Sara Evans filed for divorce from Jay Barker before he allegedly attempted to run over her with a car this past weekend. Barker was charged with one count of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Barker was booked into a Nashville county jail early Saturday morning. He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and placed on a $10,000 bond with a 12-hour hold due to it being a domestic violence case. He was released after posting bond.
According to the arrest affidavit, as Evans and the other person pulled into the driveway of a nearby home, Barker allegedly reversed his vehicle "at a high rate of speed attempting to hit them, but missed".
Sara and Jay have been married for 12 years and they have no children together.
Now, a look back at happier less complicated times for Sara...back in 2004 this was one of her biggest hits.
