Tiger Woods is going to be issued a traffic ticket for his single-car crash on Friday.
CNN.com reports that the golfer is being charged with careless driving, and he’ll be orded to pay $164 in fines. He’ll also get four points on his license for the moving violation. The charges stem from his SUV collision early Friday when he struck a fire hydrant and then a neighbor’s tree while pulling out of his driveway.
Tiger and his wife Elin Nordegren, who reportedly pulled him from the vechile after the crash, have repeatedly declined to speak to the Florida Highway Patrol since the accident. However, authorities said that he has provided them with his driver’s license, registration and insurance information, thus meeting all requirements for vehicular accidents.
"Mr. Woods’ status in no way impacted our investigation or conclusion. The investigation has determined that Mr. Woods is at fault in the crash,” said. Maj. Cindy Williams of the FHP told CNN. "With the issuance of this citation, the Florida Highway Patrol has completed its investigation into this matter." Cops don’t have enough additional information to request a medical investigation into the matter.
And as Tiger’s alleged mistress Rachel Uchitel continues deny any extramarital relationship with the golfer, another woman has come forward to confess her affair with him.
Jamie Grubbs, who some may recognize from the first season of “Tool Academy,” claims she and Tiger were sleeping together since April 2007, E! Online reports. And, apparently, she’s got voicemails and more than 300 text messages as evidence of their extended tryst, include some 20 sessions in bed.
