NFL star Zac Stacy arrested for battery after shock footage 'showed him attacking ex-girlfriend in front of baby son’

FORMER NFL star Zac Stacy was arrested in Florida on Thursday night after he allegedly punched his ex-girlfriend in front of their five-month-old son.

Stacy, 30, was charged with aggravated battery and criminal mischief over the assault of his baby's mom Kristin Evans that was caught on home surveillance footage.

Police confirmed that Stacy had fled Florida after his alleged attack but was eventually arrested by officers in Orlando.

The former running back is now being held in Orange County Jail, The Post reports.

In footage uploaded to social media by Evans, Stacy appears to punch Evans multiple times in the head before tossing her into the TV.

Their five-month-old boy was sitting nearby as the incident happened in her Florida home on Saturday.

Footage shows the moment Evans' head hit the screen before it fell onto her, TMZ reported.

He “struck [her] on the right side of her head, and picked her up and threw her against the television, causing it to crack and fall over,” according to an affidavit obtained by The Post.

“He continued yelling at her and striking her while she got up from the floor, and picked her up again and threw her into the baby’s bouncy chair.

“While she was still on the floor pleading for him to stop, he picked her up and body-slammed her onto a baby walker, causing the object to break."

TMZ reports that the woman has applied for a restraining order, but it’s not known if this has been granted by a judge.

In a restraining order, Evans claims that Stacy had been abusing her since she became pregnant and that the terrifying attacks had been escalating.

Evans said that she had previously filed a police report last October when the former Jet player slapped her while she was holding their son.

In court documents seen by the outlet, she says the footballer visited the property to see their son at around 2pm on Saturday."

Evans claimed that Stacy "flew into a jealous rage".


In the application cited by the outlet, Evans wrote: “He punched me several times in the head.

"I begged him to stop because the baby was on the couch just a few feet from where he punched me.

“He then picked me up and threw me into my TV. The TV began to fall and he turned to make sure I wasn’t getting up.”

Evans alleged that Stacy slammed her into their son’s bouncy seat.

The mom called the cops and claimed that Stacy left the house before the police arrived.

Evans said she went to the hospital and was treated for a possible head wound, bumps, and bruises.

Stacy is a former running back and played college football at Vanderbilt before being drafted by the St Louis Rams in the 2013 NFL Draft. He played two seasons for the Rams.

The athlete has also appeared for the New York Jets, Saskatchewan Roughriders, and Memphis Express.

TMZ approached Stacy's attorney for comment. The Sun has been unable to reach out to Stacy's representatives.
