Police charge Woods with careless driving, no domestic-abuse claims

Posted at 3:26 PM by Mike Walker |

A Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman said Tuesday that Tiger Woods will be cited for careless driving as the result of his one-car accident early Friday morning. The penalty for not driving "in a careful and prudent manner" is a $164 fine and four points on Woods' Florida driver's license.

"Mr. Woods has satisfied the requirements of Florida law, and the Florida Highway Patrol's investigation is completed," the spokeswoman said. She added that there were no claims of domestic violence by anyone involved in the case and "no additional evidence of any kind to warrant further investigation."

The spokeswoman said that the Florida Highway Patrol worked with the Florida state's attorney's office and determined there was insufficient evidence to issue subpoenas for Woods's medical records following the crash. The Florida Highway Patrol will have no further comment on the case. Full reports of the investigation will be made available to the media at a cost of $10.
