Jay Barker, the estranged husband of country singer Sara Evans, was found guilty of misdemeanor reckless endangerment on Thursday morning (June 9) in Nashville. The charge was a reduction from the initial felony charges he faced after a January incident near her house in Nashville.
Barker was arrested on Jan. 15 on charges that he’d tried to ram a car Evans was riding in with his car. The 4AM arrest came after he allegedly tried to back his vehicle into hers as she was being driven home from a party in the neighborhood. He reportedly fled the scene at first, but later returned to talk to police. They arrested him on felony aggravated assault charges and set his bond at $10,000.
