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.

Hmmm....all this build up for a wreckless driving charge and a $164 fine? TMZ, nice try. Hopefully the witch hunt is over.

An assault on private property is still an assault, and should be investigated by the cops.

Could have been Tiger's wife was using the 9-iron on his face before the wreck!

This is a sad story - he had such a clean image before. Statistics say that the more money a person makes, the more likely they are to engage in an extra-marital affair!

"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."

Is this a supportive move by his wife or is she trying to get him charged with driving while high on drugs???

Ha ha! FHP isn't doing anything but issuing a ticket. Just goes to show what a douchebag this site is with all of its 'credible' sources. Turns out they don't know diddly squat. You'll have to change half the content on your pages now while you're eating crow.

Hmmmm, as much as I think Tiger Woods is a lot of media hype, he is entitled to some kind of privacy. Sadly, it think it goes to show what a bunch of a$$hole$ work for TMZ to actually consider this $hit newsworthy. Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite must be spinning in theirs graves.

There have been and continue to be massive crimes being perpetrated on the Merkin public but rather than track down CEOs, CFO etc who got million dollar bonuses for businesses that had to be bailed out, you idiots chase bull$hit.

TMZ If their chartered a 747 for a staff vaction and it vanished into the Atlantic with all hands, I'd be upset about the flight crew but not the pile of manure cargo.

Oh. By the way, I loved the caption to piece titling it "Celebrity Justice".

Like you are an actual authority on it. Why don't you do everyone a favour and post the next update to this story where it belongs:

The Craigslist Rant and Rave. It would be right at home with the rest of of the intolerant, racist crap on there.

Nice job TMZ!! Quite the breaking news story you've got the scoop on! Will you be reporting on jaywalking tickets next? How about parking tickets?

These comments are so funny and pathetic because it is obvious
that no one has a life of their own. They live precariously
through others, make up their own stores and conclusions, etc.
Lo ve to read these!! Like Tiger Wood cares. His life will go
on and he will be fine.
