According to the publication, the ‘decision came after prosecutors asked the court to modify Haddish’s bond conditions’ following her recent arrest in in Beverly Hills, California on suspicion of driving under the influence.
In their motion, prosecutors informed the court that ‘Haddish had been arrested on November 24, 2023.’

Police found the actress asleep behind the wheel of her car, located in the middle of the busy street Beverly Drive, when it was still running.
Haddish was reportedly ‘slumped over the wheel while the car was running,’ according to TMZ.
After her latest brush with the law, prosecutors are said to have ‘asked that Haddish’s bond be modified to include a provision stating Haddish cannot drink and must be drug tested.’
During the hearing, the judge reportedly ‘granted the motion’ and ‘ordered Haddish not to drink, use drugs including Hem products such as CBD.’
The order, however, allows her to take prescription drugs ‘within the therapeutic limit.’
Additionally, the site claims she will ‘submit to a drug test panel that detects the use of general illegal drugs and shall include testing for ETG and ETS, alcohol metabolites.’
DailyMail.com has reached out to Haddish’s representatives, but did not hear back as of press time.
Following her November arrest, hours after her comedy show at the Laugh Factory in Long Beach on Thanksgiving, she vowed to ‘get help.’
While speaking about how she plans to move forward from the incident, the star told Entertainment Tonight that ‘this will never happen again.’

‘I’m going to get some help so I can learn balance and boundaries,’ she pledged.
The Girls Trip star revealed that she has remained ‘in good spirits’ after the incident, and according to the outlet, ‘complimented the Beverly Hills Police Department for their professionalism and how they handled the situation.’
Her statement comes after source close to the star told DailyMail.com that Haddish is full of ‘regret’ and is keen to shut down any suggestion she has an alcohol problem.
Haddish, who is relieved that no one was hurt by her ‘mistake’, is reportedly conscious of being defined by the incident.
‘Tiffany regrets that she is in the news for being arrested, but is grateful that nobody got hurt,’ an insider told DailyMail.com exclusively. ‘She is going to tackle it all head-on and get the right lawyers.
‘She doesn’t want this to define her or have people think she needs help. She made a mistake, and it is not because she has an alcohol problem. It was just a bad thing that she got herself into and she is working on moving on from it.’

The insider added: ‘She’s looking forward to getting back to work and heading into the new year with the outlook of finding new love and new film and TV opportunities.’
Beverly Hills PD officers received a call at 5:45 AM about a person ‘slumped over the wheel while the car was running,’ according to TMZ.
In a video obtained by the outlet, the actress and comedian can be seen with her hands cuffed behind her back as she is escorted to a patrol car. The arrest was said to be ‘peaceful’ with no resistance.
It came hours after she performed a stand-up set at The Laugh Factory on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood for the club’s 43rd annual free Thanksgiving feast for the community.
The Laugh Factory is about a 15-minute drive from Beverly Hills.

She acknowledged the incident 24 hours later during another set at the Laugh Factory.
Responding to an audience member who asked ‘what happened,’ she quipped: ‘I prayed to God to send me a man with a job. A career. Preferably in a uniform. God answered my prayers.’
In January 2022, she was arrested under a similar circumstance for a DUI in Peachtree City, Georgia – and made a similar joke while discussing the incident with Jimmy Fallon.
At the time, the Night School actress was found ‘dozing in the driver’s seat’ of her car, according to TMZ.
Officers told the site they believed that she had been smoking marijuana.
Soon after, her mug shot was released, showing the star smiling and makeup free.
She addressed the arrest days later during an appearance on The Tonight Show, telling host Fallon: ‘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.’
She 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!’
Haddish had split from rapper and actor Common three months before.
