The wife of golfer Lu­cas Glover was ar­rested by US po­lice fol­low­ing an al­leged al­ter­ca­tion with the for­mer US Open champ and his mother af­ter he failed to make the cut at The Play­ers Cham­pi­onship.

Krista Glover was ar­rested Satur­day night and booked into a Florida jail be­fore be­ing re­leased on $2,500 bail, the Mi­ami Her­ald re­ported on Wed­nes­day.

The 36-year-old is due back in court on May 31 to face charges of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence bat­tery and re­sist­ing ar­rest.

Ac­cord­ing to the news­pa­per, which ob­tained a copy of the po­lice re­port, Glover and his wife got into an al­ter­ca­tion at a rented Florida home af­ter he shot a 78 and missed the 54-hole cut at the tour­na­ment in Ponte Vedra Beach.

The golfer told of­fi­cers that when he doesn’t play well at PGA Tour events, his wife of­ten gets an­gry. Po­lice said Glover’s mother tried to in­ter­vene be­tween the two and was hit in the chest. No one was se­ri­ously hurt.

Glover, 38, took to Twit­ter to try and clear the air. He said he didn’t want his wife ar­rested.

“Ev­ery­one is fine,” Glover wrote. “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.”

The PGA Tour re­leased a state­ment say­ing they are ready to pro­vide any as­sis­tance.

“We are aware of the sit­u­a­tion and Lu­cas in­formed us of his state­ment, which has since been posted to his Twit­ter ac­count,” the PGA Tour said. “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.”

Glover and his wife were mar­ried in 2011 and have two chil­dren.

We are com­fort­able that the judicial sys­tem is able to ad­dress what hap­pened – Lu­cas Glover
