Tiger Woods Injuries

Caused by Wife,

Not SUV

11/28/2009 10:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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 Woods
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.

Tiger WoodsWe're told Woods became "distracted," thought the vehicle was stopped, and looked to see what had happened. At that point the SUV hit the fire hydrant and then hit a tree.

We're also told Woods had said during the conversation Friday he had been taking prescription pain medication for an injury, which could explain why he seemed somewhat out of it at the scene.

Really! The Nat'l Enqr even claimed that John 'Breck Girl' Edwards had an illegitimate child with his man-servant, but MSM saw through that lie, huh?

It is a well known fact that this jerk is a notorious gambler who hangs out with the likes of michael jordan and charles barkley. Need I say more. I suppose cheating goes with the territory. Maybe he got caught by giving his wife an STD, wouldn't that be a nice gift. Divorce him Elin you will be way better off in the long run. I just hope you learned a very strong lesson.

While Im not an advocate of psycho behavior, if Tiger is/was screwing around, he got off (no pun intended) mildly. I know women who would have taken a razor and/or knife to him, taken him for medical attention and stuck around to nurse him back to health. It NEVER ceases to amaze me that people think they can behave a center way w/out consequences. Again, Im saying go Norman Bates on someone, but it should be expected where someone's heart is concerned.

Sorry,but his wife's face is not very attractive.Yes, she certainly is not ugly!But she also isn't too pretty either. But of course as long as he loves her, that's really all that should matter in the end.Of course other peoples opinions should not matter as it is.She proabably is the most gorgeous woman in his eyes,which for certainly is the way it should be!!!I hope you guys work out whatever problems you guys are having.Especially for your two precious kids sake.God bless you guys!!!

Funny thing about Tiger Woods that I never was able to figure out was his demeanor. Tiger in his professional life had everything that anybody could ever ask for. Money, gorgeous trophy wife and kids, dubbed the greatest golfer, all the trappings of fame and fortune. Yet is facade always seemed brooding and even melancholy to me. Fans evidently wrote this off as concentration on a difficult sport. When the cops come to your door and ask to talk to you in my neck of the woods even if you not required? to do so you better go out and say something. Where I am you can ask for an attorney but you do get your Miranda rights read and you are usually arrested at that point if there is probable cause or at the least remanded to the precinct where they decide whether to arrest and detain you for the next arraignment. Then it is bail and the DA and maybe a trial by your peers. You do not have to admit guilt at any time and you are represented by counsel. Tiger is a superstar and maybe that is why he turned away the police seeking information several times. He also retained a defense lawyer which may or may not indicate pending criminal charges. In my view, sending away the cops was not smart. No matter who you are, it is still the criminal justice system and under any condition it is better for the individual to at least acknowledge cops at the door.

Wait.. Why was there no police report and blood screen to see if he was under the influence of narcotics/drugs. He has already admitted that he was taking prescription drugs and he was driving or operating a car. It is called a DUI. Why was he not charged in the accident. Destroying a public fire hydrant is caused for a ticket by itself! Can we say.. "Special privilege for a Celebrity!" If this happened to anyone else they would have written a ticket, taken a blood screen/other tests and charged with DUI!! Tiger has not talked to police yet.. Sounds like he is cleaning his system or purging himself of toxins..
Tiger Woods getting into a car accident?
$10,000 or more?
Elin woods beating Tiger's car with his gulf club..
$2,000 or more..
Tiger NOT GETTING A DUI FOR BEING UNDER THE INFLUENCE!!! PRICELESS!!!
