TMZ- Former NFL running back Zac Stacy brutally attacked the mother of his child, punching her in the head before slamming her into a television as their 5-month-old son sat feet away ... and the terrifying incident was captured on video. TMZ Sports has learned ... the disturbing altercation happened at 30-year-old Stacy's ex-girlfriend's home in Florida on Saturday.
We're also told the woman filed for a restraining order Monday -- for her and her son. In those docs, Stacy's ex claims the football player came over to her house around 2 PM on Saturday ... to see his son. While there, she claims he flew into a jealous, violent rage."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 woman wrote in the restraining order application.
She continued ... "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."
Gonna keep this one pretty simple because that video was fucking disgusting. There are unlimited reasons why a young couple can argue but not one of them should result in physical violence or whatever you want to call the shit I just watched all unfold in front of a baby that should result in hard jail time. The amount of stuff like this that goes unreported, undocumented, and/or unpunished in the world is one of those things that makes your stomach turn when you think about it. The Ray Rice video is still burned into my head since it was the first time I ever saw something like this play out which then shined a light on the horror of domestic violence to the public as well as the impact it can have on children raised in such a home that could lead to more incidents in the future.
