Report: Police seek search warrant in Tiger Woods accident


The Florida Highway Patrol is seeking a search warrant for hospital records that would document the treatment Tiger Woods received after an auto accident early Friday morning, is reporting.

The police want to determine if the injuries Woods had, including facial cuts, came from an auto accident or domestic violence.

TMZ is also reporting that the search warrant is in response to Woods' postponement, his third, Sunday of a meeting scheduled with police. This time, the meeting was not rescheduled.

Woods is scheduled to compete at his Chevron World Challenge, which starts Thursday in Thousand Oaks.

The accident came just days after the National Enquirer published a story alleging that Woods had been seeing another woman. The woman, Rachel Uchitel, denied having an affair with Woods when contacted by the Associated Press.
