MEMPHIS, TN - MARCH 24: Zac Stacy #20 of the Memphis Express looks on during the game against the Birmingham Iron at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium on March 24, 2019 in Memphis, Tennessee. Memphis won 31-25 in overtime.

Ex-NFL player Zac Stacy was arrested in Florida Thursday night and currently is in jail just days after home video footage surfaced of him brutally beating his ex-girlfriend in front of their five-month-old son.

Stacy reportedly went on the run after striking Kristin Evans, the mother of their 5-month-old son, and throwing her into a television.

Law enforcement says, per gossip site TMZ, that Stacy was arrested shortly after flying to Florida from Tennesse on Thursday.

According to police, Stacy flew from Nashville to Orlando “with the intention of turning himself in,” and was taken into custody by the Orlando PD without incident, per the outlet.

On Thursday, officials announced they were charging Stacy with two felonies, aggravated assault, and criminal mischief per the Huffington Post.

Evans said in a restraining order that she was hospitalized with bumps and bruises and that Stacy had been abusing her since she became pregnant with their child last year, the New York Post noted.

Evans spoke out to FOX News on the incident telling the outlet that this attack was it for her. “This was just the last straw I would say. I really truly feel that if it continues that he would kill me,” said Evans.

If convicted, Stacy could face 15 years in prison.
