MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A woman is in jail after her husband came to serve her divorce papers and brought his new girlfriend along with him.

Sharona Coach-Barnes faces assault charges after police say she took her anger out on her husband’s new lady.

Coach-Barnes is being held on $30,000 bond.

The affidavit reads like a soap opera, and police say Coach-Barnes was so angry, she even pulled a gun on the other woman.

Police say Coach-Barnes lost her cool at a home in the 4400 block of Wooddale in east Memphis.

According to an affidavit, Derico Barnes served her with divorce papers, and he brought his new girlfriend, Cherrita Evans, along.

“I don’t see anything wrong with it,” one neighbor said. “They’re not together. He’s just letting his woman know there’s nothing to it. There’s nothing to her.”

Another neighbor, Teisa Foster, felt differently.

“She should have got beat,” she said of Evans.

That’s exactly what happened.

Police say Coach-Barnes started punching Evans and even pepper-sprayed her.

She and Derico took off running, but police say she wasn’t done yet. They say she got her mother and brother, found her husband and Evans, and pointed a gun at them as she drove by.

Some said they understand why she would act out so violently.

“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.”
