Baseball wife raids apartment with gun, bulletproof vest

Anna Benson used to be "baseball's hottest housewife" — or so said the magazine covers. Now she's an estranged baseball wife who was arrested and booked on trespassing, assault and gun-possession charges.


Her husband Kris Benson — who pitched for the Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Mets and Baltimore Orioles, among others from 1999-2010 — called police in Georgia reporting that Anna had allegedly attempted to raid his apartment on Sunday night with a gun and metal baton while wearing a bulletproof vest.
