In a highly disturbing video, former NFL running back Zac Stacy was seen brutally attacking his ex-girlfriend.
Many folks might find the video extremely difficult to watch.
To make the situation even worse, Stacy and his ex-girlfriend’s five-month-old son was in the room for the incident.
This video of Zac Stacy is absolutely horrid. There are no words for this

TMZ obtained the video and also offered some information about the situation.
“TMZ Sports has learned … the disturbing altercation happened at 30-year-old Stacy’s ex-girlfriend’s home in Florida on Saturday,” the website reported.
“We’re told Stacy became furious and aggressive with his ex during an argument … and that’s when video shows the former fifth-round pick swinging at her head before yanking her off a couch, tossing her across the room and into the TV.”
The victim offered some more insight into the incident in an application for a restraining order.
“He punched me several times in the head!” the victim wrote in a restraining order application obtained by TMZ. “I begged him to stop because the baby was on the couch just a few feet from where he punched me.
“… He then picked me up and threw me into my TV. 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.”
Many members of the NFL community have taken to social media to make their feelings known about the matter.
For the record…. Any man that puts his hands on a woman is a coward!
Short of defending yourself in a life or death situation, there is no excuse!

Stacy’s actions are clearly indefensible, and there will surely be massive consequences.
