Looks like Tiger Woods is off the hook.
In a news conferenece held Tuesday afternoon, the Florida Highway Patrol said they will not pursue criminal charges against Woods, but will cite him for careless driving.
“FHP has determined that Mr. Woods is at fault in the crash, but will not be pursuing criminal charges nor is there testimony or other evidence to support charges of any kind,” a Florida Highway Patrol spokesman said, adding the most Woods will potentially have to pay for his citation is a whopping $164.
It’s the latest twist in a story that’s been steeped in mystery since early Friday morning when Woods crashed his car into a tree near his home in Florida.
The golf champ refused to speak with authorities about the details of the accident, instead choosing to release a vague statement to the press.
Adding fuel to the fire are reports that Woods was having several affairs with women, which may have prompted him to leave the house in a huff in the early hours of Friday morning.
