Ex-NFL running back Zac Stacy, who is accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend, has received a major update.
An arrest has been made following the release of a video that purports to show former NFL running back Zac Stacy brutally assaulting his ex-girlfriend in front of their child.
Stacy was arrested shortly after flying into Florida from Tennessee on Thursday night, according to TMZ Sports.
Stacy flew from Nashville to Orlando “with the intent of turning himself in,” according to police, and was apprehended by Orlando cops.
Stacy is charged with two felonies, according to Yahoo Sports: aggravated assault (great bodily harm) and criminal mischief (greater than or equal to (dollar)1,000.
On Saturday, the incident occurred, and the arrest warrant was issued on Wednesday.
While the child was crying, Stacy punched the woman and threw her around the room.
Stacy managed to flee the scene before the cops arrived.
Kristin Evans, the woman who was involved in the incident, recently spoke about it.
According to Fox News, Evans said, “This was just the last straw.”
Evans posted a video of the attack from her home surveillance footage on social media, saying, “I truly believe that if this continues, he will kill me.”
When the arrest warrant was issued, Stacy was supposed to turn himself in.
Evans suspected that his friends were assisting in his concealment.
“We were under the impression that he was in Nashville.”
We don’t know if he’ll be back in Orlando today.
“I heard something about it,” Evans said.
Stacy was a member of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Stacy met Evans in 2019 while working as a Wellness Coordinator for the Memphis Express of the American Alliance of Football, another team for which Stacy played.
Stacy became more Physical with Evans after the birth of their son, and they began dating in August of that year.
“In his actions, he feels justified.”
“Nothing anyone could do could justify something like that,” Evans said.
The Music City Bowl has cut ties with Stacy, who was the YFP ambassador, in addition to Evans’ arrest.
“The TransPerfect Music City Bowl has terminated the relationship with Zac Stacy effective immediately, based on the video and domestic violence report,” the statement reads.
From 2013 to 2015, Stacy was a member of the National Football League.
In his final two seasons at Vanderbilt, he rushed for over 1,100 yards.
