Woods not above the law, he only thinks he is

November 29, 2009 - Per Peterson
Does Tiger Woods seriously think he’s bigger than the law. Woods, who is recovering from a car crash last week, canceled another meeting with Florida state troopers over the weekend. The best golfer in the world did everyone the honor of posting a statement on his Web site, saying the accident was his fault, but he’s not answering any questions about the crash that sent him to the hospital. Police first tried to interview Woods on Friday, the Associated Press has reported, only for his wife to ask if they could return the next day because he was sleeping. As they headed to Woods’ $2.4 million house inside the gates of Isleworth on Saturday afternoon, FHP dispatch put through a phone call to troopers from Woods’ agent, informing them that Woods and his wife would be unavailable to talk until Sunday. Wait. Since when can we tell state troopers to take a hike? I don’t care if he can reach the green from 400 yards out from behind an oak tree, he should not be allowed to speak to law enforcement at his leisure; it’s a joke. Troopers show up at your pad, you talk to them. And since when does law enforcement say, “OK, we’ll wait until you’re ready.” Then Tiger turns around and says: ‘‘Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible.” Well, clear it up then, Tiger. Man-up and face the music — with the troopers and your fans. Even though he’s not required by law to give a statement, you would think law enforcement would be pushing the issue a little harder than they are.
