Sara Evans’ estranged husband Jay Barker was arrested in Nashville Saturday after reportedly trying to hit the singer with his car.

Barker, a former NFL player, was charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to his arrest report. He was placed on a 12-hour domestic violence hold at Davidson County Jail and was released on bond Saturday night.

An affidavit of Barker’s arrest details the incident that took place around 1:30 a.m. Saturday at a home on Norwood Drive in Nashville where Evans had allegedly left a party at her neighbor’s house. The singer got in the passenger seat of a friend’s car to get a ride home when she saw Barker’s car in her driveway. Barker then began “backing up his vehicle at a high rate of speed attempting to hit them but missed.”

Barker reportedly left the scene before Evans contacted police, who arrived on scene around 1:30 a.m. The affidavit claims that Barker later returned to the scene where he was arrested.
