Glover's wife arrested for domestic violence

The wife of former US Open champion Lucas Glover is facing domestic violence charges stemming from an altercation with Glover and his mother after he missed the 54-hole cut at The Players Championship.

Talk about playing a tough crowd! Krista Glover, 36, the wife of Lucas Glover, 38, was arrested on May 12 for suspicion of domestic violence and resisting arrest after officers from the St. John's County Sherriff's Department arrived at their home in Ponte Verde Beach, Florida, according to USA Today.

That evening, his wife Krista Glover allegedly showered him with insults and attacked Glover and his mother Hershey. It took both lawmen to re-handcuff her.

Police were called to the American pair's rented Florida home and told by the world number 104 that "every time he plays a bad round of golf, Krista proceeds to start an altercation".

The drama, however, didn't stop once Krista was handcuffed.

The report also noted that there were lacerations on the arms of both Lucas and his mother, Hershey Glover, who was found with blood on her clothes. Neither Lucas or his mother required attention from paramedics.

Glover, who won the 2009 U.S. Open, married Krista in 2012.

Lucas Glover may not be winning right now, but he's brought in more than $20 million in prize money over the years!

She was "screaming while forcefully kicking the rear driver's side door", during her arrest, according to the police report. The elder Glover reportedly told authorities that her daughter-in-law punched her in the chest.

Lucas Glover told the dispatcher that his wife was lying and that there's been a misunderstanding regarding the incident.

The officer also said that the golfer informed him that his wife had done this before. "By pushing and pulling.[deputies] were eventually able to get Krista placed in the back seat of the patrol vehicle".

The police report states that Krista resisted being placed in the back seat of a patrol auto and damaged one of the doors by repeatedly kicking it.

Later, she allegedly damaged the door of the police vehicle by repeatedly kicking it. Krista says: "I've been attacked by my mother-in law". 'You will lose your job.

"This is why cops get shot in the face", she told deputies.

Krista was ultimately put into the auto, but she then began screaming and forcefully kicking the rear driver's side door of the patrol vehicle. Lucas didn't return a call for comment left on his cellphone.

Krista was released later on May 12 on a $2,500 bond.

Krista is scheduled to appear court on May 31.
