WHY the secrecy around Tiger Woods Auto Accident? What's missing?

  1. Michael Willis profile image78
    Michael Willisposted 8 years ago

    Ok, an accident. Sounds simple. No alcohol related report. Good!
    But, why have the state troopers still not able to speak to Tiger about this? Sure does sound like a cover-up! If the accident was a no issue, why would not Tiger just tell the state troopers what happened and be done with it? Simple!
    Makes one think something is being hidden the way it is unraveling.
    I am a big Tiger fan. He is awesome at golf. You and I would not get away with avoiding giving a statement to police. WE would be in jail instantly for not complying. Fame is no excuse to avoid legal issues!!!!!

      supposedly they were in an argument about him having an affair, and his wife caused the lacerations on his face. i guess they need time to get their stories straight.

        Hi Cosette. I hope the affair is just a rumor. He seems to be a family man "in the press." I hope Tiger and his wife works things out and this can just blow over.

      Nobody, famous or otherwise, is required to give a statement to the police.

      It's a domestic issue.  He's just embarrassed.  People need to drop it.  It's his life.  If he wants a mistress... then he needs to work that out with his wife.  Could you imagine the backlash if Tiger swung a club at her?  He's just protecting his family and himself.

      Would anyone care if it was just some ordinary guy at a trailer park?

      Sounds about right!  Even drunk you wouldn't miss the turn you take every single time you get in your car. He was not late for an appointment 2 in the morning.  So he was running from something...very fast! Why was she outside of the car instead of in it?  Why would she have a golf club in her hand outside of the car? Why would she think she would need it and why would she take the time to grab it if she just saw him crash? Hummmm

    And why is it a real concern to be talked about in a forum?

    Just a thought.

    1. Michael Willis profile image78
      Michael Willisposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Like anything else talked about in a forum? Why is any topic a concern then?
      oops, A thought I guess as you would say.

      1. Cagsil profile image83
        Cagsilposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Because, in the end, it's all wasted time, because he is just a person, regardless of anything else.

        There bigger things people could be talking about besides this.

        No wonder why the world is screwed up? Everyone too busy sticking their nose into other people's business.

        I'm outta here. Enjoy.

        I wondered the same thing. it's certainly worth posting about for tiger fans, in contrast to some of the ridiculous threads started about so and so needs a fan.

        I know he is very private about his life. the media will blow everything up as always...

    Yeah, I am a big Tiger Woods fan too.  I am a bit concern with Tiger's silence over the accident.  I posted a hub to the Hubpages community when the story first broke.  Hopefully, things will start clearing up on the accident.

  6. Michael Willis profile image78

    I hope things clear up also. Celebrities should be accountable to the same standard of "Law" as the rest of us, altho that will never happen.

      The thing is...if you had an accident like this, the entire world would not know about it. No one could care less.

    Uninvited Writerposted 8 years ago

    Everything is not a conspiracy. No one know what went on. Just because some rumour says they were talking about an affair does not make it true. Don't believe everything you read on the Internet.

    Scott.Lifeposted 8 years ago

    There's no alcohol report that we know of, but then again just because he didn't get a blood test or breathalyzer at the hospital doesn't mean he wasn't drinking. Maybe that's why the police want to talk to him so bad. Why weren't they called at the scene, and why didn't they take a statement at the hospital? Let's see an average joe get out of talking to the police after smashing his car by itself....must be nice to be a famous wealthy, sports star.

    I am not famous, never have been. I have done this and got away with it in my past under threat of arrest. He is human, maybe he needed to go to the store for something important like tampons for his wife? wink Screw the cops, let them find evidence  of wrongdoing, that's there job.

    Yeah screw the cops if you can break the law and get away with it then its okay. Funny how its only criminal if you go to jail, or if you do it and get away with it you're just clever. Someone else does it and gets someone hurt well they deserve jail time. Gotta love the new American attitude.

      ralwusposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Well Scott, it is not law for him to make a statement. The burden is on the State Patrol. I agree, celebrities do get away with some things we don't like, but in this case I have to side with Tiger as he is within his rights. I am sure the truth will prevail in the end. I am not going to speculate on what happened  or what the cause was, but I will defend his and our rights as citizens and his choice to remain silent for now.

    Don't cheat on your spouse after she has a new baby.. and don't expect not to get whacked upside your head with a frying pan I mean "golf club"

    I pray that the family is "all together" no time to mess around there are babies to be taken care of.

    As conspiracy theories go, "Golfer has a bit of a car crash" isn't exactly 'up there' with the 9/11, Roswell, or JFK ones is it? tongue

    prettydarkhorseposted 8 years ago

    The media always destroys reputation of personalities because they make money out of it.

    I also think that Tiger should have the responsibility to explain what happened to him to his fans.People specially the youth look up to personalities as models and he owe that to the youth at least. That is the prize of being famous in a hungry for gossip society.

    The police should do their job well and be consistent, and if they found out Tiger did something against the law, punish him..

    I believe the media is making it out to be more then it is because he is a celebrity, they are always looking to discredit someone and is merely another ploy to conquer and divide a nation. We are Tiger Woods fans to and what happened was his concern and business nobody was seriously injured or died that is what truly counts. If he was having an affair that is also is business we do not live in his home and we do not know what goes on behind closed doors. smile

    lrohnerposted 8 years ago

    Well, if it was a domestic dispute, good for Tiger that he opted to diffuse the situation by leaving -- or attempting to leave -- instead of picking up a golf club. If he is having an affair, then his reputation with me went down 3 notches. Since he didn't raise a hand to his wife, even to defend himself, his reputation just grew 3 notches in my book. So I guess we're back to where we started from! smile

      Thank you for being the first person (other than me) to say that!  This media storm would be far worse had he retaliated violently.  Maybe his silence in the immediate aftermath had more to do with protecting his wife from the spousal abuse charge, than protecting himself.  That was the only crime in this scenario...him getting a beat down from the wife. 

      Newsflash: Last night he announced his indefinite break away from golf - wow.  Golf is about to get back to boring.  I hope he's able to put this incident behind him soon, and get back on the course.  In his new statement it is also notable that he used the word "infidelity", as opposed to "transgressions".
