Golfer's wife arrested for drunken attack after missed cut

Golfer's wife arrested for drunken attack after missed cut

In the police report, Lucas Glover told officers that "every time he plays poorly in a tournament, Krista begins yelling at him, stating he is a "loser" and a "p-y" " and that he was "tired of the altercations".

According to the police report, an officer observed that Glover's mother has blood and cuts on her arms and police alleged that Krista injured the elderly women when the latter tried to put an end to the argument.

Authorities in Florida arrested the wife of a former U.S. Open champion after she allegedly attacked her husband and mother-in-law following a round of golf at the Players Championship recently.

Krista was released Sunday on $2,500-bond.

A frantic Krista was first to call 911, saying: "I've been attacked by my mother-in law.' She's locked herself into a room and attacked us". When asked how she was attacked, Glover's wife hung up. She said she was trying to break up a fight between her son and his wife when her daughter-in-law attacked her instead. The former US Open champ eventually gains control of the call and tells 911 Krista is lying and "has gone insane". "I don't think anybody needs to come out here".

The 38-year-old veteran is a three-time victor on the PGA Tour, including the 2009 U.S. Open. It continues to say that Krista and the arresting deputy struggled to get her into the patrol auto. He says he is comfortable the judicial system will be able to clear his wife.

Glover later confirmed that his wife was drunk at the time. According to the report, she refused to pursue a battery charge against Krista Glover. She reportedly flung a plethora of verbal insults his way in addition to the physical violence, allegedly going so far as threatening to flee with the family and not allow him to see his children again.

The police report said Lucas was exhausted of these altercations, but simultaneously tried to dissuade officials from arresting Krista. Krista reportedly damaged the inside of the vehicle by kicking the door. Glover, who has been on the PGA Tour since 2001, has 3 PGA Tour victories and is now ranked 95th in the FedEx Cup rankings.

"When the [PGA] Tour hears about this, you will lose your job", Krista Glover told deputies, according to WJAX-TV, citing the report. "We than you for respecting our privacy as we work through this unfortunate situation".

Lucas Glover nearly got a hole in one...in his face.

However, in a statement posted to Twitter when news of the incident broke, Lucas Glover painted a very different picture of the altercation.

A former Clemson University golf star, Lucas Glover has been on the PGA tour since 2001.
