Actress Stacey Dash was arrested for domestic violence Sunday in Florida,TMZ reports.

Stacey, who starred in Clueless, allegedly pushed and slapped her husband, lawyer Jeffrey Marty, but a source insists she was acting in self-defense. The insider claims Jeffrey "attacked first, attempting to choke Stacey and she defended herself, which resulted in him getting scratches on his arms."

Stacey, who's been a conservative pundit in recent years, reportedly was the one who called police, but was arrested because she didn't have any marks on her while her husband did.
