If you google Tiger Woods right now you’ll see everything from “Getting to know the many loves of Tiger” to housing prices on the road he crashed on. Tiger Woods’ accident has opened a pandora’s box of trash reporting.
And it’s true that by several accounts he was likely speeding and ‘driving angry’, there’s still no indication drugs or alcohol were involved. And people seem… disappointed.
While the district attorney would have final say, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said he can’t fathom Woods facing even a misdemeanor charge like reckless driving for Tuesday’s crash.
“We don’t contemplate any charges whatsoever,” Villanueva told reporters. “This remains an accident; an accident is not a crime. They do happen, unfortunately.”
Woods did not show any signs of being drunk or under the influence of drugs, according to the sheriff. Investigators didn’t even bring in a drug recognition expert, a deputy who is specially trained to spot signs of impairment from drugs.
“This is what it is, an accident,” Villanueva said. “A reckless driving charge has a lot of elements to it. This is purely an accident.”
So pull your dogs back. He’s likely guilty of something you’ve done a thousand times. Let him recover some before we strip him of all he has.
