A former New York Jets running back is accused of violently attacking his ex-girlfriend in front of their 5-month-old son at the woman’s Florida home on Saturday, a report said.
Zac Stacy, 30, who played in eight games for the Jets in 2015, allegedly punched his ex in the head several times before tossing her into a TV after coming over to see the baby, TMZ reported, citing sources and court documents.
Stacy then allegedly “body-slammed” her into the boy’s bouncy seat.
A portion of the horrifying attack was captured on video obtained by the outlet.
In the footage, the woman can be seen falling to the floor during the brutal attack and pleading for the man to stop.
“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 recalled in a restraining order application obtained by TMZ.
After the attack, the woman called police and Stacy fled the house.
It wasn’t immediately clear if a judge granted the woman’s request for a restraining order.
“I fear for my life and my children’s lives,” she wrote in the application.
The woman, in the application, said she was hospitalized after the attack with bumps and bruises and a possible cut to the head.
Stacy’s last NFL stint was with the Jets. Before that he played two seasons for the St. Louis Rams
