REPORT: WIFE ATTACKS GOLFER
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.
