Oops, I did it again.
Tiger Woods has found a way into the tabloids again for all wrong reasons. Recently, he was discovered bleeding and semi-conscious after his car hit a tree and fire hydrant outside his Florida home. The 14-time major champion, however, said alcohol was “not involved” in his arrest while driving in Florida.
In his defence, Tiger said, “I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications,”
After the events in 2009–Tiger has been fiercely protective of his personal life, and his clean-cut image has helped him amass a fortune through product endorsements and appearance fees. The 33-year-old American, who won his first major at the age of 21 is regarded as one of the world’s all-time great golfers.
The image released after Tiger’s arrest sends one in real shock as the legend looks dishevelled, bleary-eyed and unshaven!
Police records show the 41-year-old golfer was pulled over at about 03:00 local time (07:00 GMT) near his home in Jupiter and later taken into custody. He was released from Palm Beach County Jail “on his own recognisance”, meaning he promised in writing to co-operate with future legal proceedings.
