Ex-NFL Player Zackary “Zac” Stacy was arrested at the Orlando International Airport after he exited a flight from Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday.
Stacy is accused of savagely beating his ex-girlfriend Kristin Evans, the mother of his 5-month-old son.
The beating was captured on hidden cameras in Evans’ studio apartment in Oakland, Florida last Saturday.
Stacy fled the state after the attack, but he was persuaded by law enforcement to return to Florida to face the music.
Orlando Police took him into custody and he was booked into the Orange County Jail late Thursday, according to OPD spokesperson Heidi Rodriguez.
Stacy appears to have a smirk on his face in the mugshot released by the Orange County Jail.
In a series of Twitter posts this week, Evans complained that she was ignored by Oakland police officers who waited 4 days to issue a restraining order against the former NY Jets running back.
However, the OPD claims officers responded “within minutes” to Evans’ emergency call Saturday around 2:30 p.m. and determined “a domestic violence battery had taken place.”
Oakland police Detective Shawn Dozier claimed Stacy, “had fled the scene,” by the time officers arrived.
Evans took to Twitter to thank her supporters last night. She tweeted, “Personally I feel the state should have several more charges, but thank you to everyone who made this possible!!! We are halfway there.”

#zacstacy #domesticviolence The Florida justice system has been failing me. I have filed police reports previously and the State Attorney hasn’t picked them up. Other women fall victim to this everyday. Please call attention to the Florida State Attorney. pic.twitter.com/ugaXNdSfzR
