According to TMZ, cops say that Stacy had flown into Orlando, Florida from Nashville with the intentions of turning himself in, and was taken into custody with no altercation.
Stacy has been charged with aggravated assault and criminal mischief, and is currently being held in the Orange County Jail.
If convicted, he could face more than 15 years behind bars.
His ex-girlfriend, Kristin Evans, wrote in an Instagram post:
“Personally I feel the state should have several more charges, but thank you to everyone who made this possible! We are halfway there.
CONVICTED & SENTENCING NEXT!”
According to the New York Post, since the release of the horrific video, Evans has started a GoFundMe to raise awareness for domestic violence victims.
“I want to encourage all men and women who have been a victim of domestic violence to reach out to your local domestic violence center for help and I would like to help provide better resources for them.”
As of early this morning, she has raised over $1,200 out of her $50,000 goal.
According to the affidavit, Stacy:
“Struck her on the right side of her head, and picked her up and threw her against the television, causing it to crack and fall over.
He continued yelling at her and striking her while she got up from the floor, and picked her up again and threw her into the baby’s bouncy chair.
“While she was still on the floor pleading for him to stop, he picked her up and body-slammed her onto a baby walker, causing the object to break.”
The 30-year-old ex-NFL running back played four seasons at Vanderbilt from 2009-2012. He was drafted by the Rams in 2013 and finished his short career with the Jets in 2015.
A number of current and former NFL players has commented on the horrifying video, as well as UFC fighter Uriah Hall, who promised to whoop his ass on sight.
I’m not retweeting the video but ZAC STACY NEED TO BE THROWN UNDER THE JAIL. Any man that puts his hands on a woman is a coward. Can’t believe what I just saw.
