Tiger Woods keeps wife out of jail
Tiger Woods is more loyal than he’s given credit for after being exposed for cheating on his wife and trying to cover it up.
While tabloids and news media chastise him for his disloyalty, he is absorbing all of the scrutiny and protecting Elin Nordegren, the mother of their 2-year-old daughter and 9-month-old son by turning down three requests to talk to the police about the post-Thanksgiving Day incident that resulted in his $164 reckless driving ticket for backing into a fire hydrant and a tree outside his Orlando area mansion.
If he talks to the police, his wife likely will go to jail because Florida’s state law requires a mandatory arrest in a domestic violence dispute even if neither party presses charges.
By refusing to cooperate with police, Tiger is keeping mum that his wife actually roughed him up during a feud, likely caused by The National Enquirer’s story that the world’s No. 1 golfer is having an affair. His wife chased him out of the house with a golf club that she probably used to cause the bruises on his face. To escape his wife’s wrath, Tiger anxiously backpedaled his Cadillac Escalade out of the driveway and crashed. Elin pulled him out.
When police arrived, Tiger commended his wife for acting courageously and rescuing him.
Now, Tiger is returning the favor by keeping Elin out of jail, and he has talked to some friends about rewarding her by buying her a multi-millionaire dollar ring just as Kobe Bryant did when he publicly confessed to cheating on his wife amid rape allegations in 2003.
But by keeping his wife out of jail, the billionaire golfer proved his loyalty more than a ring could. After all, his wedding ring didnâ€™t keep him from cheating.
