Former NFL star Zac Stacy has been arrested after a disturbing video emerged of the former running back appearing to assault the mother of his child.

Stacy has been charged with two felonies stemming from the incident – aggravated assault and criminal mischief. The alleged assault occurred on Saturday and an arrest warrant was issued on Wednesday. He fled the scene following the incident and was not initially apprehended after his victim called 911 and despite authorities responding within minutes.

According to the report, Stacy flew from Nashville to Orlando on Thursday night with the intention of turning himself in. He was arrested by Orlando police without incident Thursday night.

According to 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.”

The report shows the 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 a verbal dispute between Stacy and the woman and the second one involving a possible domestic violence incident.

The former Vanderbilt running back had been an ambassador for the TransPerfect Music City Bowl, but the bowl game cut ties with Stacy after the video went public. The Music City Bowl issued a statement Thursday:

“Based on the video and domestic violence report regarding Zac Stacy, the TransPerfect Music City Bowl has terminated the relationship with Zac Stacy effective immediately,”
