Tiger Woods Issues A Statement Regarding His Car Accident Drama


As you may have heard, pro golfer Tiger Woods got himself into a pretty nasty car accident in the wee hours on Friday morning after he reportedly got into an argument with his wife Elin Nordegren over alleged reports that he was cheating on her with a woman named Rachel Uchitel … then came the car accident, then came the drama. Yesterday, Tiger posted an official statement on his official website in response to the swirling drama caused by his accident, it reads:

As you all know, I had a single-car accident earlier this week, and sustained some injuries. I have some cuts, bruising and right now I’m pretty sore.

This situation is my fault, and it’s obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I’m human and I’m not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn’t happen again.

This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way. Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible.

The only person responsible for the accident is me. My wife, Elin, acted courageously when she saw I was hurt and in trouble. She was the first person to help me. Any other assertion is absolutely false.

This incident has been stressful and very difficult for Elin, our family and me. I appreciate all the concern and well wishes that we have received. But, I would also ask for some understanding that my family and I deserve some privacy no matter how intrusive some people can be.

Yeah, no … I do not believe for a second that his wife is innocent in all of this. To be clear, this is my personal opinion but it really does sound like the sequence of events was Argument (where Tiger’s face got scratched BEFORE his car accident, after all there was no blood found on the steering wheel of his car and yet his face was scratched up), Accident (where he drove first into a fire hydrant and then into a neighbor’s tree … as if he was trying to get the hell away from his wife) and then Drama (neither Tiger nor his wife will talk to police, he turned them away 3 times since the accident). I understand the police are even investigating securing a warrant to search the Woods’ house for evidence cuz neither Tiger nor Elin will talk. Why won’t they talk to police??? My guess is he’s gonna do everything he can to brush this drama under the rug … we’ll have to see if the police will work hard enough and do what is necessary to get the truth out of the Woods couple. DRAMA!!!!! What do y’all think … do you, unlike me, believe it really was all Tiger’s fault and no one else’s?

    If Elin did indeed cause the scratches to Tiger’s face and case him with a golf club, then she should be arrested for domestic violence. Sounds like Tiger is covering for his wife. No matter what he did, she is not allowed to attack him!

  • Lauren

    I agree with you Trent. Something isn’t adding up. His wife went crazy and now they want to cover it all up. I hope that the police do get a search warrent and uncover the truth. If they didn’t have anything to hide then they would have talked to the police. B*tch is crazy and you can’t hide that for long!

  • Cicci

    Um..I actually belive it’s his fault entirely; I belive he was raving drunk, had an argument with his wife and did as so many do – storm out and drove away. Although he didn’t come very far:)

    If I was under the threat of DUI – accusations, I would also delay my appointment with authorities as long as I could.

    • @Cicci — Yes, you do have a point about the DUI … but what about the scratches?

  • Laure75

    Leave them alone! it seems to me it is between them, and no-one else! why is the police meddling into this? If HE doesn’t want them to and SHE doesn’t either, and he pays damages to his neighbour for that tree then I really don’t see how it is anyone else’s business!!!

  • Jadedkitten

    He cheated she founded and beat his ass end of story.

  • Jadedkitten

    *Found out…….it’s too early and I clearly need more coffee

  • Laure75

    And he could have scratched his face while she was pulling him out of the car – he is pretty heavy and was unconscious. Might have scratched it with some fallen branches of that tree.
    Or scratched his face earlier in the day, who knows??! and whose business is it??

    • @Laure75 — “whose business is it??” Well, it’s the police’s business to find out if this was a matter of domestic violence. You can’t seriously believe that an allegation of domestic violence should not be investigated no matter that the couple wants to keep the matter private.

  • Meghan

    If it was Tiger who had scratched and beat up his wife, I doubt there would be so many saying it is a “private” matter. Women can also be abusive and should be treated equally in the eyes of the law.

  • Mr. Gyllenhaal

    I think they fought and he was drunk and hit the tree! I am sure there is more to the store thou!!!

  • C

    Yea i’m with everyone, this is a very fishy story. I think they fought, she scratched him, he was either impaired with alcohol or perhaps pain meds and maybe she was chasing him and thats what cause him to swerve…I would like to know where there kids were when this was taking place, the argument and the accident…if there really was an altercation no matter how provoked on either side, the kids well beings are in danger.

  • Lori

    When taken to er they draw tox and etoh screen.part of uncoscious victim protocol. He was not drunk. He was unconscious so protocol dictates head ct to rule out bleed. If negative he is discharged home…which he was. If he had been over the limit…there would already b a DUI charge.privacy laws do not extend to driving under the influence.

  • Siobhan

    I think they more care about whether he was intoxicated in some way, be it alcohol or pain pills. If they are really only investigating because they think it might be domestic violence, well, I think they should just move on. Neither he nor his wife want to talk about it so chances are charges won’t be filed unless there is clear evidence of domestic violence and they want to proceed without cooperation. I can’t help but to think they are making a huge deal out of this because he is Tiger Woods.

  • LOL Lauren: can’t hide a crazy b*tch for long! ha!
    Tiger is kind of a prick. However, having worked at a celebrity pro-am event he played, I can’t imagine what life must be like for him. It only took a few holes before hundreds of people had surrounded him. I’d probably be a prick, too.
    However, he’s not above the law. To those who question why he can’t just be left alone – would the cops leave YOU alone if you wrecked your car and took out a fire hydrant and your neighbor’s tree at 2 am? He’s not above the law.

