Wife attacked former US Open champ over bad round

Wife attacked former US Open champ over bad round

PGA Tour golfer Lucas Glover was involved in a freaky incident that ended with his wife being arrested for domestic violence following his round on Saturday at The Players Championship.

The police report also said that Krista Glover attempted to flee the scene after her arrest and that she kicked a door of a police vehicle so hard it caused the door to "visibly separate from the cell of the door frame".

Per the AP, the arresting officer noted that Glover's mother, who declined to pursue charges, was allegedly attacked by Krista Glover after trying to intervene in an altercation between her son and daughter-in-law.

When cops made contact with Lucas, he said the fight started after he played a bad round of golf at the Player's Championship earlier that day.

An unredacted version of the police report indicated that Lucas and his mother, Hershey, were the victims in this assault.

According to Golf Digest, which obtained documents from the St. John's County Sheriff's office, everything escalated when Glover's wife berated him for his poor round at The Players Championship over the weekend. The police report says that Lucas stated that Krista becomes "violent every time he doesn't play well in a major PGA tournament".


Lucas also said he was exhausted of all the fights and couldn't take it anymore.

Krista was also charged with resisting arrest and faces up to one year in jail on each misdemeanor count. Once inside, she allegedly "began screaming while forcefully kicking the rear driver's side door", causing damage to the vehicle.

Police arrived after a reported disturbance where they found Lucas and Krista having a "verbal altercation" in the porch of their residence. 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.

When Lucas' mother was interviewed, she told deputies she tried to stop the argument between husband and wife, but Krista turned against her and hit her repeatedly.

The couple are married and have two children. Wait till I talk with the judge, you will be f***ng fired over this'.

He has three PGA Tour victories, including the 2009 U.S. Open at Bethpage Black.
