Wife of PGA golfer Lucas Glover arrested on domestic violence charges

Krista Glover, the wife of former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover, was arrested Saturday on charges related to domestic violence during the weekend of The Players Championship. Following the tournament's third round, Krista Glover was arrested and charged with domestic battery and resisting arrest.

An unredacted version of the police report indicated that Lucas and his mother, Hershey, were the victims in this assault.

Glover told police his wife yells at him and calls him a "loser", before starting altercations with him when he has bad rounds on the golf course.

Police noted multiple lacerations to both Lucas and his 62-year-old mother, who had blood on her shirt and said she was hit in the chest.

Her husband, Lucas Glover, won the 2009 U.S. Open.

Glover released a statement about the incident on Tuesday.

Police reportedly saw abrasions and other injuries on Hershey Glover when they arrived to arrest Krista Glover.

She started an altercation with him that day, according to the report, and she started it after allegedly drinking all day and in front of their kids and his mother, the document said.

The police report said Lucas was exhausted of these altercations, but simultaneously tried to dissuade officials from arresting Krista.

Police said Conley Glover "resisted" being brought to the patrol auto and being placed inside, including an attempt to "wrap her legs and feet around the door and frame of the vehicle".

"Wait till the [PGA] tour hears about this", she reportedly screamed at officers. If found guilty, she could face up to one year in jail on each misdemeanor count. Wait till I talk with the judge, you will be f***ng fired over this'.

While trying to put her in the auto, Krista allegedly wrapped her legs and feet around the door and frame of the auto, preventing the lower half of her body from getting into the vehicle.

Glover confirmed on Twitter there was an altercation.

"Regrettably, although Krista was charged, we are comfortable that the judicial system is able to address what actually happened", the statement said in part.

Glover and his wife, who were married in 2011, have two children, a two-year-old son and a daughter who turned five on Monday (per the AP).
