Stacy, 30, was arrested Thursday evening at the Orlando International Airport after arriving on a flight from Nashville, Tennessee, according to a statement from the Orlando Police Department. He was wanted on an arrest warrant for aggravated assault and battery in a domestic violence case in the town of Oakland, just west of Orlando.
Oakland Police responded to Stacy’s ex-girlfriend’s home on Nov. 13, according to the warrant. The woman told officers Stacy had come to the house earlier to see their 5 month old son. At one point, Stacy and the woman started arguing, which led to Stacy physically attacking the woman, police said.
Security video from inside the house shows Stacy repeatedly punching the woman and throwing her into a TV and onto the floor, police said. Investigators noted in the report that the woman had tried to remain calm throughout the attack, but begged Stacy to stop. The case gained attention this week after the woman posted the security video on her Instagram account.
On Friday, a judge set Stacy’s bail at $ 10,150 on aggravated assault and battery charges. Stacy was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the 2013 NFL Draft. He played two seasons there followed by one with the New York Jets.
Stacy’s attorney did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment from The Associated Press.
