Actor and comedian Tiffany Haddish was arrested in the early hours of Friday morning for driving under the influence, according to reports.

Police in Georgia responded to a 911 call about a driver asleep at the wheel. 

"While en route, an officer observed a vehicle matching the description and ultimately conducted a traffic stop as the vehicle pulled into the yard of a residence." Georgia's Peachtree Police Department chief of police, Matt Myers, told E! News

Tiffany was later arrested for driving under the influence and transported to the Fayette County Jail. 

The comedian was only in police custody for a few hours before posting bail of $1 666 (R25 000), TMZ reports.
