The 36-year-old spouse of golf’s 2009 U.S. Open champion was arrested Saturday night after an angry assault in Ponte Vedra Beach that began with yelling and taunts and ended with curses and threats to deputies, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office.
Krista Conley Glover, wife of PGA pro golfer Lucas Glover, was charged with misdemeanor battery and resisting arrest, according to her arrest report. The Glovers live near Jupiter in Martin County
Lucas Glover, 38, confirmed the arrest in a Tuesday morning tweet, saying: “Everyone is fine” after he and his mother were involved in the argument.
“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 tweet said.
Deputies were called to a rental home on Marsh Hawk Place about 8:25 p.m. to find the couple arguing. Krista Glover met the deputies in the driveway and told them “everything was fine” and she did not want information shared “because of who they were,” according to the arrest report.
The deputies met Lucas Glover, who said the altercation began after he played a “bad round of golf.” He competed in The Players Championship at Sawgrass but missed the 54-hole cut Saturday.
