Actress Stacey Dash Arrested on Domestic Battery Charge

Actress Stacey Dash Arrested on Domestic Battery Charge

The noted Republican was taken into custody, where she's now being held on $500 bail.

According to TMZ, a source close to Dash claimed the actress was defending herself against Marty, and "was arrested because she didn't have any marks on her but her husband did". Jeffrey had scratches on his left arm, the report states. She was taken to a jail in Land O' Lakes without further incident. "I'm an actress", she tells an officer, after he asks what she does for work. She explains to the dispatcher the argument started after she tried to get the teenager to do her homework.

Last October, the two tied the knot in a secret ceremony 10 days after they met.

Marty used the phony account to pose as the "first congressman" to endorse Donald Trump for president, and the Twitter account is still active today.

CNN has reached out to Dash's representatives for comment. It is believed they all live in the Tampa area. But Dash's political aspirations died when she ran for a southern California congressional seat in 2018, but quickly dropped out after being seen as a laughingstock candidate. "I did politics for awhile". She also said Black History Month should be abolished because there isn't a white history month.

Dash, now 52, is accused of pushing an unidentified man and slapping him in the face, WFLA reported. It's Stacey's fourth marriage. She discussed some of the details laid out in her book, There Goes My Social Life, during an interview with ET in 2016.

She says one of the children, who is 15 years old, called her a "f***ing b***h". "I was crying and I said to God, 'Please tell me what to do.' And God told me, 'Keep your son.' I ripped the IV out of my arm and I said, 'I'm keeping my son'".

Pasco County Sheriff's deputies later arrived at the family's home at 7:45pm local time on September 29 and took Stacey into custody after seeing scratches on Jeffrey's arm.
