Former Baseball Wives star Anna Benson has made her way into the headlines once again.

According to TMZ, the 37-year-old Benson was arrested on Monday morning after an altercation with her estranged husband, former MLB pitcher Kris Benson.

Kris, who filed for a divorce from the former FHM model last year, reportedly told police that Anna showed up at his home in a rage on Sunday night after the court ordered her to vacate their marital home. According to Kris, she was armed with an "expandable metal baton" and a gun. 

At one point, Anna pulled the handgun on Kris and demanded that he give her money, per the TMZ report. To top it all off, she was allegedly wearing a bulletproof vest during the incident

Kris reportedly told Anna that he was going to get her the money that she demanded, but called the police instead.     

Anna has been charged with four counts—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.

This isn't the first time Anna has made headlines with erratic behavior. The reality TV starlet made waves while on the show Baseball Wives when she threatened Chuck Knoblauch's wife, Cheri Knoblauch, with a stun gun and adult toy, according to a separate report from TMZ.

Kris, the No. 1 pick in the 1996 MLB draft, last appeared with the Arizona Diamondbacks—his fifth professional team—in 2010. The couple wed in 1999, the same year Kris made his big-league debut for the Pittsburgh Pirates, and went on to have three children together. 

Anna filed for a divorce in 2006, but later withdrew the petition.
