Anna Benson, the now-estranged wife of former top overall pick Kris Benson, has been arrested in Georgia for felony assault on the former Pirates and Mets pitcher, According to TMZ, Anna Benson showed up at Kris Benson's apartment last night and threatened to hit him with a metal baton before pulling out a handgun and demanding money from her future ex-husband. She was apparently wearing a bulletproof vest during the confrontation. Kris eventually told Anna she'd get the money before she left, and Kris followed up by leaving the residence himself and calling the police. Anna was arrested this morning and charged with two counts of felony aggravated assault, one count of criminal trespass, and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Anna has always seemingly had a screw loose, but she was never really violent until her stint on Baseball Wives two years ago. Looking at her mugshot to the right, she clearly hasn't aged well at all, and you have to wonder just where exactly things went wrong for her. Kris hasn't played in the majors since a 14 inning stint with the Diamondbacks during 2010, though he did make over $39 million in his career according to Baseball-Reference (not including his $2 million signing bonus that Pittsburgh gave him after drafting him first overall out of Clemson in 1996).
