After Anna Benson was arrested for allegedly storming her ex-husband’s house with a gun, a judge granted Kris Benson full custody of the couple’s kids and revoked Anna’s visitation rights.
The former MLB pitcher was also issued an emergency restraining order against his wife former model after the incident. Police said Anna Benson broke into her ex-husband’s home with a gun and bullet-proof vest, threatening him.
The couple divorced in 2012, and Kris was given primary custody of their three kids.
After the incident this week, Anna was arrested and is being held without bond on four counts, including aggravated assault with a gun. She faces up to 20 years if convicted.
On Wednesday Anna Benson defended herself, saying she still loved Kris.
“I’m a good girl, a nice girl,” Anna told the New York Post, which sent a reporter to interview her in jail. “I would never hurt [Kris]. I am still in love with him.”
Anna also said she had a good reason for wearing the bullet-proof vest.
“My plan is to drive around the Southeast to the different gun shows and see what is out there and what is cool,” Anna told the Post. “The problem is that I don’t have any money to start my business, and a lot of the stuff I can’t tell the investors about because it is top-secret military and Department of Defense stuff.”
In addition to revoking her custody of her three children, a judge ruled that Anna Benson must undergo a psychological evaluation.
Anna Benson once revealed in an interview that she and Kris had sex in a stadium parking lot while fans waited outside the tinted-window car for autographs.
