A former NFL running back is reportedly on the run from Florida authorities for brutally attacking and beating the mother of his 5-month-old son.

Video footage of the altercation shows Zac Stacy, who easily weighs over 200 pounds, grabbing his child’s mother, who’s reportedly his ex-girlfriend, by her shirt, roughly pulling her off a couch and slamming her into a flat-screen television.

Their son can be heard crying in the background as the ex begs for mercy.

“Listen, it wasn’t …,” she tries pleading as she’s lying on the ground.

“You think that was OK?” Stacy asks her as he approaches her again.

“Now, I do not. Please, please, please!” the woman pleads.

“You thought that was OK, then you gon’ ruin a relationship, talking about I’m destructive?” Stacy replies before slapping her, pulling her up, and seemingly preparing to assault her again as he says, “Bi–h!”

It’s at this point that the video cuts off.

Watch via a woman claiming to be the ex’s best friend:

According to court documents reviewed by TMZ, the conflict was prompted by jealousy.

“In the docs, Stacy’s ex claims the football player came over her house around 2 PM on Saturday … to see his son. While there, she claims he flew into a jealous, violent rage,” the tabloid outlet reported Wednesday.

“He punched me several times in the head! I begged him to stop because the baby was on the couch just a few feet from where he punched me,” the ex reportedly wrote in a restraining order application.

“He then picked me up and threw me into my TV. The TV began to fall abd [SIC] 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.”

It appears the video cut off right before Stacy slammed her into their son’s bouncy seat.

According to TMZ, the former NFL running back then said “I love you” to the boy and fled the scene.

“I fear for my life and my children’s lives,” the ex reportedly wrote in the restraining order.

“The woman says she went to the hospital … where she was treated for a possible head wound, as well as bumps and bruises,” according to TMZ.

Stacy isn’t the first NFL player to beat a significant other. The digital media company Ranker maintains a list of “NFL players arrested for domestic violence,” and the list literally goes on and on and on — in that as you scroll down, further examples pop up, seemingly endlessly. But for good reason.

“As much as people love the NFL, one of the biggest problems that the league has faced over the years is that its players are more likely, at least publicly, to commit domestic violence,” the digital media company admits.

Yet the NFL seems uninterested in tackling this crisis, according to an article published at the start of the year by the Greater Baltimore Medical Center. As an example, it cited the fairly recent case of former Seattle Seahawks running back Chad Wheeler.

“‘Chad Wheeler, former offensive tackle for the Seattle Seahawks, beats his girlfriend in a blind rage to the point that even he’s surprised to see her alive.’ Unfortunately, these days, this type of headline isn’t shocking. It is almost commonplace within the professional football community, but the NFL doesn’t seem to care. Although the Seattle Seahawks attempted to address the situation, they could have done a lot more. And the NFL has yet to weigh in – but is that really surprising?” the article reads.

“At 6”7’, 310-pounds, Wheeler choked, beat, and dislocated the arm of his 5”9’, 145-pound girlfriend until she lost consciousness. It isn’t the first time Wheeler has done something like this. And it’s certainly not the first time that the Seahawks and NFL are hearing about his behavior,” the article continues.

Meanwhile, the league remains committed to doubling, tripling and quadrupling down on the “woke” claptrap that’s hurt both its credibility and its ratings.

According to Deadline, this year’s Sunday Night Football season opener on Sept. 12th “drew an audience of 17.6 million on NBC,” which was “a slip of about 4% from the 2020 season opener and a new multi-year low for the network and league’s mothership show.”

Stacy was reportedly drafted by the St. Louis Rams in 2013 and switched to the New York Jets in 2015. According to TMZ, he’s “been out of the league ever since.”
