Police in Florida will not file domestic violence charges against actress and former Fox News commentator Stacey Dash. Police in Pasco, FL arrested her after she called 911 to report a domestic assault.
When police arrived at the home Dash shares with her husband, police noted signs of injury on him. They arrested her and removed her from the scene. Her husband appeared in court on her behalf and declined to press charges. Authorities released Dash following the court appearance and will not pursue charges. Dash has been vocal about her experiences as a domestic violence victim in prior relationships.
In February 2018, Dash briefly entered the race for California’s 44th District seat in the US House of Representatives. She ran as a Republican. In March 2018, Dash withdrew from the race. The 44th District includes South Los Angeles, but is mostly Hispanic. Ultimately, incumbent Nanette Barragán, a Democrat from San Pedro, won a second term.
Originally a Democrat, Dash switched her party affiliation in 2012 and supported Mitt Romney. She signed with Fox News as a commentator in 2014 and parted company with the network in 2017. Dash maintains her support for the Republican Party, but claims that Hollywood has blacklisted her based on her political views.
