Report: Tiger Woods met with Florida Highway Patrol on Dec. 1
WESH-TV in Orlando is reporting that Tiger Woods met with the Florida Highway Patrol on Dec. 1, a few days after he crashed his car near his Isleworth home. The station cited Kim Montes, spokeswoman for the FHP, as the source of the story, and the timing seems designed to contradict a hoax e-mail that has been circulating and was published on the blog of Furman Bisher, a retired Atlanta Journal-Constitution sports journalist.
FHP spokeswoman Kim Montes said Woods met with troopers at an undisclosed location on Dec. 1 to deliver his ticket and see if Woods had any injuries that might not be consistent with his traffic accident.
Montes said troopers only noted "a fat lip" and no other facial injuries -- and no reason to believe he was the victim of domestic violence.This would appear to refute a report first published by an Atlanta sportswriter indicating Woods had been struck with a golf club by his wife, Elin, and had a gash in his face that required him flying to Phoenix for plastic surgery. Woods agent has denied that account.
On the day Tiger Woods was issued and signed a traffic ticket for careless driving, the Florida Highway Patrol confirms two captains and a trooper met in person with Woods and his attorney Mark NeJame.
