Wife of former Clemson golfer Lucas Glover arrested on battery charge

Wife of former Clemson golfer Lucas Glover arrested on battery charge

Krista Glover, the 36-year-old wife of professional golfer Lucas Glover, was arrested at a rented house in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida on Saturday, May 12, after she allegedly verbally and physically assaulted Lucas 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.

The three-time victor on the PGA Tour told officers that his wife had been drinking.

Officials also said that Krista stayed belligerent after her arrest and during the trip to the station grumbled: "this is why cops get shot in the face". Each charge carries a sentence of up to a year in jail. After being arrested, police say Krista Glover became combative and unruly and repeatedly kicked the auto door.

Lucas released a statement on Twitter this morning explaining the situation and asked for the public to respect their privacy.

The report said that when his mother, Hershey Glover, tried to intervene, Krista Glover started attacking her.




The deputies wrote in their report she resisted them and refused to get into the back seat of a squad vehicle by trying 'to tense her body and blocking herself from sitting down in the auto'.

And since he had a bad day alongside Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose at The Players, she allegedly went off on him at dinner time and showered him with insults, including "p***y" and 'loser, ' the incident report reads.

Krista Glover has been charged with the assault of her husband, PGA Tour golfer Lucas Glover. "You will lose your job. Wait till I talk with the judge, you will be f--ing fired over this".

Glover confirmed Monday on Twitter that an "argument" had occurred, saying, "Everyone is fine".

"Regrettably, although Krista was charged, we are comfortable that the judicial system is able to address what actually happened and Krista will be cleared in this private matter", he tweeted.

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). "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".
