The wife of PGA Tour player Lucas Glover was arrested Saturday and charged with domestic violence and resisting arrest without violence, following an altercation with the 2009 U.S. Open victor and his mother.
Krista Glover, the wife of the surprise 2009 US Open victor, was arrested at a house where the couple was staying during the tournament, following an altercation with her husband.
Police reportedly saw abrasions and other injuries on Hershey Glover when they arrived to arrest Krista Glover.
Lucas, the report says, told deputies his wife gets violent every time he doesn't play well in a major PGA tournament.
The police report states Lucas' mom, Hershey, intervened during their argument, which was a huge mistake as Krista went after her and left lacerations on both of her arms.
Glover, who won the 2009 U.S. Open, married Krista in 2012.
Both charges filed against Krista Glover are misdemeanors but carry up to a 1-year sentence if convicted.
Krista forcefully attempted to escape as she was escorted to the police vehicle, "screaming while forcefully kicking the rear driver's side door" and causing damage to the auto, according to the report.
Lucas Glover put out a statement on Twitter revealing what happened.
Lucas told cops that Krista was drinking heavily that day before the fight.
"Wait till the tour (PGA) hears about this", she yelled, according to the report cited in The Mail.
The deputies wrote in their report she resisted them and refused to get into the back seat of a squad auto by trying "to tense her body and blocking herself from sitting down in the vehicle".
Lucas Glover's wife Krista was arrested after allegedly attacking him over his poor round at TPC Sawgrass. "Wait till I talk with the judge, you will be f--ing fired over this".
Lucas took to Twitter Tuesday to acknowledge there was argument and that "everyone is fine". She said she was trying to break up a fight between her son and his wife when her daughter-in-law attacked her instead.
Conley Glover spent that night in the St. Johns County Jail, and she was released Sunday on $2,500 bond. "Of course, we are here to provide support to Lucas and his family if needed; however, we are also respecting their request for privacy during this time".
