A disturbing video shows former NFL and Vanderbilt University running back Zac Stacy brutalizing his ex-girlfriend in front of their 5-month-old son.
TMZ reports the incident took place inside the woman's Florida home on Saturday.
Stacy reportedly became angry during an argument between the two and swung at the woman's head before yanking her off the couch and tossing her across the room and into a television, which then falls on top of her as she attempts to calm the former NFL running back down, but he instead throws an object at her.
The woman is heard pleading for Stacy to stop throughout the video.
TMZ reports the woman immediately called police after the incident, but Stacy fled the scene prior to officers' arrival.
Footage of the incident was shared by TMZ in the video below. Viewer discretion is strongly advised.
The woman applied for a restraining order against Stacy for her and her son, citing that she feared for her and her children's lives in the document obtained by TMZ.
The document reports Stacy went to the house to visit his son at around 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, which the woman claims resulted in the former football player flying into a jealous and violent rage.
"He punched me several times in the head! I begged him to stop because the baby was on the couch just a few feet from where he punched me," the woman wrote in the application.
"He then picked me up and threw me into my TV," she continued. "The TV began to fall and he turned to make sure I wasn't getting up. As I laid on the floor he began to yell at me, telling me I'm destructive. He then picked me up off the floor and off my feet and body-slammed me into our son's bouncy seat."
The woman said Stacy then told their son "I love you" before fleeing the scene.
The woman said she was treated for a possible head wound, as well as bumps and bruises, at a nearby hospital after the incident occurred.
Stacy was selected by the then-St. Louis Rams in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft at No. 160 overall, after being selected as a second-team All-SEC running back during his final two seasons at Vanderbilt (2011, 2012).
He spent two seasons with the Rams and one with the New York Jets (2015) during his NFL career, recording 1,355 yards and nine rushing touchdowns on 357 rushing attempts, as well as 53 receptions for 358 yards and one touchdown.
Stacy initially retired from the NFL in February 2017 due to injuries and to take care of his brother with Down Syndrome before coming out of retirement to join the Canadian Football League's Saskatchewan Roughriders in May 2018 and later the Memphis Express of the now-defunct Alliance of American Football in 2019.
