Tiffany Haddish addressed her Jan. 14 arrest on suspicion of DUI while appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Monday night.

“I can say this, Jimmy: I’ve been praying to God to send me a new man. A good man,” Haddish said. “And God went ahead and sent me four — in uniform.”

After Haddish admitted she “was not expecting that at all,” and audience laughter subsided, the comedian and actress continued, acknowledging that she had gotten representation. “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!”

Haddish was arrested in mid-January and charged with driving under the influence in Peachtree City, around 40 miles south of Atlanta. Peachtree City Police assistant chief Matt Myers confirmed her arrest in a news release, with The Afterparty star detained following a 2:30 a.m. call to authorities citing a driver asleep at the wheel on a highway.

Haddish was stopped by an officer as she was pulling into the yard of a residence after they determined her car matched the description provided by the caller.

Haddish posted bond and was released from the Fayette County jail. No other information, including a possible court date, was provided.
