In front of his 5-month-old son, an ex-NFL running back is allegedly seen on video attacking his ex-girlfriend.
Zac Stacy, a former NFL running back, is accused of viciously assaulting his ex-girlfriend in front of their 5-month-old son.
A video of the incident was leaked online, showing a man named Stacy punching the woman and then slamming her into a television.
The altercation occurred on Saturday at the woman’s home in Florida, according to TMZ Sports.
During an argument, Stacy reportedly became enraged and aggressive with the woman, punching her and throwing her across the room into the television. In the video, the woman tells Stacy to stop.
After the altercation, she called the cops, but Stacy had already left.
Stacy allegedly came over on Saturday to see his son, according to the woman, who filed a restraining order on Monday.
The woman wrote in the restraining order document, “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!”
He then picked me up and threw me into my television. As the television began to fall, he turned to ensure I wasn’t getting up.
He began yelling at me as I lay on the floor, accusing me of being a destructive person.
He then picked me up off the floor and slammed me into our son’s bouncy seat.” The woman was taken to the hospital and treated for a possible head wound, as well as bumps and bruises.
The Saints took Stacy, 30, in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
On 250 carries, he rushed for 973 yards and seven touchdowns, making an immediate impact in his rookie season.
Before being traded to the New York Jets in 2015, Stacy spent another season with the Rams.
After being waived by the Jets in 2016, he announced his retirement from the NFL in 2017 due to injuries and caring for his Down syndrome brother.
“I’d like to express my gratitude to the National Football League, the former St. Louis Rams, and the former St. Louis Cardinals,” he said
According to Saturday Down South, Stacy wrote in an Instagram post at the time of his retirement, “Thank you to the New York Jets organization, the St. Louis now Los Angeles Rams organization, and the New York Jets organization for making my dream come true.”
On and off the field, it was an honor to represent both organizations.”
