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.

Interesting.... His WIFE told them he was on drugs and there was insufficient evidence to get a warrant? His wife told them he was boozing and there was insufficient evidence to get a warrant? What does it take to get arrested in FLA?

Tiger, time to fall on your sword.
It's the only honorable thing you can do.

There is absolutely nothing you can do now that can ever
restore your life never mind your reputation and income.

It's over Tiger. It's all over. I can't imagine anything worse
that could happen to a family besides a terminal illness or the death of a child. It's just such a shame you purposely ruined the charmed lives of your wife and children with your arrogant and stupid behavior. For the love of God, your son is only a few
months old!

The sooner you leave, the sooner they can heal.

People like Tiger Woods keep our lives soooooo enjoyabe by having dirt to talk about, why because they live the so called perfect life, money fame etc. Enough of all this drama.He wants fame he got fame and thats all he has, He robbed himself of dignity, respect and honor like far too many celebraties who think they are above it all.His lies caught up with him as he so deserves. He wanted privacy then he should have remained quiet. HE chose his lifestyle because of his love for golf, he chose his wife because of love he has children because of love. Love has boundries that should be of values pride and respect so when he chose to spread that love outside those boundries he got caught as he should have,,,fell sorry for him...heavens NO his so called love turned on him as did his name.

When the rabid media finishes with him, he will definitely have the reality of being black in america, if he did not before. He is at the top of a sport that has historically excluded us at every turn. He is mentally fit. IF he can play through his Dad's last days then he can come out on top on this.

He messed up horribly. I hope he gets away from golf, work on himself and his family, and possibly move away from America. There is always a need in America to demonize an African American male. He needs a better PR person. HE has done a lot of good for a great many kids and made money for lots of corporations. THese people need to step up to the plate with positive information. What a sick country, and what a sick website.

The wife is not a victim here either. I guarantee that.

Can someone explain to me why my 21 year old daughter was pulled over sat night,pulling into her parking spot at her apt, blew a .10 and was arrested right there, taken to jail where she wasn't released for 20 hours because it was a sunday and "the paperwork" was taking longer.And I am not defending the arrest of my daughter, it was legitimate, but A celebrity crashes his car, police come and the wife admits he had been drinking sometime during that day and is taking ambien and they don't even test him or site him for dui. He is not taken to jail, and the cops have determined it was just "careless driving". I am so sick of celebrities being treated differently. My daughter was at the exact same jail in van nuys where; Stephanie Pratt was released in 2 hours, Pamela Bach in 3 hours (with a prior dui) and Lindsay Lohan who spent 5 hours there. It's ridiculous, the system is so not fair.
