Ex-NFL player Zach Stacy was arrested at Orlando airport after his ex-girlfriend shared a video of him throwing her at a TV.
Warning: The videos above contain footage of domestic violence.
Zack Stacy was arrested at Orlando International Airport last night. The former NFL player is facing felony aggravated assault and battery charges after his girlfriend shared footage of Stacey assaulting her at her Oakland home.
The video showed Stacey repeatedly hitting the victim in the head before being picked up and thrown into a television set. Stacy starts throwing something in the woman’s face while she’s on the floor before picking her up again and hitting her in a baby walker. The footage was captured from multiple angles by cameras at the victim’s home.
Police were called to the Oakland home around 2:30 a.m. and Stacey had fled the scene by then. Authorities arrested former Orlando Vanderbilt while he was running back upon arrival on a flight from Nashville.
“The Orlando Police Department has received information that NFL player Zack Stacy wanted to move out of Orange County/Oakland City because of the aggravated battery in a domestic violence case that was arriving at Orlando International Airport,” the outpatient clinics shared in a statement. “Our officers made contact with Stacey as he was getting off a flight from Nashville and put him in custody. Stacey was transferred to the Orange County Jail without incident.”
Stacy appeared before a judge this morning and his bond was set at $10,150. The judge also ordered that Stacey had no contact with the victim and that she had no firearms.
