‘Clueless’ Star Stacey Dash Arrested On Battery Charges [Mugshot]
Clueless actress Stacey Dash was arrested for an incident Sunday night in New Port Richey, Florida, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office. She was arrested on domestic battery charges.
The police were called to a home Sunday evening “to respond to a domestic dispute.” Dash was then taken into custody after an argument with a male, who later was identified as her husband. She is accused of pushing and slapping him.
A Pasco County Sheriff’s Office body cam video showed Dash telling the arresting officer that she was “taking a break” from acting. “I did politics for a while,” the 52-year-old said. “I was a Fox News contributor.”
Deputies stated “the victim sustained red scratch marks to his left upper arm from being pushed. A 911 call released Monday revealed Dash also accused her husband of assault.
“We were all arguing, I asked his daughter to get out of my face because she was in my face, I pushed her back, he put me into a chokehold,” she told a 911 operator. On the call, Dash claimed that Marty and his three “awful children” — ages 15, 14 and 10 — were conspiring to be “witnesses” against her. “He’s taking pictures of scratches on his arm that I did not put there,” she is heard saying on a call.
Dash was taken into custody and transported to the Land O’ Lakes detention facility without incident. She posted bail and was released on Monday morning, according to a spokesperson for the Pasco County Sheriff.
Marty is Dash’s fourth husband. She also has two children from prior relationships.
On Monday, Dash attempted to downplay the incident from a statement through her manager. “The marital dispute, while personal and unfortunate, has since been blown out of proportion,” the statement read. “Ms. Dash is a domestic abuse survivor from a previous relationship and has championed for other abuse victims to speak up. The untruthfulness being reported saddens Ms. Dash and her family — no further comments will be made and we ask that Ms. Dash and her family’s privacy will be respected.”
