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.
