Tiger Woods’ facial lacerations on Friday weren’t caused by his car accident, but by his wife, Elin Nordegren, who attacked him in the midst of a heated argument over reports of his infidelity.
According to TMZ, Woods detailed the circumstances of the accident to someone other than a law enforcement official.
Florida Highway Patrol officers plan to interview Woods on Saturday afternoon.
After Nordegren’s attack, Woods decided to leave, but as he was driving away in his 2009 Cadillac Escalade she followed him and repeatedly struck the SUV with a golf club. (It was earlier reported that she smashed the rear window using a golf club to pull Woods out of the car following the accident)
The accident happened when a distracted Woods, believing he had stopped, looked back to check on what Nordegren had done. The still moving Escalade drove into a fire hydrant and then hit a tree.
Woods says he had been taking prescription pain medicines, which could explain why he appeared dazed after the accident.
oh lord what a mess! Wonder if he’ll finally address this entire debacle.
Maybe he’ll learn to keep it in his pants.
