Former Crimson Tide quarterback charged with felony domestic violence
Former Alabama football star Jay Barker was arrested on a felony domestic violence charge. An arrest affidavit says the former quarterback and sports radio host is accused of reversing his vehicle at a high rate of speed in an attempt to hit the victim and another person in another car. Barker was released from a Nashville jail Saturday night on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The former Alabama football standout is married to the victim, but they've been living separately. Barker's wife is country music singer Sara Evans. The former athlete did not answer a call from the AP seeking comment. Barker led Alabama to the national championship in 1993. The Crimson Tide’s victory over the Miami Hurricanes for title was considered a psychological boost for the team. It was the first college football national championship since the death of legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant in 1983.
