Golfer Lucas Glover's wife arrested on domestic violence charges

Golfer Lucas Glover's wife arrested on domestic violence charges

Lucas Glover, who dropped out of the tournament Saturday after shooting a 78, said the incident began with a bad round of golf.

She was charged with domestic battery and resisting arrest.

After deputies handcuffed Krista Glover, she became combative and tried to separate herself from the arresting deputy, the report says.

Saturday night, however, Lucas allegedly told deputies he was exhausted of all the altercations with his wife and couldn't take it anymore.

Lucas' mother intervened to get Krista to stop.

Both Lucas and his mother suffered visible but minor injuries in the altercation. After previously saying he would sign a sworn affidavit, the three-time Tour victor then "refused" to do so, and he claimed he "was not fighting with Krista" but was injured during the altercation between her and his mother. As she was being arrested, Mrs. Glover reportedly turned her anger toward police, resisting arrest as they were attempting to put her in the squad auto.

The wife of American golfer Lucas Glover was arrested and charged with domestic violence after the three-time PGA Tour victor failed to make the cut at the Players Championship on Sunday (NZ time), according to a police report in Florida.

According to statements given to deputies at the scene, the altercation began after Glover completed his round.

The incident unfolded about 7:30 p.m. Saturday evening at a home on Marsh Hawk Place about a mile from TPC Sawgrass, according to a copy of Glover's arrest report obtained by News4Jax.

"Lucas stated Krista acts this way and starts altercations all the time, but has never done so in front of his mom", the report said.

Lucas, the report says, told deputies his wife gets violent every time he doesn't play well in a major PGA tournament.

"According to the report, Lucas' mother had cuts on her arms and blood on her chest when cops arrived ... and said Krista had attacked both her and Lucas", the TMZ Sports report said.

After being arrested, police say Krista Glover became combative and unruly and repeatedly kicked the auto door.

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