Woods, who has faced a barrage of publicity concerning his private life since he crashed his car outside his family home in Florida less than two weeks ago, was reportedly admitted to Health Central Hospital under the alias William Smith.

Unreal. Talk about a coverrup.
“Overdose on sexual partners??? lol”
Or the little blue pills....
John Edwards was correct.....they really are 2 Americas.
One where people can deny police interviews after an accident, and the one the rest of us live in.
Man, those 4 hour stiffys can be serious.
Just think what the hospitals must be like in the vicinity of Hollyweird. Corrupt to the CORE. From what I’ve gathered.....so are the police force.
Since Tiger was probably incoherent when he was admitted, I’m wondering who saw to it that he was under an alias, the hospital, or his wife or “Team Tiger.”
Does the other "Will Smith" know about Tiger Woods impersonating him?
Know the law or call your attorney who knows the laws and you too can take advantage of your rights with regard to the police and interrogations or 'interviews'. Those options are available to all of us.
Is the law right? Probably not but people like Tiger, Obama and the other elites have separate laws.
Not every working stiff can afford to have a $450 an hour lawyer on retainer. Just like Congress not having the same healthcare they want to “give” to the avg Joe.
True, the 5th Amendment gives us all the right to not incriminate ourselves. But, a 1966 SCOTUS decision (Schmerber v. California) held that a state could force a blood-alcohol test on a driver of a motor vehicle without violating their 5th Amendment rights. That case was upheld and expanded in an '82 ruling (South Dakota v. Neville) which decided that not only could blood be drawn, but that licenses could be revoked for refusing such a blood test.
Tiger skated with respect to the immediate aftermath of the accident. Almost anyone else in a similar position, after being evaluated by LE, would have been asked to submit to a BAC test. Remember, Tiger's wife told the EMTs that he had been taking Viodin and Ambien, and had been drinking earlier in the day - all reasonable cause for LE to suspect impaired driving. But, those questions weren't asked by LE until the following day, when it was too late.
While it is correct that not every person can afford a high-dollar attorney, it doesn't cost anything to know the laws yourself.
was he trying to kill himself by hitting the tree?
They don't need your consent. There's ample case law that supports the drawing of blood in injury accidents when the suspect is incapable (usually do to injury) or uncooperative. In fact, it's codified in most states (including FL in Florida Code 316.1933 Blood test for impairment or intoxication in cases of death or serious bodily injury; right to use reasonable force.), and is known as "implied consent".
Thank you, I've read that in your posts now. My point was not that they needed consent, but that he was unable to either consent or refuse in his condition. I was responding to the statement that you lose your license immediately for refusing.
Actually, knowing the laws yourself is not very profitable. Convincing others that you know the law is where the deal gets done.
It's either a cover-up, or a case of incompetence - perhaps a little (or lot) of both. I keep repeating on these threads, "What if Tiger had made it out of his gated community, or ran into a home, rather than a fire hydrant and tree?" He is lucky that the he didn't kill seriously injury anyone (else), or worse.
My mistake. You are right. You do have to refuse to lose your license. Clearly, you need to be conscious to refuse. By all accounts, Tiger wasn't, at least not initially.
