|Attorney: Woods' Wife Asked Neighbors to Call 911
|WINDERMERE, Fla. (AP) -- An attorney for the neighbors who dialed 911 after Tiger Woods' car crash last week says they saw no indication the golfer was beaten or driving under the influence.
Attorney Bill Sharpe said Tuesday that Linda Adams and her adult sons Jarius and Jerome Adams went outside their Orlando-area home after hearing the crash.
They found Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, upset about her husband's injuries and she asked them to call 911. Sharpe says Woods appeared woozy and had scratches on his face.
Woods withdrew Monday from his own golf tournament, citing injuries from the crash Friday morning, when his SUV hit a fire hydrant and a tree.
The Adamses told Sharpe that Woods' wife was not holding a golf club. She told investigators she used a club to break a window to pull Woods from the SUV.
