Police seek Tiger Woods's hospital records: report

Golf pro still refusing to talk to police

Tiger Woods may want to keep the details of the mysterious car crash that left him laying on the ground outside his Florida home on Friday private, but it seems unlikely he’ll get his wish. This morning, celebrity gossip website TMZ credited unnamed sources with reports that Florida Highway Patrol is seeking a search warrant for the golf phenom’s hospital records. According to the website, the police want to determine whether the cuts and bruises Woods sustained were caused by the car accident or domestic violence. On his website, Woods stated that “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.” Elin told police she took a golf club to the windows of his Cadillac SUV to help him out. The accident, and speculation about alleged domestic violence, comes after the National Enquirer alleged Woods had become romantically involved with a New York night club hostess. The woman, Rachel Uchitel, told the Associated Press that the allegations were false.
