Wife of PGA golfer Lucas Glover arrested on domestic violence charges

16 May 2018

The wife of three-time PGA Tour victor Lucas Glover was arrested Saturday night and charged with domestic violence and resisting arrest, according to an incident report from the St. Johns County Sheriff's department.

According to a police report, Glover said he was "tired of the altercations", claiming that his wife, Krista Conley Glover, became abusive "every time he plays poorly in a tournament".

Golf World reported that a document from the St Johns County Sheriff's department states Lucas was berated by his wife for his poor play (he shot a third-round 78 for a MDF - made cut, did not finish).

Police noted multiple lacerations to both Lucas and his 62-year-old mother, who had blood on her shirt and said she was hit in the chest.

He has three PGA Tour victories, including the 2009 U.S. Open at Bethpage Black.

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.

After the arrest, the golfer posted a message to Twitter telling fans that there was an altercation and asking for privacy on the matter.

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

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".

"Wait till the tour (PGA) hears about this", she yelled, according to the report cited in The Mail.

"This is why cops get shot in the face", she told deputies. She verbally abused Glover and peppered him with profane insults in front of their young children after his round on Saturday, the report says. "Wait till I talk with the judge, you will be f--ing fired over this". She was released on $2,500 bond and has a date in court on May 31. "Everyone is fine", Glover wrote on Twitter. She said she was trying to break up a fight between her son and his wife when her daughter-in-law attacked her instead. "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.
