Lucas Glover Wife
Is Lucas Glover married? He is married to Krista Conley Glover.
In May 2018, Lucas Glover’s wife was arrested 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 was charged with misdemeanor battery and resisting arrest, according to her arrest report.
The PGA pro golfer confirmed the arrest in a tweet, saying “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.”
She was released on bail, according to jail records.
In January 2019, Krista entered a deferred prosecution agreement following her arrest in May on charges of battery and resisting an officer without violence.
“This will be our closure that it’s behind us,” Glover said following his third round at the Desert Classic.
“There is no probation,” Glover said. “We did a lot of things on our own that we opted to do before the court ordered it. We did it together because we needed it.”
Following months of silence, however, Glover said the police reports were not entirely accurate.
“I can now say she never hit me,” Glover said. “I don’t know why it was reported that way. We had to stay quiet until the case was over and we felt strongly this would be the result. We had to take the high road and say nothing, which was difficult. There were a lot of things we wanted to straighten out in the report but we couldn’t.”
The Glovers recently renewed their wedding vows and Glover said the two have started a new chapter.
“It was the closure of everything, of all the mess for us and a symbol of a new beginning,” Glover said. “It was emotional and symbolic.”
