'Baseball Wives' Star

Allegedly Used Gun to Demand $30K from Ex

'He's a F***ing P****'

7/9/2013 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former "Baseball Wives" star Anna Benson demanded $30,000 from her estranged husband when she busted into his Georgia home with a gun, a loaded ammo belt, and a bulletproof vest ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ.

As we reported, Benson was arrested Sunday for felony assault stemming from the incident ... but new details surrounding the arrest have just emerged.

According to the report, Anna's estranged husband (and former MLB pitcher) Kris Benson claims she threatened him with the handgun, demanding $30k in cash, and then smashed his computer with a metal baton.

Kris -- who filed for divorce from Anna last year -- told police she was "screaming and out of control" when she burst into his bedroom ... so he ran out of the house to hide in the woods, and called 911. Cops showed up soon after and when Kris told them Anna was armed, they formed a perimeter around the house. Officers eventually apprehended Anna on the back porch of the house.

According to the report, Anna told police she was angry and came over in the middle of the night to discuss money and other bones she had to pick -- like why he hadn't picked up their kids. She admitted to breaking his computer with the baton, but denied pulling out the handgun.

While searching her, police claim they found a loaded ammo belt and a knife. They also recovered the handgun at the scene.

As for the bulletproof vest, Anna claimed "it was a new model she was testing for a company" ... and that she "had to wear it for an extended time to get it to mold to her body."

According to the report, Anna insisted she didn't do anything wrong and was SHOCKED when cops placed her under arrest ... then called her husband "a f***ing p****."

As we first reported, Anna was subsequently booked on 4 counts ... 2 counts of felony aggravated assault with a weapon, 1 count of criminal trespass, and 1 count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime

I guess threatening to have sex with everyone from the top of the organization All Management, Players, Bat Boys, Janitors and everyone else on her husbands baseball team did not work so why not just use a gun?

Her Imperial and Royal Majesty    

If she was going to go through all that trouble, she should have asked for more than just 30,000.

I'm not sure that jail would be the best place for her. She may be better off locked up in a nuthouse.

She seems like a very charming young lady.

Hard to imagine any kind of decent dad wouldn't have fought her for primary custody. She's been a nutcase for years and he still trusted her with the kids?

Glad to see the court system working in a domestic case involving a woman assaulting a man although there wasn't much to dispute here..... this mentally unstable woman was heavily armed and broke into her ex husbands home. However, there are more cases than you think of domestic abuse involving women assaulting men. Men are highly unlikely to report the assault or file criminal charges out of embarrassment and shame. I know because I'm the ER doctor who medically treats these men and encourages them involve the legal system. Women, please do not misunderstand me. There IS a much higher incidence of man to woman domestic battery, but the incidence of battered men is rising as well.

What a nut job. Lock her up and take away her kids. She not only put her own life in jeopardy, but her kids could have easily ended up with a dead mother if the cops shot her.

I'm hoping the father of her children steps up and takes custody of their kids.
They need someone stable in their lives.
