Lucas Glover missed the cut after a third round 78 at the Players Championship

Krista Glover was arrested Saturday night and taken to the St John's County jail.

Glover, 36, was arrested Saturday evening after her husband said she attacked him, and his mother, in a drunken rage because she was upset about his performance at The Players Championship.

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

Lucas told authorities "the altercation began earlier in the evening after playing a bad round of golf".

Saturday night, Lucas allegedly told deputies he was exhausted of all the altercations and couldn't take it anymore.

Krista Glover initially claimed to have been "attacked" by her mother-in-law, who suffered cuts to both arms.

Neither Lucas nor his mom asked to be treated by paramedics.

The 38-year-old golfer, best known for his 2009 win at the U.S. Open and the 2011 Wells Fargo Open, said his wife had been drinking all day, the report shows.

Present were Lucas Glover, his wife, and his mother, Hershey Glover, according to the arrest report obtained by Heavy.

Glover's wife, Krista, told the 911 operator she had been attacked by her mother-in-law, who had locked herself in her room. "This is the husband, the sane one of the bunch", Glover says in a calm voice, acknowledging his bleeding mother.

Lucas Glover allegedly said that his wife "acts this way and starts altercations all the time".

Lucas agreed to complete a written statement but became "irrational" once Krista was placed in handcuffs.

The deputies wrote in their report that she resisted them and refused to get into the back seat of a squad vehicle by trying "to tense her body and blocking herself from sitting down in the auto".

"Krista proceeded to wrap her legs and feet around the door and frame of the auto preventing the lower half of her [sic] body from entering the vehicle", the report says.

According to statements given to deputies at the scene, a 911 call was made at 8.30 p.m. reporting a disturbance. "You will lose your job". It's amazingly stressful, frustrating, depressing and sad, yet not surprising, to read a story of a white woman who, despite attacking her family, berating the police while being arrested and damaging a police vehicle, gets to physically go home to her family while so many of those of a darker shade are forced to face physical pain and embarrassment, while some are never allowed to go home and their families are left mourning their loss.

As part of the court order, she is only allowed to return to their 4,300 square foot home in Jupiter, Florida, once, while accompanied by a police officer to retrieve her personal belongings. Krista Glover had no visible injuries.

We've reached out to the PGA for comment, but the tour told the Associated Press: "We are aware of the situation and Lucas informed us of his statement, which has since been posted to his Twitter account". Since then, he has made $20.1 million in prize money. He and Krista were married in 2012. They have a six-year-old girl and a three-year-old boy.
