On the evening of Sunday, September 29, 2019, actress Stacey Dash and her husband had a marital dispute in their Tampa, FL suburb; Pasco County Deputies were dispatched to their residence. No charges were pressed by her husband, however, Deputies arrested Ms. Dash peacefully, as a formality.
Her husband appeared in court the next day on her behalf and Ms. Dash was released from the Land O’ Lakes detention facility. No further legal action is pending.
The marital dispute, while personal and unfortunate, has since been blown out of proportion. An earlier report on TMZ.com sited her manager telling TMZ that she was attacked by her husband – both the sources relationship to Ms. Dash and the events of the evening were misrepresented.
Ms. Dash is a domestic abuse survivor from a previous relationship and has championed for other abuse victims to speak up.
