Update: Tiffany Haddish Officially Charged w/ DUI After Falling Asleep Behind The Wheel For The Second Time
Update: (Dec. 13, 2023): According to reports, Tiffany Haddish has officially been hit with her second DUI in less than two years.
As previously reported, in November the actress was found asleep in the driver’s seat of her vehicle following a night of partying in Beverly Hills. When Haddish was discovered the car was still running in the middle of the road as she was allegedly slumped over behind the steering wheel. She was booked for DUI and improper stopping on a roadway. Reportedly, at the time of the incident, she had a .08% BAC.
Today (Dec. 13), following a review by the L.A. District Attorney’s Office, Haddish was formally charged. Unfortunately for the entertainer, this isn’t her first time driving while under the influence. In January of last year, she was arrested in Georgia for the same thing.
The judge of the Georgia case recently banned Haddish from drinking and taking drugs. She must also submit to random drug tests for the time being.

Unfortunately, this is the second DUI for the jokester in less than two years. If you recall, the “Night School” star was detained back in January 2022 under nearly the exact same circumstances. At the time, authorities responded to a call about an individual seemingly asleep behind the wheel of a car and found Haddish pulling into an Atlanta neighborhood. She was reportedly booked by Peachtree City PD and given a DUI citation.
As far as what led to her recent incident, Haddish reportedly performed at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood on the night of their 43rd annual free Thanksgiving feast. According to her social media account, it seems she may have gone out to celebrate with friends after. The actress posted a live video to her Instagram account, capturing the moment she was denied entry into the Habesha Club in Inglewood.
Within a few moments, however, she gets in before asking someone to point her in the direction of the bar. Haddish was reportedly charged with a DUI and improper stopping on a roadway and has a court date scheduled for December 4th.
