ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. (CBS12) — The wife of a former U.S. Open champion is facing domestic violence charges after attacking her husband who played poorly at The Players Championship, according to a report by the Daily Mail.
According to a report from the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office, deputies arrested Krista Glover in Ponte Vedra on Saturday night on misdemeanor charges of battery and resisting an officer.
The Daily Mail reports Glover, 36, is accused of verbally and physically attacking Lucas Glover. Earlier that day, Glover played his last round at The Players Championship, shooting a 78. According to a report obtained by the Daily Mail, Krista Glover also attacked Glover's mother. The deputies arrested Glover after seeing "visible but minor injuries" on the golfer and his mother. Earlier that night at dinner, Glover reportedly berated the golfer in front of their children and the confrontation carried over to a home the couple rented not far from the tournament golf course.
As deputies escorted Glover to a patrol car in handcuffs, they say she tried to break free, refused to sit in the patrol car and tried to keep deputies from putting her into the backseat of the car. According to the report, once inside the car Glover began kicking and screaming. The kicks were strong enough to "separate the door from the cell of the door frame," wrote deputies.
In a 911 call, the male caller says his wife tried to blame the incident on his mother, "which is not the case at all," said the man on the phone. "My wife has gone crazy," he added. The caller told dispatch that he wouldn't let deputies talk to his wife because she's out of her head at the moment.
Mrs. Glover, of Jupiter, spent about eleven hours in the St. Johns County Jail before being released on bond Sunday morning, according to online records.
Lucas Glover won the U.S. Open in 2009 - his best year as far as winnings go. He's earned $20 million while playing in 380 events on the PGA Tour since 2001, according to the PGA Tour.
