*Well I just don’t know WHAT to think about this one. And I would sure appreciate your thoughts at the end.
We can understand when things don’t work out in a marriage, after a l-o-n-g while, you might start thinking about divorce. This was apparently the case with one couple – well, it was the case with the husband.
But here’s the thing. When he decided to let his wife in on the decision he had come to, which was to divorce her, he brought his new woman along to serve the divorce papers.
The wife went off…and kicked the new woman’s butt in the process.
Sharona Coach-Barnes is now in jail for assault because the authorities say she took her anger out on her husband’s girlfriend – who accompanied the man to her East Memphis home to deliver divorce papers.
Coach-Barnes is being held on $30,000 bond. The affidavit, which reads like a soap opera, states that the angry wife even pulled a gun on the other woman.
According to the affidavit, Derico Barnes served his ex with divorce papers, and brought his new girlfriend, Cherrita Evans, along.
People were quick to offer opinions once news of the beatdown hit the airwaves.
“I don’t see anything wrong with it,” said one neighbor. “They’re not together. He’s just letting his woman know there’s nothing to it. There’s nothing to her.”
Teisa Foster, another neighbor, gave an opposing opinion. “She should have got beat,” she said of Evans.
If this were a contest, Foster would’ve won, because a beatdown is exactly what Evans got.
Police say Coach-Barnes started punching Evans and then pepper-sprayed her. Evans and Derico took off running, but according to police, the ex wasn’t done yet. They say she enlisted her mother and brother, found her husband and Evans, and pointed a gun at them as she drove by.
Of course there are those who understand Coach-Barnes’ actions on an emotional level. “Any kind of business that he has with her, he needs to do by himself until they get a proper divorce,” Foster said. “She has no rights in that.”
Others said there is never an excuse for violence.
“She didn’t do anything to her,” one woman said. “She needs to go to jail.”
Your thoughts? Do you think the ex was right in taking it out on the girlfriend. I think its the husband’s dumb ass that she should have kicked.
