On Sunday night, actress Stacey Dash was arrested for domestic battery. According to NBC News, the Clueless star was taken to a Florida jail after what police characterized as a "verbal argument" allegedly escalated into her hitting and pushing a man. TMZ identified the man attacked as Jeffrey Marty, Dash's husband, and noted he was left with scratches on his arm from the incident. Citing a source, TMZ reports that the actress "acted in self-defense," after Marty allegedly "attacked first" and "attempt[ed> to choke" her, and was arrested "because she didn't have any marks on her, but her husband did." Police camera footage of the arrest revealed that Dash was calm and teary as she was being detained, telling the arresting officer that she was an actress who had been in Clueless but was "taking a break" and also did politics "for a while." The actress is being held on $500 bail, TMZ added.
