The Girls Trip star was taken to a county jail after allegedly falling asleep at the wheel in the early hours of Friday morning.

Tiffany Haddish was arrested in Georgia early Friday morning, local time, on suspicion that she was driving under the influence.

Peachtree City Police told Page Six on Friday that they arrested the Girls Trip star, 42, around 2.30am after she allegedly fell asleep at the wheel.

Cops had received a call that a driver was dozing off on the road, and Haddish’s vehicle matched the caller’s description.

Police conducted their traffic stop of the Night School star’s vehicle as she was pulling into the yard of a residence, according to the department. She was subsequently transported to Fayette County Jail “without incident.”

According to TMZ, cops believe Haddish had been smoking marijuana.

The stand-up comic has been open about her recreational drug use.

In 2017, she revealed she once got very high and invited pals Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith to a swamp tour she purchased on Groupon.

However, this time, her alleged smoking led to a very different outcome as she was reportedly booked for a DUI and improper stopping on a roadway.

Haddish’s reps did not immediately respond to our requests.

The comedian has not tweeted or posted about the incident on Instagram. However, the arrest did not appear to get her down judging by a mugshot obtained by TMZ.

In the photo, Haddish appears cheerful as she flashes a big smile for the cops. Her hair was styled with her short, blond ‘do, and she seemed to be wearing a grey jacket.
