PGA Tour pro Lucas Glover's wife charged with domestic battery

EXCLUSIVE: Golfer Lucas Glover's wife is arrested after 'attacking' him and calling him a 'p***y' and a 'loser' after he played a poor round at PGA Players Championship

The wife of three-time PGA Tour victor Lucas Glover was arrested Saturday night and charged with domestic violence and resisting arrest, according to an incident report from the St. Johns County Sheriff's department.

According to the incident report, she attacked her husband's mother when the latter tried to intervene during an altercation between Glover and his wife.

Police arrived to find Glover and his wife involved in a "verbal altercation" outside the residence.

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 police report, the arresting officer found probable cause to take Conley Glover into custody when he observed "injury to [Glover's] right arm" and "multiple lacerations" to both of his mother's arms, as well as "blood on her clothing and skin". His most notable win came in 2009, when he won the U.S. Open. She has a May 31 court date (per the AP) on the two charges, both misdemeanors.

According to the police report, Krista berated Lucas for his poor play at the Players Championship (he made the 36-hole cut bud did not escape the 54-hole cut aftera third-round 78), cursing at him repeatedly.

After the arrest, the golfer posted a message to Twitter telling fans that there was an altercation and asking for privacy on the matter.

He told deputies his wife had been drinking throughout the day Saturday.

The police report said Lucas was exhausted of these altercations, but simultaneously tried to dissuade officials from arresting Krista. She told deputies her mother-in-law attacked her, but she insisted "everything was fine", the report said.

Police officials noted in the report that Krista resisted them, refusing to get in the squad auto by "blocking herself from sitting down". He says he is comfortable the judicial system will be able to clear his wife. He chalked up the incident to an argument involving his wife and mother, and vowed that his wife would be exonerated. 'You will lose your job. "Wait till I talk with the judge, you will be f--ing fired over this". "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", the statement read.
