Sara Evans' Estranged Husband Jay Barker Arrested for Allegedly Trying to Hit Her With Car

The former University of Alabama quarterback is taken into custody after trying to slam his car into the car in which the country music singer was being driven.

AceShowbiz - Sara Evans' estranged husband Jay Barker apparently holds so much anger against her that he tried to harm her. The retired professional football player has been arrested for domestic violence after he allegedly tried to hit her with a car.

According to an affidavit obtained by WIAT, the alleged incident happened in the early morning of Saturday, January 15 after the singer left a party at a neighbor's house on Norwood Drive in Nashville. She hitched a ride with a friend and was passing her driveway when she spotted Jay parking there.

The "Born to Fly" singer then saw Jay "backing up his vehicle at a high rate of speed attempting to hit them but missed." He drove away before Sara got in touch with police, who arrived later at 1:30 A.M.

The report says Jay eventually returned to the scene, where he spoke with officers and was ultimately arrested. He was taken to the Davidson County Jail and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The former University of Alabama quarterback, who was listed as Harry Jerome Barker on the arrest report, was placed on a 12-hour hold for domestic violence, but released at 7:29 P.M. on Saturday after posting a $10,000 bond. He is due back in court on March 22.

Sara and Jay wed in June 2008. They have no children together, but Sara shares three children, Avery Jack, 22, Olivia Margaret, 18, and Audrey Elizabeth, 17, with her ex-husband Craig Schelske. Meanwhile, Jay has four children from his previous relationship(s). They are still married, but currently separated.

Jay was selected in the fifth round of the NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers, but did not make the team. He joined the New England Patriots in 1995, and the Carolina Panthers in 1996, but never played in a regular season game. The 49-year-old is currently an analyst for ESPN Radio and hosts a radio show, "The Jay Barker Show".
