Tiffany Haddish is speaking out following her recent arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence. 

According to several reports, police allegedly found her asleep at the wheel just before 6am last week. Her Tesla, which was still running, was reportedly parked in the middle of Beverly Drive.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight this week, Tiffany says "this will never happen again". 

The 43-year-old told the publication that her car parked itself after she fell asleep. However, it was reportedly still blocking a section of the roadway. 

"I'm going to get some help so I can learn balance and boundaries," she said.

It's not the first time the actress and comedian has been nabbed on suspicion of DUI. She was arrested in 2022 after witnesses reported a woman who appeared to be sleeping in her car at around 2.30am.

The 'Nobody's Fool' actress was also charged with improper stopping. 

She had another run-in with the law in 2022.  A woman sued Tiffany and Aries Spears for alleged sexual abuse. The woman and her brother reportedly took part in two skis with the comedians in 2013 and 2014.

The siblings, who are referred to as Jane Doe and John Doe, were minors at the time. They said in court papers that the skits were inappropriate and sexually suggestive. 

Tiffany released a statement on her Instagram page to address the case. She said that she "deeply regrets" doing the skits. 

"I know people have a bunch of questions. I get it. I’m right there with you. Unfortunately, because there is an ongoing legal case, there’s very little that I can say right now. But, clearly, while this sketch was intended to be comedic, it wasn't funny at all – and I deeply regret having agreed to act in it. I really look forward to being able to share a lot more about this situation as soon as I can,” she wrote.
