Tiffany Haddish, the well-known comedian, can now breathe a sigh of relief as one of her DUI cases has been settled on the West Coast. She managed to negotiate a favorable deal,as reported by TMZ.
She made an appearance in an L.A. court on Thursday, where a consensus was reached with the prosecutors regarding her charges. Insiders reveal that Tiffany accepted a plea deal that was quite beneficial. As a result, the two misdemeanor DUI charges she was facing have been dismissed.
Instead of the initial charges, Tiffany Haddish ended up pleading no contest to a lesser charge of reckless driving. This is far from the serious charges she was initially facing.
As you may remember, Tiffany was arrested in Beverly Hills last November. The police reported finding her asleep in her car, which was parked in an unusual manner on the street, partially sticking out.
Tiffany Haddish was indeed arrested and taken to jail, but she was released in no time and quickly returned to her stand-up comedy routine, where she even made light of the situation.
In the wake of the incident, Tiffany promised to make changes. However, she never explicitly admitted to what led to her arrest. Regardless, it’s all water under the bridge now, as she has completely put this issue behind her.
While Tiffany Haddish has resolved one issue, she’s not completely free of legal troubles yet. Her DUI case in Georgia is still pending, and she has recently indicated that she intends to contest it in court.
It’s understandable that she would want one of her DUI cases, like the one in L.A., to be settled favorably. If she had been found guilty in both cases, she could have faced potential jail time. But with the L.A. case now resolved, the possibility of jail time is off the table.
Regarding the Beverly Hills incident, Tiffany Haddish’s lawyer, Alex Spiro says this , “Ms. Haddish has agreed to a simple vehicle code violation – not driving under the influence, which has been dismissed — and looks forward to this being behind her.”
It must be a relief for her to have resolved this case. Now, she only has one more case to deal with.
