Rodney Atkins is denying that he tried to smother his wife with a pillow but he has filed for divorce from wife, Tammy Jo Atkins. Rodney was arrested on what he claims are false accusations of domestic violence. According to court documents filed in Williamson County, Tenn., Tammy called the police on the morning of Nov. 21, after what is being described as an alcohol-fueled night of fighting. Tammy Jo claims Rodney attempted to smother her with a pillow and threw her down a hallway -- right in front of their 10-year-old son. Rodney was subsequently arrested, and released on $2,500 bail.
