Kristin Evans, former NFL player Zac Stacy’s ex-girlfriend, shared more graphic photos of the brutal attack she endured after he allegedly assaulted her in front of their 5-month-old son. Arrested on Thursday night, Zac Stacy was charged with two felonies, including aggravated assault and criminal mischief.
Thanking everyone for their support online, Evans added that the former Jets player should have had “several more charges,” stating “CONVICTION & SENTENCING NEXT!”
Sharing new photos of injuries she received on her arms and legs as a result of the brutal attack, she described how his abuse escalated over the course of their relationship, and that she believes the state should add additional charges.
WARNING: The images and video below are extremely graphic and violent and could be disturbing to viewers.
Coming home in a fit of rage, Stacy can be seen in video of the event picking up Kristin Evans and throwing her in the flat-screen television, which then fell on top of her. After the caught-on-camera attack, he fled the scene, and Evans shared photos of her injuries on Instagram.
Depicting bruises on her arms and legs, the photos were accompanied by a quote from late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg that read, “If you are neutral in situations of injustice you have chosen to side with the oppressors.”
Seen leaving the house in the horrifying video, Zac Stacy was originally reported as being on the run from police, but arrest reports state that he was on his way to turn himself over to the authorities.
He was not at home when officers arrived to Kristin Evans’ address mere minutes after the assault, however, with Evans asking, “I don’t know why his friends are hiding him.”
Flying from Nashville to Orlando, Stacy was apprehended Thursday night and charged, reportedly without incident. The former NFL player is being held in Orange County Jail without bond. Kristin Evans has also filed a restraining order against Stacy.
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,” police reports stated.
“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,” the reports continued. “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.”
Zac Stacy also allegedly turned to his son and said “I love you” right before fleeing the scene.
“I begged him to stop because the baby was on the couch just a few feet from where he punched me,” Kristin Evans wrote in her restraining order. “The TV began to fall and he turned to make sure I wasn’t getting up. As I laid on the floor he began to yell at me, telling me I’m destructive.”
Some athletes came to Evans’ defense on social media after she posted the horrifying video, such as Davante Adams, a player for the Green Bay Packers.
“I’m not retweeting the video [due to its graphic content] but ZAC STACY NEED TO BE THROWN UNDER THE JAIL,” he wrote. “Any man that puts his hands on a woman is a coward. Can’t believe what I just saw.”
Talking about domestic violence on Instagram, Kristin urged others suffering to “reach out to your local domestic violence center for help.”
“I would like to help provide better resources for them,” she said. “How you respond to something says more about you than it does about them.”
