Former NFL star running back Zac Stacy has been arrested after turning himself in to Orlando Police and is being charged with Aggravated Battery and Criminal Mischief.
Stacy, who played three seasons in the NFL and retired in 2017, was wanted after a horrifying video showing him beating his ex-girlfriend inside her Florida home emerged on Saturday.
"According to reports of the redacted arrest affidavit from the incident, Oakland, Florida, police responded to an emergency at the victim's home, finding her to be "emotionally distraught with tears in her eyes." The affidavit also indicated that her shirt was torn and that she'd suffered multiple injuries to her face, torso and legs, including bruises and scrapes.
The victim posted the home surveillance video of Stacy allegedly striking her on social media and asked that he be arrested. In the video, she said, “I don’t know why his friends are hiding him."
According to the report, Stacy flew from Nashville to Orlando on Thursday night with the intention of turning himself in. He reportedly was apprehended by Orlando police without incident Thursday night.
The report shows the alleged victim reported multiple previous incidents from August and September, indicating that this was not the first time she claimed Stacy abused her. Police reportedly were called to the same residence on at least two occasions, the first for an alleged verbal dispute between Stacy and the woman and the second one involving a possible domestic violence incident."
His bond is set at $10,150 on felony charges. The Orlando Police Department released the following statement:
"The Orlando Police Department received information that NFL Player, Zac Stacy, wanted out of Orange County/ City of Oakland for Aggravated Battery in a Domestic Violence case was arriving at the Orlando International Airport. Our officers made contact with Stacy as he exited an inbound flight from Nashville and placed him in custody.
Stacy was transported to the Orange County Jail without incident."
