Ex-NFL running back Zac Stacy is seeking treatment for "psychological and physical issues," Radar has exclusively learned.
The 30-year-old former athlete was recently hit with additional criminal charges stemming from another alleged physical altercation with the mother of his child, Kristin Evans, part of which was captured on video exclusively obtained by Radar.
Shortly after news of those new charges broke, Zac's attorney, Thomas Luka, informed us that his client was getting the help he needs while abiding by all court orders.
"Our office just recently learned of the new case being filed, but have not seen any evidence related to those charges as of yet," Luka explained, going on to add that Stacy already "completed inpatient treatment" and is now "participating in outpatient treatment for both psychological and physical issues."
According to Luka, his client "expresses great remorse for his past actions, and is currently abiding by all orders of the court at this time."
In response, Evans told Radar, "Prior to and during the incidents of abuse, Zac was in the care of the same facility over mental health issues exacerbated by his time playing in the NFL. My hope now is that he is receiving better care, and that he will continue on a course of self improvement, for the sake of him and our son."
Last week, Stacy was charged with three counts of misdemeanor domestic violence battery and two counts of misdemeanor criminal mischief over an August 16, 2021 incident with Evans that was followed by vandalization of her vehicle.
This is in addition to his felony battery charges stemming from a November 2021 incident, to which he pleaded not guilty.
A stomach-turning video from the August episode was captured by a security camera outside Kristin's Florida home. It's the same house Zac was seen brutalizing her in front of their infant son three months later.
The footage showed Zac walking abruptly through the front screen door, followed by a running and barefoot Kristin. After the screen slammed shut, loud clamors could be heard coming from inside the home, which were followed by the sounds of Zac ordering Kristin to "give me my money. All of it." Her voice trembled as she replied, "That's all I have."
"Give it to me," Zac ordered again, to which Kristin responded, "I'm trying!" Zac demanded, "Well, go get your phone and get it."
Kristin, still barefoot, was then seen bolting out the front door with her car keys and phone in hand, beelining toward her car, which was parked in the driveway. She appeared to be crying and in distress.
Moments later, Zac burst through the screen and approached the car. "Go get me my money," he barked again.
"I'm gonna break the window. Open the door," he was heard shouting, as the blue vehicle backed up slowly. Zac then got behind the moving car, causing Kristin to pump the breaks. "Open the door," he ordered again, as the car was seen trying to drive forward and through the front yard.
Zac then picked up one of the black trash bins lined up outside the house and hurled it into the right side of Kristin's car. She was then seen backing up, as he approached the car once again to mess with the windshield wipers. He stopped to look directly into the driver's seat and point. "Give me my money," he demanded.
That's where the video ended.
Kristin spoke to Radar about everything that transpired that day, claiming that she and Zac had gotten into an argument about their relationship. She told us he was "always upset about something" and that "things were becoming a little bit more hostile" between the two, so she told him something along the lines of, "We're basically roommates, so if you just wanna go about it like that, that's fine."
That's what set him off, claimed Kristin, prompting his incessant demands for his rent money back. She told us she was nearing the end of her maternity leave and did not have anything to give him.
"He had lived here for five months and never paid rent except for one time, and that was that month," she claimed, adding that Zac does not financially support their baby boy.
According to Kristin, the fight escalated and soon got physical. She said Zac started throwing objects around the house before he turned his sights to her.
She claims he pushed her, threw her, punched her, slapped her in the face, choked her, head-butted her while he had their child in his arms, threw her onto their bed while the baby was lying there, and threw her into a window, which broke. She said she ended up with glass in her back and feet, which she removed herself.
Kristin told us she sustained large bruises and cuts on her body. Additionally, she said she injured her ankle on the step outside her front door while running to her car.
Eventually, she called the cops, despite Zac's mother's alleged pleas. "His mom had called me and begged me not to press charges against him, not to have him arrested," she told us.
She said that was part of the reason she initially told the police that Zac had not hurt her.
Though she told us she'd never seen him cause intentional harm to their son, she said she was still "terrified" by the potential.
To help herself and others heal from similar situations, Kristin is hosting a therapeutic and interactive art exhibit at the Henao Contemporary Center in Orlando on March 31.
