FHP Spokesman: No Tiger Search Warrant Sought

Fox News reports this morning:

No Search Warrant In Tiger Woods Car Accident

The Florida Highway Patrol says it is not seeking a search warrant in the Tiger Woods car crash case. This statement contradicts what celebrity Web site TMZ earlier reported. The Web site claims authorities in Florida are trying to obtain a search warrant to enable them to seize medical records from the hospital that treated Tiger Woods, TMZ reported.

Florida Highway Patrol Chief of Public Affairs Capt. Mark Welch.: “We don’t need a warrant to get records, that is incorrect.

Similarly,Tom Rinaldi of ESPN this morning reports that Florida Highway Patrol sources have told him they have “no knowledge” of a search warrant being sought in the car accident case of Tiger Woods.

ESPN.com also reports:

When contacted by ESPN, FHP spokeswoman Kim Miller said the FHP has made no such statements to anyone regarding warrants.

The FHP has repeatedly stated that it would not investigate the crash as a possible domestic dispute, which might be why a medical records warrant has not been sought.
