Former “Baseball Wives” star Anna Benson was arrested in Georgia on Monday after allegedly raiding her husband’s apartment with a gun and a metal baton, while wearing a bulletproof vest.

TMZ reports that ex-pitcher Kris Benson, who filed for divorce last year, called police to report that his estranged wife “showed up in a rage last night after being forced by the court to vacate their marital home.” Kris went on to claim that Anna arrived and immediately whipped out an “expandable metal baton,” threatening to hit him.

The website then reports that Kris told police that Anna then pulled out a handgun and demanded money from him.

According to the police report, Kris calmed the situation by telling Anna he would get her the money following the altercation, but instead left the home and called police instead.

Anna was subsequently arrested and booked on four counts, two counts of felony aggravated assault with a weapon, one count of criminal trespass, and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
