"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."

The report indicated that the woman visited the hospital after the incident and had visible bruises. Zac Stacy reportedly fled the scene before the authorities arrived and at the time of this article, is wanted on aggravated assault charges.
