Wife of PGA golfer Lucas Glover arrested on domestic violence charges

Wife of PGA golfer Lucas Glover arrested on domestic violence charges

In a police report obtained by TMZ, Lucas Glover, victor of the 2009 PGA U.S. Open, was attacked along with his mother by his wife Krista.

Hershey said in her statement to police that she tried to stop an "altercation" between the couple at which point Krista began "striking Hershey in her arm".

Glover was arrested on Saturday, May 12, Saturday in a house that she and Lucas had rented while he was playing in the tournament at Sawgrass TPC in Ponte Vedra Beach. The report also states Krista threatened the police. Glover missed the 54-hole cut after shooting a 78 on Saturday.

But because he and his mother suffered visible but minor injuries in the altercation, Krista Glover was taken to the local jail in handcuffs. 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.

According to Golf Digest, which obtained documents from the St. John's County Sheriff's office, everything escalated when Glover's wife berated him for his poor round at The Players Championship over the weekend.

"This is why cops get shot in the face", she told deputies.


Police said that Conley Glover "resisted" arrest, including attempting to "wrap her legs and feet around the door and frame of the car".

Lucas told deputies Krista gets violent every time he doesn't play well in a major PGA tournament, according to the incident report. Deputies also noted lacerations on the arms of both Lucas and his mother, Hershey Glover, who also had blood on her clothes.

The golfer, known for winning the 2009 U.S. Open, made $948,000 in 2016, followed by $1.9 million in 2017 and $768,000 in 2018 so far, according to PGA earning totals compiled by ESPN. While escorting her to a patrol auto, she became combative and tried to separate herself from the deputy, the arrest report said. She's due back in court May 31.

A Greenville, S.C., native, Glover played golf at Clemson from 1998-2001, being named an All-American in 2000 before turning professional.

He and Krista live in Jupiter, Fla., and were married in 2012. They have a 6-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy.
