Former NFL running back Zac Stacy, shown brutally attacking the mother of child in a disturbing video that emerged on Thursday, was arrested Thursday night, according to TMZ.com.

Stacy faces two felony charges arising from the incident — aggravated battery and criminal mischief.

The arrest came after the victim posted a video message urging that Stacy be apprehended. “I don’t know why his friends are hiding him,” she said.

Per TMZ.com, Stacy flew from Nashville to Orlando with the intention of turning himself in. He was taken into custody without incident.

Stacy has been accused by his victim, Kristin Evans, of other attacks. In an application for a restraining order, Evans wrote that Stacy “has escalated violence since May while I was pregnant. He also assaulted me just weeks before our son was born. He will not stop. He will kill me and he feels justified in his actions.”

Stacy faces up to 15 years in prison on the pending battery charge, and up to five years on the mischief charge. More charges are possible.

  1. Please give him all 15. There is no rehabilitation for someone like this at this point in their life. And prison surely isn’t going to do it, so better he just stays locked up.

  2. “Disturbing” is an understatement. God bless this woman and child. 20 years in prison (potentially) is not enough.

  3. It’s tough to watch. I hope this young man can get the help he needs to grow as, or at least become, a human being… AFTER (or while) he does every minute of that 15 years. Every. Minute.

  4. The videos are absolutely horrific.

    Doing that to the mother of his child, while the child was in the room…barbaric.

    You could tell from the way she reacted – calmly so as not to provoke him – that she has experienced this type of violence from him many times before.

    Absolute scumbag. Lock him up for a long time.

  5. All I have add is prisons need men like this to do HARD LABOR. Breaking rocks for 15 years will take all that aggression right out of him or worse. No more two HOTS and COT for these folks.

  6. This was so very painful to watch. He could have very easily knocked that baby off the couch. He’s an animal, no two ways about it. I pray for this mother and child to be safe and for her to find a man who will be good to her.

  7. He’ll think he’s tough until he gets into that penitentiary. There are lifers in there that couldn’t give a damn. They will shank him.
