Actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish was arrested on Jan. 14 by Peachtree City police on DUI charges after her vehicle was located in a neighborhood off Hip Pocket Road.

Haddish, 42, of Los Angeles, was charged with DUI and improper stopping/signal required, according to Fayette County Jail records.

Officers on Jan. 14 at 2:30 a.m. were dispatched to the area of Ga. Highway 74 and Ga. Highway 54 for a welfare check in reference to a driver being asleep at the wheel.

Fayette County Communications Center aired a BOLO (be on the lookout) for the vehicle, and an officer spotted the vehicle and made contact with the driver, the police report said.

The vehicle Haddish was driving was located at 2:59 a.m. at a residence on Pebblestump Point off Hip Pocket Road, approximately a half-mile from the intersections of Ga. highways 54 and 74, police reports said.  

The driver was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence, according to the report.

The news of Haddish’s arrest got blanket coverage both in the U.S. and in foreign markets.


  1. Aw’ fellers don’t be too hard on the lady…she just got sleepy after smoking a joint after a long day at the studio…too bad she wasn’t in CA where they’d probably given her a pass.
    Question is…is she a repeat offender?
    Who can check that out?

  2. And I am still hearing the SCREAMS, HOWLS, YELLS and SHOUTS of “RAAACCCCIIIISSSSMMMM!!!!” I never even heard of this woman until the initial reports of her arrest were released. I Googled her so as to be ‘enlightened’ with regards to her ‘FAME and FORTUNE’ and I looked at a clip of one of her ‘performances’. Frankly, it is my ‘humble’ opinion that her ‘comedy’ is TOTAL GARBAGE and IRRELEVANT RUBBISH! I hope that this woman gets the help that she so obviously and desperately needs to get and stay sober and drug free! A hearty and much appreciated Thank You to the person who made the initial call to 911 in order to alert them as to the presence of this MENACE out on the roads and to the Peachtree City Police Officer for his or her prompt response in locating and arresting her. A JOB WELL DONE!

    • Boulder, you must be listening to something else. Nowhere in any article I have read concerning this arrest did it indicate that the woman gave the police anything but full cooperation. In fact, in a separate article her mug shot even looked quite pleasant.

      Why don’t you quit trying to stir things up.

      I will however join you in thanking the police and the good Samaritan that called it in.
