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.

You folks who think that that priveleged people aren't above Florida's mandatory breathalyzer or blood tests are misguided.

~20 years ago I was T-boned by a wealthy Seafood packing business owner in Jacksonville, FL. who was clearly intoxicated. I could hear him singing sloppy drunk Xmas carols in the back of the rescue and smell the booze from him too. His party friends all came to the ER and were saying how they were going to 'fry' the person who hit their "howie". Hell, it was him driving drunk without any lights on!

Anyway, his insurance co. settled for a pittance, he was never charged for the accident..?????, and I still deal with daily pain from those injuries.

Think Justice is equal? my ass.

Some people using the medicine Ambien have engaged in activity such as driving, eating, or making phone calls and later having no memory of the activity. It has been scientifically proven...google it and find out! Not that I'm minimizing Tiger's adulterous affairs, I'm just coming to some sort of defense in regards to his car crash...

Tiger Woods is a big spoiled baby. He is like so many stars and with the money and fame he thinks he is above the rules.

I am happy to see that everyone clearly knows he is a fraud.

If Nike had any guts they would get rid of him now!

Wasn't Tiger treated as an overdose patient at hospital.

If Elin did suspect that, she would of cause tell the medical team about what he had taken!

BTW I don't know the threshold for drunk driving in Florida.
Here in Sweden it is 0.02% (up to 6 months imprisonment)
