SMYRNA, Ga. -

The estranged wife of former Major League Baseball pitcher Kris Benson was arrested after allegedly raiding his Smyrna apartment with a gun and metal baton, TMZ reports.

Anna Benson, the former star of the reality show "Baseball Wives," was allegedly upset after a court order forced to vacate their marital home. Kris Benson, who filed for divorce last year, said that Anna, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, threatened to hit him with an "expandable metal baton." She then allegedly pulled out a handgun and demanded money.

Kris then told Anna that he would get her the money. He then left the house and called police, the police report says.

Anna Benson was arrested on Monday and charged with 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.
