Krista Glover, the wife of PGA Tour golfer Lucas Glover, was arrested and charged with domestic battery and resisting arrest without violence in Point Vedra Beach, Fla. on Saturday after she allegedly attacked her husband and 62-year-old mother-in-law.

According to the incident report from the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, Krista, 36, had been drinking throughout the day and berated Lucas for missing the secondary cut at the Players Championship, calling him a ‘p—y’ and ‘loser.’

When police arrived, Krista and Lucas were arguing on the porch and she told deputies she was attacked by his mother, Hershey Hendley. Krista had no visible injuries while Lucas and Hendley had lacerations on their arms and Hendley also had blood on her clothes.

Lucas, 38, attempted to tell deputies there was no physical altercation so his wife of six years would avoid being arrested.

Hendley told the police that she tried to intervene while the couple argued in front of her and their two young children but Krista began to assault her.

When the officers took Krista into custody, she forcefully removed herself from the arresting officer and refused to enter the patrol car. Once inside the vehicle, she allegedly damaged the car by kicking the door and later attempted to get away when the two deputies loosened her handcuffs.

Per the report, Krista told the officers, “this is why cops get shot in the face. Wait till I talk to the judge, you will be f—ing fired over this.”

Krista was released from jail Sunday on $2,500 bond and has a court date of May 31.

If she is found guilty, she could spend one year in jail on each misdemeanor count.

Lucas, the 2009 U.S. Open champion at Bethpage, told deputies that whenever he plays a bad round of golf, Krista begins an altercation with him and tells him “how how he is a loser and p—y, how he needs to fire everyone and how he better win or her and the kids would leave him and he would never see the kids again,” the report said.

Lucas issued a statement regarding the incident on Tuesday via Twitter.

“On May 12, my wife and mother were involved in an argument to which the police were called,” he said. “Everyone is fine. Regrettably, although Krista was charged, we are comfortable that the judicial system is able to address what actually happened and Krista will be cleared in this private matter. We thank you for respecting our privacy as we work through this unfortunate situation.”
