Zac Stacy had been hiding out with friends in Florida, but he knew he wasn’t going to be able to hide for long.
His face was on every website and TV station in the country. It was like he was on the FBI’s most-wanted list. Other athletes were actively trying to track him down to give him a beatdown.
Eventually, faced with these unwinnable circumstances, he turned himself in.
Ex-NFL player Zac Stacy was arrested in Florida and is currently in jail … just days after he savagely beat his ex-girlfriend in front of their 5-month-old son, TMZ Sports has learned.
30-year-old Stacy repeatedly punched Kristin Evans, the mother of his baby boy in the head multiple times before picking her up and throwing her into a television — all while she begged him to stop and the baby cried.
When Stacy — a 5th round draft pick out of Vanderbilt in 2013 — finally stopped attacking, he fled the scene. Evans called 911 and cops say they arrived in under 2 minutes, but the running back was long gone.
Cops say Stacy was arrested shortly after flying into Florida from Tennessee on Thursday night.
According to police, Stacy flew from Nashville to Orlando “with the intention of turning himself in,” and was taken into custody by the Orlando PD without incident.
Stacy has been charged with aggravated assault and criminal mischief. If convicted on all charges, he could serve 15 years in jail.
Sadly, what is likely to happen is some sort of plea deal where he gets less time.
Based on the videos, you would think the prosecutors wouldn’t be in the mood to give him a lighter sentence, so we will have to see what happens.
Stacy was on social media the other day flaunting his freedom, but it looks like from his mugshot, reality has set in.
