Report: Woods had ‘fat lip’ 4 days after accident

Tiger Woods had a “fat lip” but no other visible facial

injuries when he met with Florida state troopers four days after

the car accident outside his home, according to a television


Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Kim Montes told WESH-TV in

Orlando on Wednesday that Woods and his attorney met with troopers

on Dec. 1.

Montes and other FHP officials did not immediately return

several phone messages and e-mails from The Associated Press.

The meeting at an undisclosed location in Orlando came after

troopers tried for three days to meet with Woods about the accident

in which his sport utility vehicle crashed into a fire hydrant and

tree outside his home.

The officers arranged the meeting to deliver a $164 citation for

careless driving and to see if Woods had any injuries that were

inconsistent with a car accident, Montes told the TV station.

Woods had a “fat lip,” but no other visible injuries and

officers had no reason to believe the golfer was a victim of

domestic violence, Montes told WESH-TV.

Woods has not been seen in public since the accident. He

announced on Dec. 10 that he was taking an indefinite leave of

absence from the U.S. PGA Tour to focus on repairing his marriage

after admitting his infidelity.
