Tigger gets banged up

Recommended Posts

This ought to be interesting as it plays out.....

 

JACKSONVILLE, Florida (AP)â€â€Tiger Woods was injured when he lost control of his car outside his Florida mansion, and a local police chief said Woods’ wife used a golf club to smash out the back window to help get him out early Friday.

 

The world’s No. 1 golfer was treated and released from a hospital in good condition, his spokesman said. The Florida Highway Patrol said Woods’ vehicle hit a fire hydrant and a tree in his neighbor’s yard after he pulled out of his driveway at 2:25 a.m.

 

Windermere Police Chief Daniel Saylor told The Associated Press that officers found the 33-year-old Woods laying in the street with his wife, Elin, hovering over him.

 

She told officers she was in the house when she heard the accident and “came out and broke the back window with a golf club,†he said. “She supposedly got him out and laid him on the ground. He was in and out of consciousness when my guys got there.â€Â

 

Saylor said Woods had lacerations to his lips, and blood in his mouth; officers treated Woods for about 10 minutes until an ambulance arrived. Woods was conscious enough to speak, he said.

 

“He was mumbling, but didn’t say anything coherent,†Saylor said.

 

The Florida Highway Patrol said Woods was alone in his 2009 Cadillac SUV when he pulled out of his driveway from his mansion at Isleworth, a gated waterfront community just outside Orlando.

 

The patrol reported Woods’ injuries as serious, although Woods spokesman Glenn Greenspan issued a statement that Woods was treated and released.

 

The patrol said alcohol was not involved,([color:blue]yeah, right[/color]) although the accident remains under investigation and charges could be filed.

 

Left unanswered was where Woods was going at that hour. Greenspan and agent Mark Steinberg said there would be no comment beyond the short statement of the accident on Woods’ Web site.

 

Saylor said his responding officers did not hear anything about an alleged argument between Woods and his wife.

 

“Right now we believe this is a traffic crash. We don’t believe it is a domestic issue,[color:blue](at 230 am?? Of course not, he was just going to get milk for the kids[/color])†patrol spokesman Sergeant Kim Montes said.

 

Woods, coming off a two-week trip to China and Australia this month, is host of the Chevron World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, California, which starts on Thursday. He is scheduled to have his press conference on Tuesday at Sherwood Country Club. Steinberg said he did not know if Woods planned to play next week.

 

The accident report was not released until nearly 12 hours after Woods was injured. Patrol spokesman Kim Montes said the accident did not meet the criteria of a serious crash, and the FHP put out a press release only because of inquiries from local media.

 

Montes said the patrol reports injuries as serious if they require more than minor medical attention. Air bags in the SUV did not deploy.

 

Two troopers tried to talk to Woods late Friday, but his wife said he was sleeping and they agreed to come back on Saturday, Montes said.

 

She said charges could be filed if there was a clear traffic violation, although troopers still do not know what caused Woods’ SUV to hit the hydrant and the tree.

 

Woods rarely faces such private scrutiny, even as perhaps the most famous active athlete in the world.

 

He usually made news only because of what he can do with a golf club. Few other athletes have managed to keep their private lives so guarded, or have a circle of friends so airtight when it comes to life off the course.

Pardon me but was there a little typo of literal degeneration with having 2 g's in TIGER. :surprised: I'm not in the mode of pointing fingers but that is a rare typo considering the formidable ethnicity of K. Tiger and the controverted situation of his highly rated blond trophy wife :drool::drool: .

I'm sure it'll be brushed aside. Something like he had just come back from overseas, he was exhausted and fell asleep seconds after he left his driveway. Something completely believable, such as that.

Just goes to show, when a Man has everything he needs and no restrictions - then what he desires is (....) - insert your own answer there.

 

As the saying goes, It's Good to be The King!

If alcohol wasn't involved, then what was he on? :hmmm:

 

Something to ponder ( if you really give a shit ) Here's my theory... :drool:

 

He's arguing with the wifey , she delivers a Mike Tyson like punch to his chops. He starts crying because she bloody's his lips and mouth.

 

He storms into his SUV and at an accelerated speed of NOT more than 33 MPH crashed into the fire hydrant ( airbags dont deploy under that speed )

 

The crash was caused cause wifey was chasing him with a 5 iron down the driveway.

 

She smashes out the rear window of the SUV to finish him off.... coppers arrive and save him from further beating from wifey.... case closed.

 

Bada :sleeping: Bing

Dehydration, perhaps?

 

TMZ.com has some interesting coverage.
