Former NFL Running Back Zac Stacy Seen Brutally Attack the Mother of His Child in Her Home
The fight happened to be captured on video. The video showed Stacy attacking his child’s mother in front of his child, who is only 5 months old.
Warning: This video is disturbing and very hard to watch
In the video, Zac Stacy is seen punching the woman before throwing her into a television. Two days later, the mother filed for a restraining order for her and her son, on Monday, November 15.
In the filed documents, the woman wrote that Stacy came over to her house around 2 p.m. However, when he was there something caused the former football player to fly into a fit of rage.
“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,” the woman wrote in the restraining order application.
“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.”
Zac Stacy was a fifth-round draft pick who played for the Rams and the Jets. The last time he played in the league was in 2015. In the video, you can also hear the woman pleading with Stacy asking him to stop as their baby cried in the background.
The woman was out of sorts as Stacy stormed out of the home while telling his child that he loved them. It’s unclear what started the argument, but Stacy can be heard talking about their relationship.
The woman immediately called 911 but Zac Stacy had already fled the scene. In the restraining order, she added, “I fear for my life and my children’s lives.”
The woman, according to TMZ, was treated at the hospital for a head wound, bumps, and bruises.
