There seems to be a re-occuring theme in the latest athlete divorce dramas. The estranged wives lashing out in violent confrontations and ending up in jail. Siohvaughn Funches and Pilar Sanders being two recent situations. Add former VH1 “Baseball Wives” star Anna Benson to that list.

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. Kris says Anna arrived and immediately whipped out an “expandable metal baton,” threatening to hit him.

Kris also said Anna was wearing a bullet proof vest and brandishing a gun. Clearly she was expecting a battle. Anna was arrested this morning and 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  a crime.

Ladies you’re going to have to find a different way to get those $$. These athletes are sending women to jail.
