Tiger was released and the injuries were not serious. From what they say now...just some lacerations around hte mouth and on his lips. But where in the heck was he going at just before 2:25 am???? Did they need some milk???
But...he had been in Australia and China for a while...maybe he still had some trouble getting use to the time change and was just going to an all night "driving range?" Is there a Pure Platinum near his house...hmmmm???
I think there might be more to this. Did the wife break the window before or after the accident? Did she hit the car causing the accident. Can you say Richard Pryor! Where is he going at that hour? There are rumors of infidelity....
