Former NFL running back Zac Stacy was arrested in Orlando on Friday morning, a day after a disturbing video surfaced of him violently beating his ex-girlfriend in front of their 5-month-old child. 

Stacy, 30, is facing charges of Aggravated Battery and Criminal Mischief. He is expected to stand before a judge on Friday afternoon. 

In the brutal video, the woman, Kristin Evans, can be heard profusely pleading for Stacy to stop while he was only a few feet from their 5-month-old who was sitting on the couch.  

Evans was punched multiple times in the head, thrown across the room and body-slammed into one of the baby’s bouncy seats. 

She said she was hospitalized with bumps, bruises and a possible cut to the head.

The Oakland Police Department released a redacted affidavit of the incident. Evans told police she extended an olive branch to Stacy and he had brought over breakfast. 

An argument ensued while they were eating and Stacy began to physically assault her. 

“He struck [redacted] on the right side of her head and picked her up, and threw her against the television, causing it to crack and fall over. While [redacted] was on the floor, he continued yelling at [redacted] and striking her while she got up from the floor, picked her up again, and threw her onto the baby’s bouncy chair. Stacy then walked out the front door,” the affidavit said. 

The police issued a statement after they arrived to the home before Stacy was ultimately found and arrested in Florida.
