A former NFL player is on the run after he was exposed on home video punching his ex-girlfriend before tossing her into her TV at her Florida home. She filed a restraining order and police issued a warrant.
Home surveillance footage shows former New York Jets running back 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. She has since filed for a restraining order against Stacy. The order claims that Stacy has been abusing her since she was pregnant with her son, with the attacks escalating and no signs of ceasing.
Evans who wrote: ‘He will not stop. He will kill me and he will feel justified in his actions,’ also revealed that Stacy was ‘voluntarily hospitalized for mental illness’ in March of 2021 and is taking medication for his afflictions.
Stacy a former fifth round pick who played in eight games for the Jets in 2015. Prior to that he 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.
The incident has forced both a prominent college bowl game and the National Down Syndrome Society to sever ties with the ex-running back.
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,’ Evans wrote in her post.

The sequence of events that led to the horrific attack that was caught on home cam began when the former football player visited his son at his ex-girlfriend’s house at around 2pm on Saturday.
But once there, he flew into a jealous rage and attacked his mother of his five-month-old son, punching her multiple times in the head before dragging her from the couch and throwing her into the TV, which then fell on her.
Evans can be heard begging for Stacy to stop in the disturbing video.
In the application for a restraining order filed by Evans, the pair met in January 2019. She claims this was not the first incident of domestic abuse in their relationship.
The pair had been living apart since August. On Saturday afternoon Stacy visited his son at his estranged girlfriend’s house. But once there she alleges, he brought up an incident that took place in September 2020.
The discussion escalated and he flew into a jealous rage and attacked her, Evans said.
As seen in the footage posted by Evans, her ex punched her 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 continues: ‘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 their infant son and left before she called 911.
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. Apparently he was angry 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 her to refund money that he had given her 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 who graduated from Vanderbilt with a degree in special education, played the 2013 and 2014 seasons for the St. Louis Rams and then for the New York Jets in 2015. He broke his ankle that season, limiting himself to just eight games with Jets. He never again played in the NFL.
He retired from football in 2017 but played preseason with Saskatchewan in the Canadian Football League in 2018.
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. The organization released a statement Thursday saying they would not work with him again.
‘The National Down Syndrome Society is horrified by the video of former NFL football player Zac Stacy attacking the mother of his child,’ the statement read. ‘NDSS last partnered with him in 2019 to conduct a football clinic for individuals with Down syndrome and their siblings. We do not have a current partnership with Zac, and we will not renew our partnership with him. This terrible act of violence goes against our core values as an organization. Our support goes to the victim and her family.’
