Zac has truly turned his life around after getting into trouble

According to a Reading Eagle story published in January 2014, Zac spoke at a gathering at Alvernia University and revealed he is a recovering alcoholic who used to abuse illegal and prescription drugs.

Zac apparently once complained of a pain in his side and asked doctors to remove his gall bladder so he could have access to heavy painkillers. He was also thrilled to receive drugs after a brain tumor was removed from his head.

The article says Zac snorted and smoked OxyContin, shot heroin intravenously, smoked crack and did "whippets," which is inhaling bursts of nitrous oxide for a short-lived high.

Zac was eventually arrested for possession of crack and driving while intoxicated, and then he decided to turn his life around.
