Lucas Glover's wife arrested after violence at home

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

After Krista was arrested, Lucas allegedly started to change his previous statement, as well as Krista's dad, who also was at the scene, according to the report.

"On May 12, my wife and mother were involved in an argument to which the police were called", Glover tweeted in a statement.

New details from the unredacted police report show that Lucas told police that every time he played poorly in a tournament, his wife Krista would begin yelling at him, "stating that he is a "loser" and "p***y". At the same time, he tried to dissuade deputies from arresting Krista and claimed there was no physical altercation.

Deputies noted in their reports there were fresh lacerations to Lucas" right arm and "multiple lacerations' to both his 62-year-old mother Hershey Glover's arms as well as blood on her clothes. Glover's mother was found inside the home bleeding from several cuts, the report said.

The 38-year-old golfer, best known for his 2009 win at the U.S. Open and the 2011 Wells Fargo Open, did tell authorities that his wife had been drinking all day.

Krista, the report noted, had no visible injuries.

Lucas' mother intervened to get Krista to stop. That would explain the notes in the police report that she refused to get into the patrol auto, tried to wrap her legs around the doorway to keep from getting in, and also reportedly said that "this is why cops get shot in the face". Two lawmen were able to re-handcuff her.

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.

Krista also allegedly threatened to leave him with their children and that he would "never see their kids again", the report said. "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-king fired over this". She was released at 9:44 a.m. Sunday after posting $2,500 bond.

In a statement to, 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".
