Dash came to fame as an actress on the once hit show “Clueless” and then went on to become a personality on Fox News. Police say that Dash got into an argument and pushed the other person, resulting in a scratch marks on the other person’s arm. She reportedly also slapped the other person. Apparently the other person is her husband, according to Dash’s representative. Dash was arrested on suspicion of domestic battery and taken to the Land O’ Lakes detention center. She was released from jail the next day. Reports indicate she got into the altercation with her husband and his daughter and that Dash was the one who called 9-1-1.
