Comedian-actor Tiffany Haddish was arrested early Friday in Peachtree City after she was reportedly spotted asleep behind the wheel.

Police charged the 42-year-old “She Ready” comic with DUI and improper stopping on a roadway.

According to an arrest report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, police suspected Haddish of being under the influence of marijuana.

The incident began around 2:30 a.m. when someone reported a driver asleep at the wheel on Ga. 74 near Ga. 54, the report stated. Officers were dispatched to the area for a welfare check, but the vehicle was no longer there.

Fayette County 911 dispatchers issued a be-on-the-lookout alert for the 2021 Ford Explorer in which Haddish was spotted. An officer saw the SUV as it pulled into the yard of a residence and conducted a traffic stop.

Officers subsequently took Haddish into custody and she was booked into the Fayette County Jail in Fayetteville.

According to TMZ, Haddish was released after she posted $1,666 around 6:30 a.m.

Spokespeople for Haddish did not immediately respond to requests for comment, according to other media outlets. The Emmy and Grammy award-winning performer has hosted “Saturday Night Live” and has appeared in several films, including “Girl Trip.”

According to media reports, Haddish was in metro Atlanta filming “Haunted Mansion,” Disney’s re-adaptation of a 2003 horror comedy that’s set to be released later this year.
