Wife of a former US Open champion Lucas Glover's wife was arrested and charged with battery and resisting arrest before being released on a bond.

Krista Glover was arrested by the St Johns County police officers in Florida following an ‘altercation’ in which Lucas, his mother and Krista were involved.

Lucas Glover who is currently ranked 104 in the world told the police that "every time he plays a bad round of golf, Krista proceeds to start an altercation".

Glover recently missed the cut at the Players Championship on Saturday which has a $10.5 million purse, with the winner collecting $1.98 million.

In the police report (embedded at the end of this article) filed at the St Johns County Sheriff’s office, says as the police officers reached Glover home after receiving a call, they first met Krista Glover who claimed to have been "attacked" by her mother-in-law, who suffered cuts to both arms.

Lucas Glover told the police that Krista had been drinking alcohol all day.

Apparently, the altercation started between Lucas Glover’s mother and his wife which resulted in Krista attacking his mother. Lucas then separated all three and asked both of them to go to their rooms.

The report states that Lucas insisted that his wife did not lay a hand on him and he received the wound on his right arm while trying to break up the altercation between his wife and mother.

In a tweet, the 2009 US Open champion said, "Everyone is fine. Regrettably, although Krista was charged, we are comfortable that the judicial system is able to address what actually happened and Krista will be cleared in this private matter."

The police report accuses Krista to have become “irrational” and "verbally and physically aggressive" after being handcuffed.

"Krista proceeded to wrap her legs and feet around the door frame of the car. She continued to scream and kicked the bars covering the driver's side window and the driver's side door several times.

"The bars were bent back preventing the rear driver's door from locking without manually pressing down the door lock." Allegedly, she also warned the police officers that they will lose their job after the (PGA) Tour hears about it. "This is why cops get shot in the face," she allegedly added.
