Stacey Dash has fallen on hard times since she was fired from Fox TV as a political analyst in 2017. With few acting gigs for middle aged actresses, Dash has burned through her savings and is financially dependent on her husband, Jeffrey Marty.
On Sunday, the Clueless star was arrested for assaulting her breadwinner husband. She has filed for indigent status and is asking for a public defender to represent her in court.
According to TMZ, a Florida judge signed off on the request for a public defender after asking Dash to provide proof of her income.
In audio of a 911 call to the Pasco County Sheriff, Dash said that her husband and his three minor children conspired to have her arrested.
The 52-year-old actress was charged with domestic battery for scratching and slapping Marty's face during an argument at their Pasco County condominium on Sunday.
Dash said she, Marty and his children - ages 15, 14 and 10 - were all arguing when she pushed his 15-year-old daughter. She accused Marty, who is a lawyer, of putting her in a chokehold.
She said he advised his three children to lie to the police about the incident.
Marty, 44, can be heard in the background yelling, "I can't believe you did this."
When police arrived on the scene, Dash was arrested and booked into the county jail. She has since been released on $500 bond.
