Krista Glover, the wife of former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover, was arrested Saturday after she allegedly verbally and physically attacked her husband and his mother.
Glover, who missed the cut after shooting 78 at the Players Championship earlier in the day, told police his wife regularly becomes abusive “every time he plays poorly in a tournament.”

The golfer’s wife was charged with domestic violence and resisting arrest without violence.
She was taken to the St. John’s County Jail and released on a $2,500 bond.
Glover’s 62-year-old mother, Hershey Glover, suffered “multiple lacerations” to both arms and had blood on her clothes and skin, according to the incident report.
Glover said his wife had been “drinking throughout the day” and started yelling at him.
She allegedly called him a “p—y” and a “loser,” over his third-round performance.
According to police, Glover’s wife resisted being placed in a patrol car and damaged the door by repeatedly kicking it.
“Wait till the tour [PGA] hears about this,” she yelled to an officer, according to the report. “You will lose your job. This is why cops get shot in the face. Wait till I talk with the judge, you will be f—g fired over this.”
