A former New York Jets running back was exposed on video punching his ex-girlfriend before tossing her into her TV at her Florida home and is now allegedly on the run after his ex filed a restraining order and police issued a warrant.
Home surveillance footage shows Zac Stacy, 30, attacking the mother of his child in front of their five-month-old son at her Florida home on Saturday.
The footage was posted on social media by the victim, Kristin Evans.
Evans has now filed for a restraining order against Stacy, a former fifth round pick who played in eight games for the Jets in 2015.
The order claims that Stacy has been abusing her since she was pregnant with her son, with the attacks escalating and no signs of stopping.
Evans wrote: ‘He will not stop. He will kill me and he will feel justified in his actions.’
She also revealed that Stacy was ‘voluntarily hospitalized for mental illness’ in March of 2021.
Prior to that, Stacy spent two years with the St. Louis Rams. He last played in the now-defunct Alliance of American Football in 2019 with the Memphis Express.
Evans can be heard begging for Stacy to stop in the disturbing video.
Evans claimed on social media Wednesday that Stacy is still on the loose in the Nashville area and that officers in the town of Oakland, where she lives, took four days to issue a warrant.
‘The Oakland PD officers that came to my house didn’t seem to think this was a bad enough incident to make an immediate arrest or to file for an immediate warrant. It took four days of me calling people and an Orange County officer speaking on my behalf,’ she wrote.

The incident began when the former football player visited his son at his ex’s house at around 2pm on Saturday.

According to a restraining order filed by Evans, the pair met in January 2019. She claimed this wasn’t the first incident of domestic abuse.
The incident began when the former football player visited his son at Evans’ house at around 2pm on Saturday. The two had been living apart since August.
But once there, he began addressing her over an incident that took place in September 2020 before he flew into a jealous rage and attacked his ex, punching Evans multiple times in the head before dragging her from the couch and throwing her into the TV, which then fell on her.
‘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,’ Evans wrote in her restraining order application, first obtained by TMZ.
She added: ‘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.
‘I fear for my life and my children’s lives,’ Evans wrote in the application. It’s not clear whether a judge has approved the order.
The victim says that after the attack, Stacy said ‘I love you’ to the baby boy and left before she called 911.
The victim, Kristin Evans, posted the videos herself on social media Wednesday

Evans then took herself to hospital where she was treated for a possible head wound and bruising. She said that she couldn’t walk without limping.
The victim previously filed a police report in October when Stacy allegedly slapped her while she was holding the baby for claiming that she’d found out his apartment number at the place he’d moved into after they stopped living together.
She added that he assaulted her several times on August 15 because he wanted money back that he had given Evans for rent.
In that incident, Evans said Stacy punched her legs, slapped her and picked her up and threw her into her window, which broke.
Stacy’s violence, according to the restraining order, extends back to the weeks before their son was born.
She has expressed her outrage at Florida police on social media.
‘The Florida justice system has been failing me,’ she wrote. ‘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.’
Stacy joined the Jets in 2015 and previously played two seasons for the St. Louis Rams. He broke his ankle that season, limiting himself to just eight games and never again played in the NFL.

Evans most recently was a ‘youth football ambassador’ for the TransPerfect Music City Bowl in Nashville.
The game – which pits a team from the Big Ten against a team from the SEC – quickly announced it was severing ties with Stacy Thursday morning.
‘Based on the video and domestic violence report regarding Zac Stacy, the TransPerfect Music City Bowl has terminated the relationship with Zac Stacy effective immediately,’ the organization said in a release.
Stacy had most recently given an interview in 2020, claiming his faith played a constant role in his life.
‘I have always been a guy who never really looks at accolades or stats. It has always been about putting my team first, being professional (and giving) glory to God. For any recognition or accolade that I have, He gets all the glory,’ said Stacy in a 2020 interview.
Stacy also promoted his work as an ambassador for the National Down Syndrome Society.
