Wife of former Clemson golfer Lucas Glover arrested on battery charge

The wife of former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover was arrested Saturday in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. for allegedly attacking Glover's mother during an altercation after he missed the 54-hole cut at The Players Championship.

Krista Conley Glover, 36, who is golfer Lucas Glover's wife, was charged with misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor resisting arrest, according to her arrest report.

"On May 12, my wife and mother were involved in an argument to which the police were called".

He allegedly told officers that Conley Glover had been "drinking throughout the day", and that whenever he plays poorly, she calls him a "p-y" and a "loser".

Hershey Glover also told the deputy she had been hit in the chest.

Her husband, Lucas Glover, won the 2009 U.S. Open.

Both charges filed against Krista Glover are misdemeanors but carry up to a 1-year sentence if convicted.

She allegedly tried to wrap her legs and feet around the frame of the open auto door, and once inside, Krista allegedly damaged the vehicle by kicking the door.

Given the visible injuries on Lucas Glover, his mother, and the verbal statements made, police said they had probable cause to make the arrest.

Krista was arrested Saturday evening and taken to the St. John's County Jail but was released the next day after posting a $2,500 bond.

"This is why cops get shot in the face", she told deputies. The fight degenerated into something physical, all of it in front of their two underage children and Lucas' momma. The police report says that Lucas stated that Krista becomes "violent every time he doesn't play well in a major PGA tournament".

According to the report, Hershey tried to stop the altercation when Krista started "striking Hershey in the arm".

She allegedly tried to wrap her legs and feet around the frame of the open auto door, but several deputies pulled and pushed until she got in.

'Wait till the tour (PGA) hears about this, ' she yelled, according to the report. "Wait till I talk with the judge, you will be f.ing fired over this".

While trying to put her in the auto, Krista allegedly wrapped her legs and feet around the door and frame of the auto, preventing the lower half of her body from getting into the vehicle.
