We already knew that Anna Benson was pretty crazy, but now we’re learning that the big-mouthed wife of former New York Mets pitcher Kris Benson was also wanted for alleged murder nearly 20 years ago.
Benson, then 19, living in Nashville and known as Anna Warren, allegedly told her boyfriend to “get rid of” another man who supposedly said something that upset her. The victim, 18-year-old Michael Evans, was found dead inside a Nashville apartment after being shot twice in the head, police determined.
“When the argument happened in the apartment, it was because the victim said something Anna didn’t like,” Assistant Chief Clyde Cowan said, per the Daily News.
The details behind Anna Benson’s alleged armed intrusion at ex-husband Kris’ home on Sunday are pretty frightening.
We passed along the report on Monday saying Anna was arrested on four counts, including two felonies, for going over to Kris’ home in the middle of the night with a gun and demanding money. As bad as that story sounds, it gets worse.
According to the police report, the wife of the former New York Mets pitcher went to her ex’s home wearing a bulletproof vest and carrying a handgun, metal baton, knife, and ammo belt. She allegedly threatened Kris with the gun and demanded $30,000.
Per the report, Anna denied pulling out the gun but admitted to breaking Kris’ computer with her baton. Kris told police that she pulled out the gun but did not aim it at him.
Kris told police he fled to the basement of the Marietta, Ga., home, called 911, and then ran out of the house to hide in the woods. Police supposedly found Anna on the back porch smoking a cigarette when they arrived at the home. When told Kris called the cops, she allegedly hissed “He’s a f—ing p—y.”
She’s a real charmer, isn’t she?
In addition to the Taurus handgun and red “Batman” folding knife, police also recovered a black hatchet, black baton, black taser, 13 rounds of ammunition, a bag of syringes and eight pills, per the New York Post.
Anna, 37, and Kris, 38, are in the process of divorcing. Kris filed for the divorce after Anna learned he was cheating on her.

As far as WAGs go, Anna Benson appears to be past her prime. Not only does it look like she’s lost her fastball, but she also has gone completely bonkers.
The ex-wife of former New York Mets pitcher Kris Benson was arrested Monday and booked on four counts, including two felony charges, for allegedly running up into her ex’s house carrying a gun and metal baton. She also reportedly was strapped with a bulletproof vest at the time of her intrusion.
The Bensons filed for divorce last year and Anna was recently ordered to vacate their marital home. She allegedly went to Kris’ home on Sunday night to get some money from him, and she was toting the gun and baton.
According to TMZ, Anna has been 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.
Benson is one of the most well known baseball WAGs of all time. She was a cast member on VH1’s Baseball Wives and notoriously swung a dildo at Chuck Knoblauch’s then wife Cheri. She also gained notoriety in New York when she said she would sleep with the entire Mets team if she ever caught her husband cheating on her. Incidentally, Kris filed for divorce last year after Anna caught him cheating. We’re still waiting for her to sleep with all the Mets, but something tells us the players might not be too interested.
In case you forgot, here’s what Benson looked like in her youthful modeling days:
In 2004, Anna Benson infamously told Howard Stern that she would sleep with the entire Mets team — including the ballboys — if she ever found out that her husband Kris were cheating on her. Her husband is no longer playing baseball, but if Anna wants to get her revenge, now’s her chance.
FOX 411 reported on Thursday that Kris filed for divorce from his wife Anna in March after she suspected that he was cheating on her.
Anna told FOX that Kris began having an affair with one of her close friends while she was recovering from foot surgery earlier this year. She says Kris, who is now a money manager, was supposed to be helping her friend with financial advice while the friend was going through a divorce. Instead, she discovered evidence in the form of Facebook messages (naturally) that the two were having an affair.
“The two of them instantly started having an affair,” Benson told FOX. “It started with sexy text messages and that kind of stuff.
“She and Kris are both denying the affair, saying it was just ‘inappropriate talk,’” said Benson. “But I picked up his iPad and and I hit the Facebook button and looked at his inbox messages, and there were all of these sexy messages between them. And you just don’t talk with somebody like that that you’re not having sex with.”
That was enough for Anna to suspect Kris was cheating on her. She claims it’s the second time that he has cheated. In 2006, she filed for divorce but never went through with it.
Kris had Anna sign a prenuptial agreement that she says only entitles her to $4,000 per month in child support. The couple has three children together while Anna has a child from another marriage. She’s now complaining about her living situation, claiming Kris tricked her into selling the family’s home with the promise that he’d help them buy a cheaper home.
Anna always said she’d do anything to make sure her children were taken care of, so maybe that means she’ll go back to stripping. And if not that, then hopefully dildo swinging can become a lucrative side business for her.
Maybe VH1’s “Baseball Wives” won’t be so bad. Granted I know absolutely nothing about it — nor did I know a single thing about “Basketball Wives” — but from the way it sounds things could get pretty crazy during the new season. Most of us have at least heard of Anna Benson by now. She’s the wife of former Mets pitcher Kris Benson who also happens to be insanely hot. If the first episode of baseball wives is any indication, she’s also insanely insane.
As TMZ.com shared with us, Anna got into an argument with Chuck Knoblauch’s wife Cheri while filming the first episode of the series. First, she pulled a stun gun out of her purse and placed it on the table. Believe it or not, that isn’t the most exciting thing she was keeping in her handbag. Anna then whipped out a 12-inch dildo and started swinging. Yeah.
Sources also told TMZ that some of the other wives are now threatening to quit the show because they can’t handle Anna’s behavior. All I get out of this is that Anna makes for great television. She carries around a stun gun, a dildo, and looks like this. What more could you ask for?
