DOMESTIC BATTERY CHARGE: Stacey Dash

CLUELESS ACTRESS Stacey Dash has been charged with domestic battery by police in Florida.

The star was charged after she allegedly slapped a man in the face. 

It is understood that the incident took place after a verbal argument at around 7.45pm on Sunday.

The man had “red scratch marks” on his upper left arm, BuzzFeed News reported the Pasco Sheriff’s Office said. 

In a recording of the 911 call that Dash made, she says that she was defending herself from her husband after he put her in a chokehold during an argument.

In a video which shows the 52-year-old being handcuffed by police she complies with the officer’s instructions and at one point asks if she is being arrested.

The officer tells her that he will walk her over the patrol car and explain everything.

Later, when the office asks her if she has ever been arrested before, she replies no.

The actress, best known for her role as Dionne in the hit 1995 film, was released on bail yesterday.

She has also starred in Kanye West’s All Falls Down music video, the film Mo’ Money and TV show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

As well as acting, Dash has also dabbled in politics.

She became a political commentator, most notably appearing on Fox News as a contributor.

In 2018 she filed to run for a congressional seat in Southern California but pulled out a month later. 

In 2016 she published a book, There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative.

Dash is married to Jeffrey Marty, her fourth husband, who she wed in 2018 after 10 days of dating, The Sun reported.
