Albuquerque Journal - - SPORTS - BY JOHN HEALY

Wife of PGA Tour golfer Lu­cas Glover ar­rested af­ter tak­ing it out on him, his mom when he misses sec­ondary cut at tour­na­ment, per po­lice re­port.

Krista Glover, the wife of PGA Tour golfer Lu­cas Glover, was ar­rested and charged with do­mes­tic bat­tery and re­sist­ing ar­rest with­out vi­o­lence in Point Ve­dra Beach, Fla., on Satur­day af­ter she al­legedly at­tacked her hus­band and 62-year-old mother-in-law.

Ac­cord­ing to the in­ci­dent re­port from the St. Johns County Sher­iff’s Of­fice, Krista, 36, had been drink­ing through­out the day and be­rated Lu­cas for miss­ing the sec­ondary cut at the Play­ers Cham­pi­onship, call­ing him an ex­ple­tive and “loser.”

When po­lice ar­rived, Krista and Lu­cas, 38, were ar­gu­ing on the porch and she told deputies she was at­tacked by his mother, Her­shey Hend­ley. Krista had no vis­i­ble in­juries while Lu­cas and Hend­ley had lac­er­a­tions on their arms.

Hend­ley told the po­lice that she tried to in­ter­vene while the cou­ple ar­gued in front of her and their two young chil­dren but Krista be­gan to as­sault her.

When the of­fi­cers took Krista into cus­tody, she force­fully re­moved her­self from the ar­rest­ing of­fi­cer and re­fused to en­ter the pa­trol car. Once in­side the ve­hi­cle, she al­legedly dam­aged the car by kick­ing the door and later at­tempted to get away when the two deputies loos­ened her hand­cuffs.

Per the re­port, Krista told the of­fi­cers, “this is why cops get shot in the face. Wait till I talk to the judge, you will be ‘ex­ple­tive’ fired over this.”

Krista was re­leased from jail Sun­day on $2,500 bond and has a court date of May 31.

Lu­cas, the 2009 U.S. Open cham­pion at Beth­page, told deputies that when­ever he plays a bad round of golf, Krista be­gins an al­ter­ca­tion with him and tells him “how he is a loser and ‘ex­ple­tive,’ how he needs to fire ev­ery­one and how he bet­ter win or her and the kids would leave him and he would never see the kids again,” the re­port said.
