ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Former NFL player Zac Stacy was back in an Orange County courtroom Wednesday to have a judge reconsider the conditions of his bond following accusations of a violent attack on Stacy’s ex-girlfriend.
The hearing was scheduled to allow the victim in the attack, Kristin Evans, to address the court, something which she was not able to do during Stacy’s original bond hearing.
“I was slapped, punched, literally picked up and thrown into my TV,” Evans said. “My injuries from this incident are serious and likely permanent from what I have been told.”
Evans requested that the judge place Stacy on home confinement and asked that his bond be increased.
Stacy’s bond was originally set at $10,150 and he was also ordered to stay away from the victim and surrender his passport, records show. The judge ultimately decided not to increase the bond amount but ordered Stacy not to return to the state of Florida unless he was coming for a court appearance.
Stacy and his attorney told the court the former NFL running back would be living with his mother in Alabama, but would also be entering an inpatient mental health program in Colorado for 30 days starting on Dec. 1.
Stacy is facing aggravated battery and criminal mischief charges. He is accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend in her home, records show. Investigators said the incident was captured on surveillance video in the victim’s Oakland home, near Orlando, on Nov. 13.
Stacy was arrested Thursday, Nov. 18, and bonded out of jail the following Saturday.
The state attorney’s office officially charged Stacy with one count of aggravated battery and felony battery on Jan. 26.
