Lucas Glover's wife goes to court over domestic violence at Players Championship
Verdict delivered at Seventh Judicial Circuit Court in St. Johns County, Fl
In relation to last year's domestic violence incident in which Lucas Glover and his mother received injuries, Glover's wife Krista Glover has entered a deferred prosecution agreement last Friday. The terms are for a 12-month probationary period, which will be rendered null and void should Krista Glover violate any laws or conditions.
The terms include 25 hours of community service and following any recommended treatment or counseling from a substance abuse and mental health evaluation.
Lucas Glover is playing at this week’s Desert Challenge in La Quinta, Calif, where he shot 4-under 68 in Thursday’s opening round, 10 shots better than the score he made at the Players last year which reportedly sparked Krista Glover's anger at her husband's poor play.
Glover was arrested on a domestic violence charge in May during the Players Championship in Ponte Vedra, Fla., where she reportedly became upset and “forcefully attacked” her husband after his third round 78. She was charged with battery (domestic violence) and resisting an officer without violence.
During the incident, Lucas Glover called 911 and told officers "My wife has gone crazy". He later referred to the occurence as a “private matter” and issued the following statement on Twitter:
“On May 12, my wife and mother were involved in an argument to which the police were called. 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. We thank you for respecting our privacy as we work through this unfortunate situation.”
And another thing!
