‘Baseball Wife’ Anna Benson Arrested: Listen to Kris Benson’s Petrified 911 Call

Remember the outlandish wife of former pitching bust Kris Benson? No?! That’s alright, we’ll surely recap… and stop calling me damn Shirley.

Despite being married to perhaps the most boring individual in all of sports, Anna Benson was arguably the most polarizing figure in the entire WAG kingdom. In fact, she essentially set the standard for WAG-dom with her provocatively enticing photo shoots and controversial comments. In case you’ve forgotten, the illustrious term WAG stands for wives and girlfriends, though should more properly stand for wannabes and gold diggers. Ouch?

An unknown stripper when she met minor leaguer Kris Benson in 1998, Benson soon earned a reputation as baseball’s sexiest wife after dominating her section in FHM and magazine. She then made headlines by more strangely threatening to sleep with the entire New York Mets organization if Kris ever cheated on her during a Howard Stern interview.

But wait, there’s more…

In July of 2005, she was ejected from the World Series of Poker for “excessive cursing” on behalf of, you guessed it, GoldDiggerPoker.com!

She even came to a G-rated Mets Christmas party dressed as a sexy Mrs. Claus, while forcing branch-thin KB to dress as the dominant Santa. And to make matters worse, once accused former Mets GM Omar Minaya of putting together an All Latino Team… though as a Mets fan I’m not sure she was incorrect on that front (hey, there’s a first time for everything?).

Before proceeding, we must cleanse the palate of excessive nutcase-ness. To recharge the engines and clear the mind, here is Kris Benson’s by-far most exciting video ever…

Phew, now let’s proceed…

It seems the snowballing lunatic has finally hit a wall. Reported by ESPN late last night, Benson’s estranged WAG was “arrested Monday and charged with two counts of aggravated assault and battery with a gun, possession of a firearm in a felony and criminal trespass.” According to the report, she was wearing a bulletproof vest and carrying a handgun, hatchet, expandable baton, and taser. But don’t worry folks, Anna claims she still loves Kris!

In the end, she gave Major League Baseball a dose of unique and entertaining sexiness for nearly a decade. Though it’s about time this whirling dervish of craziness is finally stopped. Before someone other than Kris gets hurt.
