As the saga of Tiger Woods’ car accident gets ever messier, now comes word that his wife, Elin Nordegren, told two sets of cops two different stories.
The official report from the Windermere, Fla., police says that Nordegren saw that her husband had crashed his Escalade early Friday, went back into the house and retrieved a golf club to break the back window and drag her husband from the SUV. ]]>TMZ says she gave the FHP a “very different story,” and that it didn’t have anything to do with going back inside to get a golf club. The site says its sources “will not allow us to be more specific.”
The top-secret FHP story sounds like it may jibe with reports that Woods’ face was scratched up before the accident, and that he and Nordegren were arguing about an affair the world’s No. 1 golfer was supposedly having (an affair the alleged mistress has denied). TMZ also notes that there was no blood on the steering wheel of Woods’ SUV, which would cast doubt on the idea that he was hurt after hitting a fire hydrant and a tree near his house.
Somewhere in between all this, we suspect, is the truth. And we suspect it’ll be a while before we get to it.
