Stacey Dash’s Sunday evening (September 29) arrest for alleged domestic violence was caught on the arresting police officer’s body camera, and has been released to the public.
In the video, made public by TMZ, the Clueless actress and conservative pundit is seen calmly being led away from her apartment by police.
The arresting officer is heard asking Dash where she’s from and what she does for a living. She replies by saying she’s an actress and makes note of her time as a political correspondent for Fox News.
Stacey Dash has maintained her innocence since news broke of her arrest for allegedly laying hands on her husband, claiming self-defense. She says her husband, Jeffrey Marty, initiated the physical violence, attempting to choke her and attacked first. Surprisingly, it was Dash who reportedly called law enforcement, though things didn’t turn out in her favor when they arrived.
Stacey Dash was arrested for domestic violence in Florida after reportedly assaulting her new husband, lawyer Jeffrey Marty, over the weekend.
According to TMZ, law enforcement sources confirmed that cops were called to the couple's home at around 7:45 p.m. in Pasco County to respond to a domestic dispute. Dash and Marty reportedly got into a disagreement, which resulted in the conservative pundit pushing and slapping Marty.
When officers showed up at the scene, they reportedly saw scratches on his left arm.
The Clueless star was taken into custody, where she is currently being held on $500 bail. The site reports that in the event of these types of incidents, local authorities tend to hold aggressors for a 24-hour "cooling-off period."
Dash and Marty secretly wed last spring in Florida, according to reports. This is the actress' fourth marriage.
