Stacey’s manager reportedly told TMZ that she acted in self-defense. “The manager claims Stacey’s husband attacked first, attempting to choke Stacey and she defended herself … which resulted in him getting scratches on his arms. The manager says Stacey is the one who called 911, and she was arrested because she didn’t have any marks on her but her husband did,” TMZ reports. However, Nick Terry, Stacey’s manager, tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the comment about self-defense was not made by his “office.”

The Clueless star allegedly attacked her new husband, Jeffrey Marty, who she allegedly pushed and slapped during a spat at her home, sources told TMZ. Police responded to a domestic dispute call around 7:45 PM, and upon arrival authorities observed scratches on Marty’s left arm, the sources added. Stacey was reportedly taken into custody, where she’s currently being held on $500 bail.
Stacey and Marty recently got married last spring in a secret wedding ceremony in Florida. There’s little to no information about Stacey’s fourth marriage. Nonetheless, Marty is a lawyer, TMZ says.
