Actor and comedian Tiffany Haddish has been arrested and charged with driving under the influence, authorities said.

Haddish was detained after Peachtree City Police got a call about 2.30am on Friday regarding a driver asleep at the wheel on a highway, assistant police chief Matt Myers said in a news release.

An officer saw a vehicle matching the caller’s description and stopped Haddish as she pulled into the yard of a residence, Mr Myers said.

A spokesman for Haddish did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.
