Wife of former Clemson golfer Lucas Glover arrested on battery charge


The 2009 U.S. Open champion, Glover shot a 78 Saturday in the third round of the Players. When police arrived, they found Lucas and Krista on the porch "in a verbal altercation".

According to the report, Glover "told deputies Krista gets violent every time he doesn't play well in a major PGA tournament". According to the police report, the arresting officer found probable cause to take Conley Glover into custody when he observed "injury to [Glover's] right arm" and "multiple lacerations" to both of his mother's arms, as well as "blood on her clothing and skin".

Krista Glover, 36, was arrested by St. Johns County Sheriff's deputies at Sawgrass TPC in Ponte Vedra Beach and charged with domestic battery and resisting arrest. Each charge carries a sentence of up to a year in jail.

Once Glover was in the vehicle, the report says she "began screaming while forcefully kicking the rear driver's side door ... causing the door to visibly separate from the cell of the door frame".

Lucas released a statement on Twitter, saying, "On May 12, my wife and mother were involved in an argument to which the police were called".

And since he had a bad day alongside Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose at The Players, she allegedly went off on him at dinner time and showered him with insults, including "p***y" and 'loser, ' the incident report reads.

In a statement to Golf.com, the PGA Tour said it supported Glover and his family: "We are aware of the situation and Lucas informed us of his statement, which has since been posted to his Twitter account".

Lucas told police Krista had been drinking before the altercation. Both Lucas Glover and his mother had visible injuries after she intervened to stop the altercation. "You will lose your job". Wait till I talk with the judge, you will be f***ng fired over this'.

The deputies wrote in their report she resisted them and refused to get into the back seat of a squad auto by trying "to tense her body and blocking herself from sitting down in the vehicle".

"Everyone is fine", Glover tweeted. He says he is comfortable the judicial system will be able to clear his wife. She said she was trying to break up a fight between her son and his wife when her daughter-in-law attacked her instead.
