Sara Evans has claimed that her estranged husband, Jay Barker, allegedly tried to run her over with his car early Saturday morning. Barker was arrested following the incident, and has since issued a statement.
According to an affidavit of Barker’s arrest, Evans was leaving a party in Nashville and returned to find Barker in her driveway. Evans, who was a passenger in a friend’s car, saw Barker “backing up his vehicle at a high rate of speed attempting to hit them but missed.”
Barker fled the scene but later returned and was placed under arrest and charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The former professional football player was placed on a 12-hour domestic violence hold at Davidson County Jail in Tennessee. He was released that night on $10,000 bond.
