FORMER NFL player Zac Stacy allegedly smacked his ex-girlfriend with pieces of mail while she held her baby just weeks before he was caught on came
FORMER NFL player Zac Stacy allegedly smacked his ex-girlfriend with pieces of mail while she held her baby just weeks before he was caught on camera throwing her into a TV.
That was one of at least two domestic disturbance calls that police responded to since August that appeared to show how Stacy‘s aggression escalated towards his ex Kristin Evans, according to allegations in police reports exclusively obtained by The Sun.
The disturbing surveillance video from November 13 allegedly showed the former Jets and Rams running back throwing Evans “like a rag doll,” according to the arrest warrant, which was obtained by The Sun.
The beating was recorded by a surveillance camera in Evans’ living room of her Oakland, Florida home.
Stacy, 30, was arrested and charged with second-degree aggravated battery and third-degree criminal mischief, both felonies.
The jarring video quickly went viral, but police reports obtained by The Sun through Freedom of Information requests show that there were at least two other incidents in August and September.
AUGUST FIGHT OVER RENT
On August 16, Stacy and Evans fought over rent money that Stacy demanded Evans pay back, according to the police report.
“When Stacy exited the house and throughout the course of being on scene, Stacy kept menacingly staring while she cried,” the police report claimed.

“No physical violence was visible or reported from either subject.”
Responding officers told Evans and Stacy to resolve the matter in civil court, and Stacy ultimately left without further incident.
AGGRESSION ESCALATES IN SEPTEMBER
On September 26, Evans called police again and reported that Stacy hit her with a stack of mail across her face while she held her baby, according to the police report.
There were no visible marks, according to the report, but “she has a ringing in her ear on the side she was struck.”
By the time police arrived, Stacy was gone and Evans was found “emotionally distraught with tears in her eyes while holding her baby.”
Stacy was at the house to drop off a car seat, according to the report, which didn’t detail what led up to the alleged physical altercation.
“The suspect, Zachary Stacy Sr. did commit battery domestic violence when he wilfully and intentionally struck the mother of his child across the face with a stack of mail against her will,” the report said.
THE NOVEMBER VIDEO AND ARREST
The November video appeared to show the ex-NFL player punching Evans multiple times in the head before tossing her into the TV while their five-month-old boy sat nearby.
The footage shows the moment Evans’ head hit the screen before it fell onto her.
Responding officers found Evans “emotionally distraught” on the couch, the arrest warrant said.
Her “shirt was torn, and she had food in her hair,” the responding officer said in the arrest warrant, which was obtained by The Sun through an open records request.
“The television was knocked over and damaged after the perpetrator threw the victim into it, and the remote was broken on the floor.
“Food was spilled all around the living room, and the baby’s bouncy chair was knocked over and broken,” the arrest warrant said.
Stacy was heard on the graphic video telling their child, “I love you,” before he walked out the door before allegedly fled the state.
Oakland, Florida police said in a previous statement before his arrest that he flew from Nashville to Orlando “with the intention of turning himself in.”
Orlando police arrested him at the airport.
Stacy was drafted and played for the Rams and also appeared for the New York Jets, Saskatchewan Roughriders and Memphis Express.
OAKLAND, FLORIDA POLICE STATEMENT
The Oakland, Florida police department issued a statement about the previous incident.
The first incident was a verbal and “there was no reported crime at the time, (so) the officers completed a written information report to document it in the event there are any further incidents,” police said.
“The second was a domestic violence incident involving the victim and Stacy which occurred on September 26, 2021.
“The suspect struck the victim on the left side of her face with a handful of mail and had left the scene before officers arrived.
“The victim declined to press charges or prosecute the defendant. The Oakland Police Department filed a charge of domestic violence battery to the State Attorney’s Office anyway.
“We gave the victim information on how to file a restraining order, a
victim’s rights pamphlet, and a Marsy’s Law brochure.”
