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.

Rehab by this time next week. I'm betting on Sierra Tucson, foremost in treating multiple addictions, including sexual addictions. Headline will say "undisclosed hospital in arizona."

Another case of preferential treatment for a celebrity, anyone else would've been tested.

Many stories have referenced Rachel's habit of enjoying Ambien sex. Ha.
I do think it's sad that the judge seems to have overridden common sense with his Tiger-worship. What logical reason would you use in deciding not to allow the officers to get a blood test? Wife, neighbor and cops all saw behavior (snoring in the yard) that seemd indicative of drug or alcohol use.
This chump change fine would not happen to you or I.

People are so naive. Ask yourself four little questions: 1. Why was 'the witness, Elin Nordegren, carrying a golf club in one hand, and two bottles of Tiger's prescription drugs in the other? Try 'rescuing' someone with a golf club to smash the window of a car when both hands were occupied. 2. Where was Tiger Woods headed at 2:15 a.m., and why? 3. Wouldn't you bring a cell phone and not a golf club to the scene of an accident involving a loved one? 4. What does the computer chip in the Escalade, designed to record speed and all instrument and gear settings, indicate? Clearly this accident was completely staged, probably to cover up an assault. Falsifying evidence, misleading law enforcement investigators must not be that serious when they happen in the wealthy, private gated communities down in Florida.

I think Tiger has taken the phrase "Be like Mike" a little too literally.

He seems to have modeled his life after Michael Jordan and as such he might get off cheaper. Mike had to pay his wife 150 million.

Tiger is human and he make a mistake. We build up athletes and entertainers to such a high regard then wait for them to make a mistake and pound them into the ground. They we'll realize we still love him and root for him to come back. It happens all the time...Brittany Spears, Anna Nicole, Kobe Bryant, Martha Stewart, Robert Downey, etc. As for the details, yeah he broke a marital vow just like 1 in 3 people. Elin got upset, she scratched him, he took a few pills and there it is. Tiger has clearly had affairs with many women but it was all consensual if it wasn't discreet. Let's be honest, the only difference between Tiger Woods and Derek Jeter is that Tiger is married. He probably should not have taken that vow. Jeter has many women in his life but he's not married so he's sportsman of the year. Tiger broke a vow to his wife and he has to work that out but to make this story so big shows you the mentality of this world...hypocritical and lifeless.

Seriously, peeps, stop making excuses for Tiger. He didn't "make a mistake" LOL.

The ARSE MADE CONSTANT MISTAKES, WHICH MEANS THAT HE HAS NO INTEGRITY, AND IF YOU THINK YOU CAN TRUST A GUY WHO IS A SERIAL CHEAT ON A YOUNG WIFE, YOU ARE DIM!

Tiger had a gorgeous wife at home, a wife to whom HE PROPOSED, a wife who bore his kids, a wife who took a vow to be faithful.

WHAT A LOSER!
