    COBB COUNTY, Ga. - Anna Benson, who is on probation after pleading guilty to attacking her ex-husband, was arrested on charges of trespassing, loitering and theft, Channel 2 Action News has learned.

    According to an arrest warrant obtained by Channel 2’s Tom Regan, the charges stem from an April 16 incident, in which Benson allegedly trespassed at a home in Mableton and stole mail.

    Benson, currently in jail, was scheduled to appear at a probation revocation hearing in Cobb Superior Court in Marietta Wednesday.

    She did not show up in court.

    A representative for the district attorney said the judge signed a consent decree, allowing Benson to apply to mental health court.


    In 2013, police say Benson entered the home of her estranged husband Kris Benson, a former professional baseball player, wearing a bullet proof vest and was armed with a knife and police-issued baton.

    Authorities say she smashed a computer and demanded $30,000.

    Benton later plead guilty, spent four months in jail and was sentenced to 15 years of probation.

    Benson is a former adult nightclub dancer and actress in the VH-1 reality show “Baseball Wives.”

    She and her former husband have three children together.
