Here are some new, previously unseen photos of Rachel Uchitel (photos), the woman who allegedly had an extramarital affair with Tiger Woods.
Today we found out that Woods and wife Elin Nordegren are refusing a police request for an interview until tomorrow.
Woods may be deliberately delaying talking to the police to avoid them seeing his injuries. If they are not consistent with his car crash, his wife could be charged with assaulting him. But if Woods does not speak to police before the 911 call is released tomorrow, he may not be able to spin how the call comes off to the public.
I still think Woods will show up to his golf tournament next week, to keep up appearances and satisfy the concerns of his sponsors. Hundreds of millions of dollars hang in the balance for the golfer, who makes his living on his trustworthy image.
TMZ has previously reported that Nordegren attacked Woods, scratching his face then smashing Woods’ SUV with a golf club. TMZ followed that with news that Nordegren then changed her story about the incident to police.
The Florida Highway Patrol has stated it will not investigate the incident as a domestic disturbance - only as a vehicle crash scene. But if Woods’ injuries are inconsistent with what Nordegren told police, that apparently could change.
Still, one wonders why the FHP chose to delay reporting any details about the incident for 12 hours - after Woods had already been released from the hospital.
In this situation, it appears the tail may be wagging the dog. That is, TMZ’s reporting is forcing the police to acknowledge the bogus car accident story and possibly pursue charges against Nordegren. Without TMZ, I’m not so sure that would be happening.
OR, Nordegren could been telling the truth and TMZ is completely wrong. What do you think?
