Florida Troopers Go After Tiger

12/1/2009 3:58 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Florida Troopers Go After TigerLaw enforcement sources tell TMZ the Florida Highway Patrol will move to have charges filed against Tiger Woods in connection with the accident last Friday.

We are told the FHP will announce the case is against Tiger -- not his wife. We do not know if the FHP will arrest Tiger or refer the case to prosecutors.

We know FHP was investigating whether Tiger was driving his SUV under the influence.

Tiger was drifting in and out of consciousness after the accident. As we first reported, his wife gave paramedics two bottles of prescription meds she says Tiger had taken though she did not know when. There was no evidence of alcohol.

The FHP is holding a news conference at 3:00 PM ET. We will livestream.

Leave the guy alone. He didn't hurt anybody and is trying to do the right thing by protecting his family's privacy. FHP looks bad the more they pursue this.

Michael Jackson had his issues, but one thing he did well (other than his music) was protecting his children's privacy. The moment he died, that all went to heck.

Leave Tiger and his wife alone.

Just another example of going over board when it comes to investigating black men. He crashed his own car and no one was hurt but himself. Also, even if his wife did hit him, he does not want to file charges on her. Any charges the cops file are just them wanting to go after a rich black dude who won't give them a statement and they want to show Tiger what they can do.

This is actually a very positive development, because Tiger should be arrested for DUI drugs if indeed he was on prescription medications when he jumped into his car and crashed into a tree and fire hydrant.

Anyone else would be arrested for that in Florida, TIger. Even people who are NOT on any kind of drugs (and cause NO damage and committ NO traffic violations) can get arrested for DUI drugs in FLorida, and I am not kidding about that.

So, if you are arrested for it, and you did it, well, that's life. In the Real World. Not your cloistered celebrity world, Tiger Land.

I hope they storm his house with a SWAT team and tase him. He shouldn't have lied. He basically is going down for protecting his wife.

The story here seems pretty clear. Tiger was high on pain medication and got into a fight with Elin. Tiger decided he'd had enough and tried to leave. Elin recognized he shouldn't be driving and tried to stop him (scratches on face). Tiger left anyway, and in his drugged state, crashed the car. Elin smashed window with golf club and pulled him out. Fits every line in his official statement and all the evidence so far. He's going to get charged with DUI and he will eventually admit guilt.
