Stacey Dash has been bailed out of jail by her husband.

The “Clueless” star was released from Florida’s Land-O-Lakes Jail Monday morning after her lawyer husband, Jeffrey Marty, posted her $500 bond, according to Pasco County Court records obtained by USA TODAY.

Dash was appointed a public defender Wednesday and entered a written plea of not guilty, according to court documents.

The actress and outspoken conservative, 52, was arrested Sunday on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery.

In a 911 call obtained by TMZ, Dash can be heard saying, “I’ve been assaulted by my husband.” She told the operator that Marty “put me into a choke hold” after she pushed his teen daughter away during an argument.

However, authorities told NBC News and Tampa Bay ABC station WFTS that Dash pushed and slapped Marty, leaving scratches on his arm. She was taken into custody and charged as a result.

Dash and Marty secretly tied the knot in April 2018, the actress’ fourth marriage. Dash shared an Instagram video of her holding what appear to be wedding rings. She kisses her husband in the video.

“The Love of Christ… Thank You Jesus for giving Your life for me. Answering prayers that in this world seem impossible. My children, my husband are my greatest Blessings,” she wrote.

Dash is best known for playing Dionne Marie Davenport in the 1995 film “Clueless.” In recent years, she worked as a conservative political commentator.

She announced she was no longer running for Congress in California a little more than a month after she filed paperwork to create a campaign committee back in 2018.

“At this point, I believe that the overall bitterness surrounding our political process, participating in the rigors of campaigning, and holding elected office would be detrimental to the health and wellbeing of my family,” she said in a statement posted on Twitter.
