A neighbor who witnessed Tiger Woods‘ crash Friday gave in-depth details of what he saw in an interview with Florida Highway Patrol authorities — including the startling revelation that Woods was “snoring” in the wake of the occurrence.
The neighbor, Jarius Lavar Adams, who said he has lived near the golfer for 17 years, told police, “I saw Tiger laying on the ground. [His wife,] Elin, was talking to him. And from that point, I immediately ran back to the house, got the phone, dialed 911 and ran back out of the house again to see if she needed any assistance or whatever the case was going on.”
Adams said Woods’ mother was present, while Woods was “actually snoring,” as his wife Elin Nordegren, remained very quiet.
He said Woods, who was sprawled out “in the street,” had no blood on his shirt or hands, and that none rubbed off on him as he tried to hold Woods still in the wake of the incident.
“He was pretty much clean,” Adams said.
“Very in shock,” he said of Nordegren. “She wasn’t very verbal.”
Adams said Woods did not smell like alcohol, and that he was in close enough proximity to the golf legend that he would have smelled the booze had Woods been drinking.
Woods’ accident occurred the day after Thanksgiving after an argument with Nordegren on the heels of the National Enquirer‘s bombshell revelation Tiger had been having an affair with breathtaking NYC party girl Rachel Uchitel.
