Tiger Woods Won't Face Criminal Charges

Tiger Woods managed to avoid criminal charges today for his car accident last Friday. The Florida Highway Patrol announced today that Tiger is a fault for the crash, though no criminal charges will be pursued.

He will, however, be cited for the accident that occurred outside his Orlando mansion, and will be fined $164. That’s pretty much chump change to Tiger. The investigation into the matter is also closed as of today.

According to the official police report, Woods crashed his SUV into a fire hydrant and a tree at 2:25 a.m. Friday. The airbags did not deploy and Woods’ wife told Windermere police she used a golf club to smash the back windows to help him out.

In regards to the fight Tiger was having with his wife over an alleged affair, Sgt. Kim Montes of the FHP says there were "no claims of domestic violence by any individual" in the case and that were was "insufficient evidence" to try to seek Woods' medical records.

She said, "Mr. Woods has satisfied the requirements of Florida law.”

That’s at least one positive thing in this whole mess. Unfortunately now Tiger has to start patching up things at home. And it doesn’t help that a second woman has now come forward claiming to have had an affair with him.
