Former Jet Zac Stacy was arrested in Florida Thursday night after allegedly attacking his ex-girlfriend last weekend in front of their 5-month-old son, authorities said.
The 30-year-old former NFL running back was charged with aggravated battery and criminal mischief over the caught-on-camera assault of his baby’s mother, Kristin Evans, at her home on Saturday, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
Police had said Stacy fled the Sunshine State after his alleged attack, but he was arrested by Orlando police, records show.
The former athlete is being held in Orange County Jail.
Stacy allegedly flew into a fit of rage after arriving at Evans’ home to visit their son.
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 police.
“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,” according to an arrest affidavit obtained by The Post.
“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,” the affidavit said.
In a restraining order, Evans claims Stacy had been abusing her since she became pregnant with his child last year, with the terrifying attacks escalating.
The woman said she previously filed a police report in October when Stacy allegedly slapped her while she was holding their son.
Stacy, a former fifth-round NFL pick, played in eight games for the Jets in 2015. Before that, he was a St. Louis Ram for two years.
