Tiger Woods -- Bloodless Clues

12/1/2009 11:19 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods did not bleed in the vehicle he crashed Friday morning -- not a single drop -- according to law enforcement sources.

Cops from the Windermere PD, who first responded on scene, observed Tiger's lower lip split open and we're told he had other marks as well. But TMZ sources say there was absolutely no blood in the SUV.

What's more -- we've learned Tiger's wife, Elin Nordegren, told Windermere cops she smashed the back passenger window with the golf club, then unlocked the driver's door and dragged Tiger out. Yet there were no traces of blood.

This has created even more suspicion with law enforcement ... that Tiger's wounds may have not been the result of SUV meets fire hydrant.

We're told the Florida Highway Patrol has been frustrated by attempts to secure video of the accident. Even though we know there were surveillance cameras on Tiger's property, his lawyer isn't making video available. The people who manage the gated community have said they have no video of the crash.

As we first reported, the FHP sent troopers to the hospital where Tiger was treated yesterday in an attempt to secure medical records, which could unlock the mystery of how Tiger was injured. We're told, so far no luck. Although an FHP spokesperson has said the department has not asked for a search warrant to obtain medical records, we know they are pursuing that route.

As for what charges could be filed -- there are two possibilities on the table. The main focus now is Tiger's injuries. If the injuries have the markers of a domestic dispute, we're told Tiger's wife would almost certainly be arrested.

As for Tiger, troopers are looking at whether he was driving under the influence. As we have already reported, the paramedics on the scene saw that Tiger was unresponsive and asked Elin if he was taking any meds. She went inside, retrieved two prescription bottles and gave them to paramedics. Elin said she did not know when Tiger had last taken the meds. We already reported Tiger had told a friend he was taking prescription pain meds.

Geez    

There is a LOT OF MONEY on the line if this is more complicated than it seems to be. Thats why theres this apparent shield of protection all around Woods.

If the wife beat on Tiger whether something happened or not, its not justified, its criminal.

Hum he cheats on her she gets emotional (goodness forbid) yet she will be the one arrested for domestic violence? What about emotional violence?! Cheating should be grounds for arrest also.

IF HE'S CHEATING HE DESERVES A BEATING!

If he is cheating he is physical endangering his wife with the possibility of sexually transmitted dieases, the lady he is having affair with could go Fatal Attraction and harm Elin or the children etc. He puts his wife and family in danger by cheating. If he is cheating she had EVERY right to beat his ass!
Cheating is criminal & should be punishable by law if you are married and agreed to be faithful til death do you part!

First: if his wife caught him cheating and just smacked him upside the face, he's lucky. I would have cut his putter off.

Second: None of this would be relevant to the police or the media if he wasn't who he is.

Third: Let it go already. If this guy cheated, you KNOW someone will come out with it and what does he care? He has billions of dollars. If he never golfed or worked again in his life, he'd still have the rest of us schmucks beat in the money department.
