Things took a tumultuous turn in 2022 when Barker was arrested near their Nashville home following an alarming incident involving Evans. Reports detailed how Barker allegedly attempted to hit Evans’ car, with her inside, during a heated encounter.


Evans recounted the incident, stating that she was leaving a neighbor’s party and had hopped into a friend’s car when Barker aggressively maneuvered his vehicle, narrowly missing them. Witnesses corroborated Evans’ claim that Barker was deliberately trying to harm them.

After driving away, Barker returned and was subsequently arrested after Evans called the police. Initially charged with felony aggravated assault, Barker eventually pleaded guilty to misdemeanor reckless endangerment in June 2022. He was sentenced to probation and mandated to attend a Batterer’s Intervention Program for domestic violence, alongside surrendering any firearms he owned.

Despite the turmoil, Evans revealed on her podcast, “Diving in Deep with Sara Evans,” that she and Barker have reconciled. She opened up about the challenges they faced in their marriage, reflecting on Barker’s behavioral changes and struggles with addiction.


Evans candidly addressed the 2022 incident, describing the fear it instilled in her and their child. Despite the distress, she attempted to warn Barker before his arrest out of concern for his well-being.

Following Barker’s arrest, the couple began rebuilding their relationship, with Barker committing to therapy and counseling as part of their reconciliation process. Evans emphasized the unique nature of their situation and cautioned against generalizing their experience, urging individuals to prioritize their safety and well-being in relationships.

Despite the rocky road, Evans expressed optimism about their future together, attributing their reconciliation to divine intervention. However, she underscored the importance of setting boundaries and following one’s instincts in navigating relationships.
