TMZ: Child Services Visit Came After “Complaint”

TMZ.com has an anon-sourced follow on the allegation that officials from Florida’s state child and family protection agency visited Tiger Woods home with a police escort Saturday.

A representative from the Department (DCF) went to Tiger Woods’ home Friday for a “well-being check.” The official says the Department received a complaint — though we do not who it was from or the nature of the complaint. The Department then got in touch with the Orange County Sheriff to help get through security at Tiger’s gated community.

We’re told the visit was not part of an investigation, but rather a routine procedure when a complaint is lodged. The Department not only evaluates the safety of the children but the adults in the house as well. A formal investigation has not been opened — the case is being evaluated.

What we still don’t know is what prompted the complaint, and when it was lodged. Read more…

Claim: FL Child Protective Dept. Visited Tiger Home

RadarOnline.com alleged today that on Saturday, “the Florida Department of Children and Families, escorted by police, visited Tiger Woods’ home. … The visit stems from the events leading up to Tiger’s bizarre one-car crash right after Thanksgiving.

A marked police car escorted an unmarked car to Tiger’s house around midday Saturday. Typically investigators from DCF would want to evaluate the safety of a home for children after a domestic violence incident.

Woods and wife Elin Nordegren have a two-year-old daughter Sam and 10-month-old son Charlie.

Noted in Radar’s claim,  “Officials were at the home for roughly an hour”

The site also reports there is no confirmation that Tiger Woods was present for the DCF visit. Read more…

Elin’s Mother: On The Record About Tiger Woods

Barbro Holmberg, the mother of Elin Nordegren, spoke on the record to US Magazine about her daughter’s ordeal during Tiger Woods‘ now-admitted infidelity.

This is a private family matter,” Holmberg told Us. “I’m praying for everyone and everything to be OK. Please let’s just leave it at that.”

Holmberg’s take on Tiger’s alleged affair with Rachel Uchitel? “You seem to know more than enough already,” she told Us. “There is enough for them to handle already. Please can you give everyone space.”

Police Report Leaked, Woods Drank Before Crash

The ORLANDO SENTINEL reports today that, “Tiger Woods was drinking before he wrecked his SUV two weeks ago, a witness told a Florida Highway Patrol trooper.

That witness was the same person who pulled Woods from his damaged truck, a document released this afternoon states. Elin Nordegren Woods, Tiger Woods’ wife, told Windermere police that she dragged the injured golfer from his Cadillac Escalade about 2:25 a.m. Nov. 27 with the help of a golf club.

As the “witness” was the person who dragged Woods out of the Escalade, Woods’ wife was probably the person who told police he had been drinking.

More importantly, it was revealed that attending FHP officer Joshua Evans was denied a request to have Woods take a blood test after the accident.

Assistant State Attorney Steve Foster, who heads the state attorney’s intake division, blocked the request. Read more…

Neighbors Didn’t See Nordegren ‘Damage’ Woods

The ORLANDO SENTINEL reports two attorneys for the neighbors of Tiger Woods who called 911 after the golfer’s car accident said today that Woods’ wife Elin Nordegren was trying to help the golfer, not injure him.

“He was laying in the road. Mrs. Woods was beside him trying to help him,” Sharp said. “He couldn’t get up. Whether he was conscious, unconscious, I don’t know. She (Nordegren) was trying to help him. She wasn’t trying to do further damage.”

While Woods was completely out of it, and Nordegren later furnished attending EMTs with two prescription pill bottles, the the Adames family “saw no indication that Woods and wife Elin Nordegren were fighting or that drugs or alcohol was involved.” Read more…

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.Read more…

Report: Warrant Sought For Tiger’s Med Records

TMZ.com reports early Monday morning that the Florida Highway patrol is seeking the medical records of Tiger Woods from the hospital where he received treatment immediately after his Thursday night crash. The FHP reportedly wants to determine if Woods’ injuries are consistent with a car accident. If they are not, TMZ reports Woods’ wife Elin Nordegren could potentially be charged with domestic abuse.

TMZ Crime Scene Photo Of Tiger Woods Crash - Golf Cart Is Present

(TMZ: No golf court in crash scene photos. WFTV pic reveal golf cart)

TMZ reports that Nordegren’s supposed contradictory statement about a golf cart she used that night during the incident could provide the evidence the FHP needs to obtain a warrant. The website notes that in its crash scene photos, there’s no golf cart present: “TMZ has reviewed 21 photos from the scene — no sign of any golf cart.”But in a WFTV.com crash scene photo (above), there is a golf cart.

TMZ called the lack of a golf cart at the scene, “One big piece of evidence showing probable cause” and cited the evidence first in what “sources” told the website shows probable cause - which would be needed to obtain a search warrant.TMZ only cites “sources” in the warrant-golf cart story. In the past, TMZ has cited “law enforcement sources”.

It remains to be seen if TMZ’s report about the FHP requesting a search warrant is true. If it is, the FHP might want to log onto WFTV.com.

UPDATE (6:51am PT): After my post, TMZ.com has since added the same photo I cited above and inserted this sentence: “TMZ has reviewed 21 photos from the scene — no sign of any golf cart. But we just found another photo from the scene, where you can see a golf cart in the foreground.

There’s one other piece of supposed evidence mentioned by the site that reportedly could show probable cause in obtaining a warrant. Read more…

Nike Gives Tiger Cover To Blow Off Media, Public

Tiger Woods exercised his power as a celebrity Sunday by embarrassing the Florida Highway Patrol for the third straight day - in refusing an interview request. Woods’ agent now says his client is refusing to meet with the authorities at all.

There’s a possibility that the FHP will indeed back off and issue Woods some sort of traffic citation, even if it suspects a domestic disturbance between Woods and wife Elin Nordegren precipitated the “accident”. But while the public may soon forget that debacle thanks to Woods’ non-cooperation, the story of his alleged affair is just getting started.

The woman accused of a tryst with Woods, Rachel Uchitel, is claiming the National Enquirer report is false and has indicated she may sue the mag for defamation. Today she flew to Los Angeles to meet with high profile attorney Gloria Allred. If Uchitel formally enlists the services of Allred, you can bet she’ll soon turn up on Larry King and every other prominent electronic media outlet.

(’Tell Octomom to hold my calls, Larry King here we come!’)

Though Uchitel is meeting with Allred under the pretense of denying the Enquirer’s charges, the fact that she’ll be all over the media indefinitely will keep the alleged affair in the public eye, further damaging Woods’ credibility. That is unless Woods himself forcefully denies the story. Read more…
