|Woods Crash Hampers Weathy Neighborhood's Privacy
|WINDERMERE, Fla. (AP) -- The usual privacy of Tiger Woods' Florida neighborhood of multimillion-dollar mansions has been hard to maintain since the world's most famous athlete crashed his SUV.
The professional athletes, bold-faced celebrities and corporate moguls who call Isleworth home enjoy a platoon of private guards and an eight-foot-high security wall that ensure the 300-family community's privacy above all else.
But Woods' crash Friday outside his home near Orlando has turned the neighborhood into the epicenter of a media firestorm.
More than a dozen television trucks are camped outside the entrance to the gated community as almost 100 reporters, photographers and television crew members film residents' comings and goings.
