Tiger Woods: Police deny ‘preferential treatment’ but reveal they didn’t check his phone or toxicity at scene

Police have denied that they gave preferential treatment to Tiger Woods after his car crash in February, but also revealed that they didn’t check his phone or toxicity levels at the scene of the crash.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva pushed back on the notion that Mr Woods was treated differently because if his stature as a famous golf player, telling reporters during a press conference: “The decision not to issue a citation would be the same thing for anyone in this room.

“The inference that he’s somehow special is false.”

Mr Woods was not charged with reckless driving despite the vehicles data recorder showing him driving between 84 and 87 mph in an area with a 45 mph speed limit.

Sheriff Villanueva made clear that Mr Woods showed no signs of having consumed alcohol or used drugs.
