Tiger Woods, the most marketable athlete in the world, sustained facial injuries after crashing his Cadillac Escalade into a fire hydrant and a tree while leaving his driveway.
As reported by the BBC, Tiger Woods was found out of it and only semi conscious with facial injuries. It was reported that his wife Elin heroically used one of Tiger’s gold clubs to break the rear window of his car to pull him out. Tiger was admitted to hospital was released later that day; despite initial reports claiming the golfer was seriously injured.
Investigators say alcohol was not matter in the case they are treating as a traffic accident. What else could they treat it as? In light of allegations the couple, who have been married for five years, were fighting before the incident, police said they are continuing their investigation and will speak with Tiger. The case is not being treated as a domestic violence issue.
While police maintain questions will be answered as soon as they finish interviewing Tiger, celebrity gossip site TMZ.com has already conjured up its own theory of what happened.
The say that some of the facial injuries Tiger sustained were because of a domestic dispute he had with his wife over an alleged affair, and that instead of rescuing him by smashing the rear window of his car, she reportedly chased him with the golf club. TMZ claims Tiger crashed his car because his wife distracted him.
Tiger, who was meant to speak to police about the incident, seems to be dodging questions while he decides on what story he wants to tell. As TMZ put it, if his wife admits to scratching his face, she could end up with a domestic dispute charge.
