Wife Told Cops Tiger Boozed on Crash Day

12/7/2009 5:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Florida Highway Patrol wanted to get a blood test from Tiger Woods after the crash, because a witness told them Tiger was boozing earlier in the day -- this according to new documents obtained by TMZ.



FHP had requested Tiger's blood sample, after a witness -- we're told his wife -- "stated that the driver had consumed alcohol earlier in the day and the same witness removed the driver from the vehicle after the collision."

The document continues, "The same witness stated that the driver was prescribed medication (Ambien and Vicatin [sic]}."

As we first reported, it was Elin Nordegren who pulled Tiger from the crash and told cops he had taken medicine (but she didn't know when) and even brought the pill bottles to the EMTs.

The document concludes, "Impairment of the driver is also suspected due to the careless driving that resulted in the traffic crash."

Ultimately, the FHP's request for the blood sample was denied, on grounds of insufficient evidence to issue a subpoena.

The FHP has determined alcohol was not a factor.

Here in Oregon if a person refuses to take a blood alcohol test, they don't have to. BUT they get their license removed from them.

Florida has so few laws that are of any use to humanity, I don't blame people for living there.

Look at OJ Simpson. Florida was a haven for him and his money for years.

Look at child molesters.........zillions of them live in Florida. They rape and murder little kids (especially tiny girls) and might get a little time in jail.

I see no redeeming value in the state of Florida.

And I don't blame Tiger for living there and telling the police what to do and when to do it.

Of course he was drunk!!!!! How else could he have thought those skanks were good looking, and having them lick and lap all over him? YUK!!!!

I don't think Tiger has finished grieving for his daddy. I know that has a lot to do with his actions. He loved his daddy. I think he wanted a family atmosphere and married, thinking that was going to fill the void his daddy left, but it didn‘t. He needs to finish grieving.

IT ISN'T ANYONE'S BIZ.. Tiger was NOT drunk and there was NO evidence of alcohol according to the ER staff. What IS going on here is that TIGER dominated the rich cracker white bread mofo's sport of GOLF! They've been mad about that from day one. He lives in a WHITE BREAD area, they hate that too. But you know what? WHAAA!.. I hope it just biles them over.
HAD the hospital found drugs or booze in his system they are LEGALLY BOND to report it. They did not so there was NONE.

The lot of you are blaming him for everything, but let me tell you how it really works. IT TAKES TWO to MAKE IT, IT TAKES TWO TO BREAK IT!.. Ellin isn't an innocent victim here, nor is Tiger a monster. What you all really know about the Woods family wouldn't cover the head of a pin and that just really eats at yall doesn't it. LOL..
The lot of you are insulting, speculating and carrying on about some one else because you have NOTHING of your own.lol

I want to see Tiger crash and burn. I want to see him end up in a mental hospital under suicide watch. I want him to pay for all of his "transgressions". I take immense pleasure seeing all the negative reports about Tiger. Give me more! Let's all be happy Tiger with all that money is probably one of the most depressed and lonely persons 24/7.........HA HA HA!!
