind the wheel, according to several media sources.
According to the Beverly Hills Police Department, Haddish was taken into custody following their arrival at the scene of a stopped car on Beverly Drive at 5:45 a.m.
Haddish was found when authorities arrived at the incident, according to CNN, and they brought her into custody. She was soon freed after her bond was posted. The comic has not yet commented on the risky error, but video from her detention shows her being led in handcuffs by the coming police, looking, naturally, upset.
The previous evening, Haddish - who is well-known for her comedic and acting roles - performed at The Laugh Factory in West Hollywood as part of the club's 43rd annual free Thanksgiving feast for the local community.
Haddish's most recent legal issues stem from her arrest in Georgia in January 2022 for allegedly driving under the influence and stopping improperly on a public route. Authorities told PEOPLEat the time that Peachtree City police officers responded to a 911 call at around 2:30 a.m. regarding a driver who had allegedly fallen asleep behind the wheel on Highway 74. After locating the car, they pulled over and initiated a traffic stop.
Authorities informed the source that Ms. Tiffany Haddish was arrested for driving under the influence after a thorough investigation.

On December 4, Haddish is expected to face trial for the previous DUI charge. In another recent story, Haddish faced criticism for her remarks made in a March 2022 interview with a reporter.
The reporter was clearly unhappy with the actress's confrontational demeanor when she insisted on changing her outfit prior to the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party. Haddish responded by snidely gloating about how much superior she was to the reporter and making fun of her lack of shoes. The actress remarked in a sly manner:
This is what success looks like.- Tiffany Haddish
Later, in April 2022, while hosting The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she made light of her legal run-in.

Haddish continued, displaying her mugshot and saying:
