Former NFL running back Zac Stacy allegedly punched his ex-girlfriend with a bundle of mail while holding their baby – weeks before he was caught on camera brutally beating her.
Shocking surveillance footage from this month shows Stacy, 30, repeatedly punching Kristin Evans and throwing her into their five-month-old son’s TV and bouncy castle while begging him to stop.
An arrest warrant for Stacy describes how he left Evans “like a rag doll” in the Nov. 13 incident at Evans’ home in Oakland, Florida.
But this was just the latest in a series of domestic disturbances to which police responded from August, according to allegations made in police reports obtained by The Sun.

A freedom of information request revealed that there were at least two other incidents involving Stacy in August and September.
On August 16, it is reported that Stacy and Evans were arguing over rent, which Stacy demanded that Evans pay him back.
“When Stacy left the house and during the time she was on the scene, Stacy continued to stare menacingly as she cried,” the police report claimed.
However, there were no reports of physical assault from Stacy or Evans in the incident.
But on September 26, Evans called the police again, claiming that Stacy hit her in the face with a pile of mail while holding their baby.
When officers arrived, Evans was “found emotionally distraught with tears in her eyes as she held her baby.”

According to the report, there were no visible marks, but “she has a ringing in her ear on the side where she was hit.”
“The accused, Zachary Stacy Sr., committed domestic violence when he deliberately and deliberately punched his child’s mother in the face against her will with a pile of mail,” the report said.
In a statement, Oakland police said the victim “refused to press charges or prosecute the accused,” but the department ‘anyway’ filed a domestic violence complaint with the Public Prosecution Service.
Stacy has been charged with aggravated assault and criminal mischief for the November 13 incident.

The incident started when the former football player visited his son at his ex’s house around 2 p.m. on Saturday. But once he got there, he got jealous and attacked his ex, hitting her on the head several times before dragging her off the couch and throwing her into the TV, which then fell on her.

Evans posted the horrific video to social media by Evans, claiming in an Instagram story that Stacy’s friends hid him after the incident.
Stacy was arrested by police upon arrival at Orlando International Airport on an inbound flight from Nashville on Nov. 21 after Evans pleaded for help to track him down.
Oakland police had said in a statement before his arrest that he flew from Nashville to Orlando “with the intent to turn himself in.”
He was released from Orange County Jail on $10,000 bail.
Evans claimed Stacy was “voluntarily hospitalized for a mental illness” and on medication for a month last March.
Speaking to DailyMail.com Thursday, Evans didn’t think Stacy’s football career was responsible for his mental health issues, but that it may have made them worse.
Stacy was drafted in the fifth round from Vanderbilt University by the St. Louis Rams in 2013. He played three seasons in the NFL, two for the Rams – before the franchise moved to Los Angeles – and one for the New York Jets.
Evans claimed in a restraining order filed last week that Stacy had abused her since she was pregnant with her son, saying the attacks are escalating and that “he will kill me.”
Photos from an alleged incident in August show cuts and bruises all over her body after what she believes was an argument over rent money.
“He physically assaulted me several times because he wanted back the money he gave me for our rent,” she wrote in the restraining order.
“He punched me on the legs, punched me, picked me up by the arms and threw me against my window, it broke. I had glass in my feet that I removed myself,” Evans continued.
