Ex-Alabama QB Jay Barker Tried to Run Over His Wife Sara Evans With His Car

Former Alabama QB Jay Barker is in some trouble after a wild weekend.

According to the Tennessean, Barker was arrested in Nashville after he allegedly tried to hit a couple of people with a car on Saturday morning around 1:30 am.

Documents on file with Metro Nashville General Sessions Court said the people in the vehicle were leaving a party around 1:30 a.m. Saturday. As they 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,” according to the arrest affidavit.

The vehicle’s occupants contacted police after Barker drove away from the home, the affidavit states. Police made contact with Barker when he later drove by the house.

The passengers of the vehicle and an unidentified number of unnamed witnesses told police Barker “intentionally” tried to strike them.

Barker’s bond was set at $10,000. He is scheduled to appear in court on March 22.

Barker has been married to country music singer Sara Evans since 2008. The pair separated in April, court records show. Sara Evans, whose legal name is Sara Barker, filed for divorce in August. The divorce complaint listed “irreconcilable differences” and “inappropriate marital conduct” on the part of Jay Barker.

Barker led Alabama to the 1992 national championship, including a victory over No. 1-ranked Miami in the Jan. 1, 1993, Sugar Bowl. He is the school’s all-time winningest quarterback with a 35-2-1 record as a starter, and won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award in 1994 as a senior. He finished fifth in Heisman Trophy voting that year.

Barker has been charged with one count of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was held for 12 hours due to the charge being related to domestic violence but per jail records, it shows he was admitted at 4 am and let go at 7:30 am on a $10,000 bond.
