Anna Benson arrested after raiding Kris Bensonís house with a gun, bulletproof vest
NBC Sports ^ | July 8, 2013, 4:32 PM EDT | Craig Calcaterra

Remember back in the day when Anna and Kris Benson were, for lack of any other better candidates, baseball’s first couple? Kris had a couple of good years with the Pirates that he parlayed into a nice contract with the Mets. Anna was the dancer-turned baseball wife who posed in gentlemen’s magazines and said audacious things in public. Things like, if Kris ever cheated on her she’d sleep with the entire Mets roster. We all got laughs at that stuff.

...

Former “Baseball Wives” star Anna Benson – the estranged wife of ex-pitcher Kris Benson – was arrested this morning in Georgia … after allegedly raiding Kris’ apartment with a gun and a metal baton, all while wearing a bulletproof vest. According to law enforcement, Kris — who filed for divorce last year — reported that Anna showed up in a rage last night after being forced by the court to vacate their marital home.

They were playing the 911 call on the radio this afternoon. He sounded pretty calm considering his soon to be ex was upstairs with a Taurus Judge, a metal baton and wearing a bullet proof vest demanding $30,000. Should have changed the locks and turned the alarm on.

It's the sort of thing we relationship counseling professionals know to look for that hint at a failing relationship. BTT

Smoking hot, and completely nuts. She's GUARANTEED to be spectacular in bed. The whole killing you after, though is a drawback.

The comment was in jest. It's a play on the fact that she is clearly a loon and the FreeRepublic tradition of judging guilt or innocence of a woman based on looks.

You undoubtedly disapprove of this humor, calling it immature.

Put her in a straight jacket and I’d hit it!

Guilt to be determined upon a complete examination of the anatomy.

Those pictures are a long time and quite a few pounds ago. She was on VH1's Baseball Wives last year - and based on her performance on the show she had already completely lost her mind by then.

She's surely hot looking!!

Good in bed?

How would you know?

Experience tells me...beauty doesn't translate to hot in bed.

Ex stripper soon-to-be-ex-wife in a bullet proof vest packing a Taurus Judge asking for $30,000 in cash not in Florida. Sounds like it shouldn’t be a ping.

She was holding him at gunpoint and let him go downstairs to get her a cigarette, at which point he promptly called 911 and headed into the woods.

Apparently she's not that hard to trick. Survival chances: good.

“Good in bed? How would you know?”

I am one of FR’s token former professional atheletes.

I have, sadly, direct experience with women who look like this and poise in “lad” magazines, work as strippers, and the like.

They equate sex with affection and are very in need of male sexual attention. Never met one that wasn’t absolutely fantastic at the physical acts.

They are also crazy, will break crap, lie, cheat, manipulate, steal, and will gladly rob you blind or leave you for the next big thing.

I had several VERY close calls and grew up and started acting like a man, not a rutting bull somewhere along the line.

Way back in my "bad" days I lived with a girl that had "gone off the rails" - I would push my dresser in front of the locked bedroom door so I could get a decent nights sleep.
She was a great cook, and gorgeous, too - so it was tough to leave....

In 2000, Martin was involved in a domestic abuse incident with a woman named Shawn Haggerty. She told police that they were married. Martin was already married to another woman at the time, making this a case of bigamy. Martin claimed that he did not realize the ceremony in Las Vegas (with Haggerty) was legally binding

The Fail is strong with that one.
