Golf star's wife charged after allegedly attacking him for poor round

Golf star's wife charged after allegedly attacking him for poor 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.

Police reportedly saw abrasions and other injuries on Hershey Glover when they arrived to arrest Krista Glover.

"Lucas advised me every time he plays poorly in a tournament, Krista begins yelling at him, stating he is a "loser" and "p*ssy" and ultimately starting an altercation with him about his performance."

"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", the Daily Mail reported.

The three-time victor on the PGA Tour told officers that his wife had been drinking.

According to Fox News, Lucas Glover shot a 78 during the third round of the competition earlier this month in Florida when the argument with his wife, Krista Glover, began. Each charge carries a sentence of up to a year in jail.

Krista forcefully attempted to escape as she was escorted to the police vehicle, "screaming while forcefully kicking the rear driver's side door" and causing damage to the auto, according to the report.

Lucas Glover released a statement on his Twitter account regarding the incident.

And since he had a bad day live on national television alongside the likes of Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose, she allegedly went off on him when he got home.

After deputies handcuffed Krista Glover, she became combative and tried to separate herself from the arresting deputy, the report says.

Both Lucas and his mother suffered visible but minor injuries in the altercation. This is why cops get shot in the face.

"Regrettably, although Krista was charged, we are comfortable that the judicial system is able to address what actually happened", the statement said in part. She verbally abused Glover and peppered him with profane insults in front of their young children after his round on Saturday, the report says. "Of course, we are here to provide support to Lucas and his family if needed; however, we are also respecting their request for privacy during this time", the statement read.
