Tiffany Haddish’s Mugshot Has People Talking After She Was Arrested Under Suspicion of DUI
Police reportedly received a call about a driver who was falling asleep at the wheel. The caller gave a description of the car and reportedly located it pulling into a neighborhood around 4 a.m. on January 14.
Police believe Tiffany Haddish had smoked marijuana before getting behind the wheel. Just a couple of hours later, Haddish posted the $1,666 bond to get out of police custody.
After her mugshot was made public, people took notice of it. As many reports have pointed out, Haddish is seen with a smile on her face.
As TMZ also pointed out, Tiffany Haddish has dealt with a lot of loss over the last several months. From losing the grandmother who raised her and her beloved dog to losing a “father-figure” in Bob Saget, we can only imagine the emotions Haddish is dealing with.
While talking with Entertainment Tonight, Haddish got visibly emotional when talking about Saget, who passed away unexpectedly at the age of 65 on January 9. She admitted that the last several weeks have been very difficult for her.
“I’m going through some things over here. My personal life is in shambles,” Haddish told ET. “This year people are like ‘Happy New Year!’ I’m like, no, neutral New Year. I’m gonna be neutral in the year.”
Tiffany Haddish, who recently turned 42 years old, had known Saget for nearly 25 years. “That man– he taught me so much. I met him when I was 16 at the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp. He was always encouraging and kind.”
“You know when you watch TV shows and you’re like, ‘I wish I had a dad like that?’ He became like this — he was instantly like a father figure to me. Around the time I turned to like 21 he shifted from a father figure type to like a big brother. He’d be like, ‘Alright, let’s go out.’ He would send me messages and tell me he was proud of me.”
Haddish said she often turned to Saget for a kind shoulder to lean on during difficult times. She said Saget always accepted her for who she was and encouraged her to never change.
“He would be like, ‘Tiffany forget all that. You got to be you, got to do what’s right for you.’ He was one of those few people who always encouraged me to be myself. You know, in Hollywood people are always trying to encourage you to be something you’re not, like, ‘Oh you need to look this way. You shouldn’t use this word. You’ve got too much of a country twang. You sound too ghetto.’ He was one of the few people, this white man, like, ‘Be your best self. You’re a strong Black woman, be that!'”
We hope Tiffany Haddish gets some peace soon.
