Tiger Woods: Injuries Caused by Wife, Not SUV
TMZ.com ^ | 11/28/09 | Staff

Posted on 11/27/2009 10:50:28 PM PST by OldDeckHand

Tiger Woods did not suffer facial lacerations from a car accident. They were inflicted by his wife, Elin Nordegren -- according to a conversation Woods had Friday after the accident.

Tiger has yet to be formally interviewed by the Florida Highway Patrol -- that should happen this afternoon. But we're told Tiger had a conversation Friday -- with a non-law enforcement type -- detailing what went down before his Escalade hit a fire hydrant.

We're told he said his wife had confronted him about reports that he was seeing another woman. The argument got heated and, according to our source, she scratched his face up. We're told it was then Woods beat a hasty retreat for his SUV -- but according to our source, Woods says his wife followed behind with a golf club. As Tiger drove away, she struck the vehicle several times with the club.

It appears that everyone who had money on a scorned wife may be correct.

Earlier reports said she broke a back window to help him get out of the car with a golf club.

Back window?

Golf Club?

2:30 a.m.?

... and golf lends itself to some funny albeit tasteless comments as well.

So he has visible marks from a Domestic Assault? What’s FLA law say about that...?

That might explain why earlier reports said "charges were pending".

In a convoluted way there may be some truth to that statement.

It's very, very clear - she has to go to jail. And, FHP should NOT have let themselves be turned away by his wife when they showed up to interview him this afternoon. If you're going to drag the poor people off to jail when they start beating each other, you have to take the rich people to jail as well. The double standard so many feared when this story first broke may be accurate.

That is why men don’t report domestic violence. Comments like that. And half the time when they do report it they are the ones that end up in jail for it, even if the woman is at fault.

So get beat up by your girl and take the abuse over and over, hit back and go to jail, or run/report and get called a pussy.

Nice choices.

Tiger must have decided to not try to talk his way out of trouble, like, “Oh, Honey, you know that’s just a bunch of silly gossip. Not a word of it is true! You are my one and only, blah blah blah...” I mean, how easy is it to lie to a woman if you have to?

I’m guessing Tiger made the sad mistake of saying something like, “I told her I’m ending it, I swear.”

Ok now THIS makes more sense. No one leaves at 2:30 in the morning from their own home, unless he was on his way to Best Buy to get that Sony laptop for 399.99 which supposedly retailed for 1000 bucks(Yeah right!) This story makes more sense, gets in fight with wife, wife beats him up, he runs off, not paying attention, crashes into tree

Why is the FHP involved in this? Isn’t this a local issue?

Also, yje reason any woman is swinging a golf club at 2:20 am is not to “help” anyone.

Real men don’t report domestic violence.

They don’t put up with it.

So she’s beating on him (with a gold golf club, ironically), he flees in the car but is so disoriented from the beating that he hits a fire hydrant and a tree?

This gets weirder by the hour.

(Does explain why it took 12 hours to report, though ....)

"Why is the FHP involved in this? Isn’t this a local issue?"

I don't live in the area (Windermere), but I'm a little familiar with it - I believe it's unincorporated, so there's no police per se. It's either FHP or the county sheriff and I believe it was FHP who put out the original press release, so they must have jurisdiction.

______________________________________________________________

Wrong. Some studies have shown that women are equally as violent as men. Just because violence against women receives more attention doesn’t mean domestic assault is only a one way street.

They had 12 hours and his lawyers and agent couldn’t come up with a more believable story? “Paging Bill Ayers, please answer the nearest courtesy phone.”

Tiger was tactically wise. If he had resisted, his wife will claim injuries from spousal abuse and the man usually loses.

I just sent this to my BIL’s best friend an hour ago:

“Sorry, but I can’t get this picture out of my mind: second most favored mixed-race American Celebrity male running, bloody-faced to the safety of his Ghetto Cruiser, darting off only to become trapped in a Gold-rimmed, hydrant-trimmed, in-full-embrace of Mother Nature’s iconic treasure, autumn leaves aflutter, neighbors lights aglitter as she beats him about the head and ears to free him from this life of struggle and the never ending battle to keep up with the Joneses’.

No justice, no piece.”

"They had 12 hours and his lawyers and agent couldn’t come up with a more believable story?"

I don't know this for sure, but from reading all the press stories, I believe fire/rescue was called immediately, as they were first on the scene. Not being familiar with specifically how 911 works in that part of FL, I would be surprised if the PoPo isn't dispatched to reports of vehicular injury accidents.

I think that FHP didn't make public the incident until 12 hours later, through the press release that they issued. Again, not positive - I could be wrong.

Tiger sounds like a smart guy who knows how the media reports on domestic disputes, and he’d rather take your idiotic character assault than go through the media’s anal exam.

Hmmm, what studies show has no bearing on the law. In theory, you are correct, but that doesn't apply to the law.

There was a local case where a wife stabbed her wheelchair-bound husband. When the police came, they arrested the wheelchair-bound husband, even with the young children crying otherwise.

Yep, this story is kinda interesting. The airbags never deployed on the vehicle...so he was barely going twenty-five miles per hour. So if you ran into a tree at twenty-five miles per hour....other than minor vehicle damage....that would be it. Why break out the rear window to get the guy out? No...this whole story is falling apart.

All of the damage inflicted on Tiger...was by the wife. The media needs to get this story right. The only curious thing is that she didn’t have any weapons on her...other than the golf clubs.

I sleepwalked. I fell asleep at the office, somehow made it downstairs to my car, "sleep drove" to a motel and was in some woman's room I did not know or had ever seen before (I swear) when my wife and her bail bondsman sister came through the door. I have no idea how I got all of my clothes off and it was just a coincidence that that woman slept in the nude.

My wife (ex-wife now), her sister, her lawyer and the judge did not buy that story. Hell, even my lawyer was skeptical.

"The only curious thing is that she didn’t have any weapons on her...other than the golf clubs."

Assault with a golf club is Aggravated Assault in FL and that's a 2nd Degree Felony, or perhaps they charge it as felony domestic abuse - which I think is a third degree felony. Either way, it's jail time, no way around it.

I’ll bet if they went to the apt of a drunk, trashy guy wearing a wife-beater T-shirt who was wanted for domestic abuse, they would just take his word for it if he said his wife was “resting”.
/s

OTOH, Tiger probably was tired - it’s not easy having a big fight, getting beat up, and wrecking your SUV all in one night. Here’s another thought - did he wreck it intentionally to try and explain the damage and his injuries?
