Former NFL player Zac Stacy was caught on video beating his ex-girlfriend, Kristin Evans, right in front of their 5-month-old son. The shocking assault footage showed Stacy hitting his ex-girlfriend multiple times on the head then throwing her into the TV and later body slamming her into their son’s bouncy seat.
The violent video was shared online by Kristin Evans and has since gone viral. Many are calling for the former football player to be held accountable for his actions.
During the attack video, the woman was heard begging for Stacy to stop while he called her destructive and a “f–king bitch.” When she finally got to call 911, the former Jets running back fled the scene and allegedly told his son “I love you,” before running off.
Evans has filed a restraining order against the football player and said that she doesn’t feel safe. She has asked for a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend.
WARNING: The video below contains extreme violence and could be disturbing to viewers.
According to Evans, Zac Stacy came over on Nov. 13 around 2 p.m. to see his son. While there, the former football player flew into a jealous rage before beating his ex-girlfriend.
“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,” said the ex-girlfriend in her restraining order application.
By the time cops arrived at the Florida home, Stacy was already gone. Evans was taken to the hospital and treated for her head injuries along with some bruises from being thrown across the room.
“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. As I laid on the floor he began to yell at me, telling me I’m destructive. He then picked me up off the floor and off my feet and body-slammed me into our son’s bouncy seat,” said Evans.
Zac Stacy played for three years in the NFL before retiring in 2017. He previously played for the New York Jets and the St. Louis Rams. The former football player and his attorney have yet to comment on the alleged assault or the attack video.
Since the violent attack video was released, people on social media are calling for the former football player to be arrested. They are taking to Twitter and sharing their outrage about the terrifying footage.
Davante Adams, a player for the Green Bay Packers, tweeted, “I’m not retweeting the video but ZAC STACY NEED TO BE THROWN UNDER THE JAIL. Any man that puts his hands on a woman is a coward. Can’t believe what I just saw.”
Another Twitter user said, “I’m not going to RT the video because it’s vile, but I will say — calling Zac Stacy an animal would be too kind. a truly disgusting, despicable and repulsive individual who belongs IN JAIL. I hope that local authorities protect this woman and her child.”
Many people have chosen not to share the video because of the graphic and violent footage. They are calling on the state of Florida to do more when it comes to protecting domestic abuse victims.
Kristin Evans tweeted the video and said, “The Florida justice system has been failing me. I have filed police reports previously and the State Attorney hasn’t picked them up. Other women fall victim to this everyday. Please call attention to the Florida State Attorney.”
Zac Stacy’s location is currently unknown. Some say the former NFL player is on the run from the police.
