Sara Evans’ husband, Jay Barker, was arrested and charged with felony assault on Saturday morning (Jan. 15), according to the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office.

The 49-year-old sports radio personality, who hosts Tide 100.9’s The Jay Barker Show, was arrested in Nashville, Tennessee and charged with one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

According to an affidavit obtained by CBS42, Evans was heading home from a gathering at her neighbor’s house in the passenger side of a friend’s car to ride across the street to her house. The report states that when they were passing the driveway, Barker was “reversing his vehicle at a high rate of speed attempting to hit them, but missed.”

Evans reportedly contacted police after the incident when Barker allegedly drove away. Police say Barker later returned to speak with them prior to issuing a warrant for his arrest.

Evans and the unnamed witness claim that Barker was intentionally trying to hit them.

According to public records, Barker, the former Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback, whose real name is Harry Jerome Barker, was booked into the Davidson County Jail at 4:52 a.m. on Saturday morning and was placed on a 12-hour hold for domestic violence.

Barker was released from the jail just before 7:30 p.m. after posting a $10,000 bond.

No additional details about his arrest have been revealed, however, Barker is scheduled to appear in court on March 22 to settle the case. This story is still developing.

Throughout Barker’s career in the NFL, he has played for the New England Patriots, Carolina Panthers, and the Green Bay Packers. In addition, he also played for the Toronto Argonauts in the Canadian Football League.

Evans and Barker were initially introduced by a mutual friend. They were both going through divorces and bonded over their similar life situations. The pair tied the knot on a farm just outside of Nashville on June 14, 2008.

While Evans and Barker share no children together, they lived with their combined seven children, however, according to a report from ABC33/40, the affidavit also states that the couple is married but are separated and currently living separately.

The “Suds In The Bucket” singer has three children from her previous marriage, and the former football player has four children from his previous marriage to Amy DiGiovanna (1995 – 2007). 

Evans was previously married to Craig Schelske, and went through a very public breakup and divorce.
