Comedienne Tiffany Haddish has addressed her DUI arrest for the first time. 

Appearing via video chat on The Tonight Show, Haddish briefly narrated her arrest on suspicion of DUI in Georgia on Jan. 14.

Fallon had asked Haddish if she would like to discuss the incident, to which she jokingly replied: “I can say this, Jimmy… I’ve been praying to God to send me a new man. A good man. And God went ahead and sent me four… in uniform.”

Haddish continued, “And now I got a really great lawyer, and we’re going to work it out. I’ve got to get my asking of things to God a little better!”

Fallon replied, “Yeah, you’ve got to be a little clearer!”

Earlier this month, Tiffany Haddish had been arrested by Peachtree City police officers earlier this month for a suspected DUI and improper stopping on a roadway.

The police stated that officers received a 911 call around 2:30 a.m. about a driver who had allegedly fallen asleep at the wheel on Highway 74. While en route, officers located a car matching the description from the 911 call and conducted a traffic stop.

Speaking to PEOPLE, the police said, “Subsequent investigation led to Ms. Tiffany Haddish being arrested for Driving Under the Influence.”

“She was transported to the Fayette County Jail without incident.” 

Hadish’s arrest comes after the actress dealt with the death of her grandmother (who raised her), her pet dog, and close friends Bob Saget and Carl Craig.

She went on to discuss the deaths of both Saget and her grandmother while talking to Fallon on Monday.

“[Saget] was like a big mentor to me, a big brother, a father figure. He meant a lot to me,” Haddish said. “Funny man. He was the first white man to ever tell me, ‘Just be yourself, just be who you are, Tiffany. Don’t worry about nothing. Just be you.’ That was huge for me.”

“And then, my grandma passed away, and she saved my life,” the comedian continued. “That’s my heart. She was like my soulmate. So that’s been… really hard to process, all this… Grief.”
