Former NFL player Zac Stacy arrested in Florida after allegedly beating his ex

Former Jet Zac Stacy was arrested in Florida Thursday night after allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend last weekend in front of their 5-month-old son, authorities said.

The 30-year-old former NFL runner has been charged with aggravated battery and criminal mischief for the captured on-camera assault by the mother of her baby Kristin Evans at her home on Saturday, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s office.

Police said Stacy fled the Sunshine State after her alleged attack, but he was arrested by Orlando police, records show.

The former athlete is held at Orange County Jail.

Stacy allegedly flew into a rage after arriving at Evans’ home to visit their son.

He “knocked [her] on the right side of her head, and grabbed her and threw her against the TV, causing it to crack and fall, ”according to police.

“He kept yelling at her and hitting her as she got up from the floor, and picked her up and threw her into the baby’s jumping chair,” according to an arrest affidavit obtained from The Post.

“While she was still on the floor begging him to stop, he grabbed her and slapped her on a baby stroller, causing the object to break,” the affidavit said.

In prison, Evans claims Stacy has been abusing her since she became pregnant with her child last year, with the horrific attacks escalating.

The woman said she had previously filed a police report in October when Stacy allegedly slapped her on the cheek while she was holding their son.

Stacy, a former fifth-round NFL pick, played in eight games for the Jets in 2015. Prior to that, he was a St. Louis Ram for two years.