  • Laura

    He wasn’t drunk, police have already said alcohol wasn’t a factor.

  • SuziLee

    I def think something fishy happened. The whole scratches thing – yet no blood on the steering wheel and ummm if you need to get someone out of the car quickly – you don’t bash in the back window. You would do the passenger side window… you’d bash in the back window if you were chasing a car…. Just sayin’… They should just come clean w/what happened. I don’t think a woman should get away any easier from domestic violence than a man.

  • Sweet_Lady

    if the tabloids are correct, they fought over the fact that he cheated and she went nuts on him with the golf club.

  • Kendra

    @Meghan & SuziLee – I totally agree..I’ve actually read people’s comments saying that if it was their husband, they’d beat him up, too! If a man said that about his wife, people would jump all over him!! If she DID attack him, she needs to face the consequences..I think the whole situation is unfortunate for everyone involved and I hope that, in the end, justice is served, no matter what the outcome..

  • Ama

    While I dislike people who cheat with a passion, if his wife did indeed abuse him for it. I believe that she should be punished. That being said, I believe that Mr. Woods and his wife are saying this now, and not talking to the police because they don’t want their children to have to deal with the after effect of their actions. They probably want their children to stay innocent to this whole ordeal. Which is why they are trying to quickly get it out of the news(If the police dig into it, it can be in the news for a long period of time.) I don’t know really -_-;
    * * *
    I think everyone involved in this event can take fault to it happening. But it’s done, it already happened, no one can change that. Now all that is left is for them to pick up the pieces and to hopefully fix the problem so it doesn’t happen again.

  • AmyM

    i still get the giggles thinking about you saying “Lawd. Drama.” on your previous posting about this story, Trent. I laughed my butt off!
    Hope these people talk to the police and get their shiz together. domestic abuse madness must end!

  • brittany

    What about the idea that they are trying to keep quiet because maybe he did cheat and is trying to keep his fan base and keep his wife out of trouble. Another possibility. I just hope lessons are learned no matter what the case may be.

  • Z

    The police do need to get to the bottom of this – and they definitely have the right to – b/c if it is a case of domestic violence, the safety and welfare of the children need to be addressed. What if the police did ignore this and next month we read that the wife went crazy b/c of the cheating allegations and committed murder/suicide? Then everyone would be on the police for not preventing it when there were obvious signs of trouble.

  • Jody

    I say butt the hell out. The police dont need to get involved as it is a personal matter. no one was hurt, and it isnt drug or alcohol related. All these gossipmongers out there will take a situation that doesn’t concern them and run it into the ground hurting people they don’t even KNOW. Is tiger your friend? Is Elin your sister? Are their kids deserving of the trash talk from people who can’t and won’t ever know the stress they live under every day? Mind your own damn business, and find something else to talk shit about.

  • lisa

    He’s not talking because he’s not required to – 5th Amendment – and his lawyer almost definitely has advised him not to. Police cannot force him to talk, nor can they force her to talk.

    They also cannot get a search warrant for the house without probable cause that a crime was committed there or evidence relating to a crime is being stored there. Based on what I’ve heard in the media, they don’t have anywhere near enough facts to establish the legal standard for probable cause.

    I understand everyone’s concern that police “get to the bottom of this,” but there are due process and civil rights issues which dictate the procedure. A “hunch” or “instinct” isn’t going to cut it. Without more than they have now (as it has been released to the media), it is very unlikely any charges will be or should be filed.

  • Ron

    Look….Tiger has done what he is required to do legally which is show his license, registration, and proof of insurance. He’s done that and that should end the need for police involvement.

    However, as the world’s biggest athlete and in this age of twitter, internet, 24 hour news cycle, and intense paparazzi he has to understand that the story is fishy, particularly coming off the heels of the National Enquirer story. The fact that the woman he is alleged to have had an affair with is now tied up with Gloria Allred only adds to the trashiness of it all. Tiger’s silence only raises more questions and he must realize that. But we the curious bystanders must also realize that he doesn’t have to explain anything if he doesn’t want to. Thats his right. It will continue to cause us to speculate and come to our own conclusions but so what. People are gonna talk.

  • Elle

    Tiger is embarassed that he got his ass beat by his wife. He left the house with no shoes on, which in the state of Florida it is illeagal to drive without shoes. I understand he has a fifth amendment right, but noone, man or woman should feel embarassed to have been beaten and hide the fact/or make accuses for their attacker. Rhianna leaving Chris Brown made a huge impact this year for women who are/were being beaten. She left the situation and was given respect for it. Tiger needs to grow a pair of balls, instead of hitting them on the golf course and stand up for himself, and other men that fall prey to abusive women and take a stand. It is not only women that get beaten, there are many men that are brutally beaten by women, but there is more of a shame factor when the roles are reversed so the later is less known.

  • eric

    the truth – his wife confronted about his affair on thanksgiving night they got in an argument she was chasing him with the golf club when got in the car and speed off. She followed him down the drive he hit the tree and she knocked out the back window. The lacerations on his face were caused by her while they were still in the house.

  • Aly

    Oh em gee!! Leave poor Tiger alone…stop using the fact that you think his wife “abused” him as an excuse to know what happened…just be honest and state that you all are noisy and want to know the biz!! LoL! I admit it!!

  • kittkatt357

    Okay, I admit it, I’m nosy and want to know all the biz! lol!
