New details from the crash scene suggest that Tiger really did dodge a bullet when the police decided to charge him only with careless driving.
This latest information won’t ease the tension for Tiger’s sponsors.
WINDERMERE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida trooper who suspected Tiger Woods was driving under the influence sought a subpoena for the golfer’s blood results from the hospital he was taken to after crashing his SUV, but prosecutors rejected the petition for insufficient information, according to a police report released Monday.
A witness, who wasn’t identified in the report, told trooper Joshua Evans that Woods had been drinking alcohol earlier. The same witness also said Woods had been prescribed two drugs, Ambien and Vicodin. The report did not say how the witness knew that. Elin, Woods’ wife, originally identified herself to police as the person who removed Woods from the car.
“Impairment of the driver is also suspected due to the careless driving that resulted in the traffic crash,” Evans wrote in the report dated Nov. 30 that was released by the State Attorney General’s office.
