Former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover and his mother sustained minor injuries allegedly inflicted by Glover’s wife in an incident that began after Glover didn’t make the final cut at The Players Championship in Florida last weekend, according to court and police records obtained by USA TODAY Sports.

Krista Glover was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and resisting arrest Saturday night after officers from the St. John’s County Sheriff’s Department responded to their house in Ponte Vedra Beach, near the site of the tournament at TPC Sawgrass.

Lucas Glover told officers his wife began yelling at him – calling him a “loser” and cursed at him – over his third-round performance as he shot a 78. The taunts came in front of their kids and Glover’s mother, who tried to intervene, according to the police report.

Glover told the officers that his wife tends to start arguments after he plays poorly.

Glover’s mother, Hershey Glover, suffered “multiple lacerations” to both arms and had blood on her clothes and skin, one of the officers wrote in the report. She declined medical treatment for the injuries and didn’t seek charges

Glover, who had lacerations on his right arm, initially told officers he was willing to provide a sworn affidavit to pursue charges. But after his wife was forced into the patrol car, he attempted to claim that his injuries were not the result of the alleged altercation.

“Everyone is fine,” Glover wrote on Twitter. “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.”

After officers made the decision to arrest Krista Glover, she “proceeded to wrap her legs and feet around the door and frame of the car preventing” officers from placing her in the back of the patrol car. Once inside, she damaged the door by “forcefully kicking” it.

Officers were eventually able to secure her in the back of the vehicle and she was transported to the St. John’s County Jail where she was booked on the two misdemeanor charges.

She was released later Saturday night on a $2,500 bond and pleaded not guilty in her first court appearance Tuesday. Krista Glover is scheduled to return to court May 31.

Glover and his wife have two children, a daughter who turned 5 on Monday and a 2-year-old son. He has three PGA Tour victories, including the 2009 U.S. Open at Bethpage Black. He also has played in the Presidents Cup twice.

“We are aware of the situation and Lucas informed us of his statement, which has since been posted to his Twitter account,” the PGA Tour said in a statement. “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.”
