Officers had received a report around 2:30 a.m. of a driver asleep at the wheel on Highway 74, the statement said. Police located the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop, after which Haddish was arrested.

Haddish’s rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Haddish is a perennial fan favorite to host the Oscars. Last year, she turned down an offer to host the Grammys pre-show because she wouldn’t be paid, prompting the Grammys to apologize. She won the Grammy in 2021 for best comedy album for “Black Mitzvah” and an Emmy for hosting “Saturday Night Live” in 2018. She hosted two seasons of “Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready” for Netflix.

She most recently appeared in “The Card Counter” and is developing a project in which she will play the role of Olympic star Florence Griffith Joyner. She’s also a star of Apple TV Plus’ upcoming murder mystery comedy series “The Afterparty,” which premieres Jan. 28.
