Tiger Woods Breaks Silence: 'I Have Let My Family Down'

Lawyer: Injuries Consistent With Car Crash

After a five-day investigation, the Florida Highway Patrol announced Tuesday Woods was issued a traffic citation for careless driving. His lawyer said Woods paid a $164 fine and lost four points on his license. He will not face criminal charges stemming from last week's car crash, investigators said.

"We are pleased with the outcome," said Tiger's attorney Mark NeJame. "It's over."

Tuesday the lawyer for the neighbor who called 911 late last week after Woods' car crash said that the golf star's injuries appeared to be the result of the accident and not a domestic dispute.

Bill Sharpe, the attorney for the family of Linda Adams and her son Jarius, who is believed to be the 911 caller, said that Woods' injuries were "consistent with a car accident" and "inconsistent with being beaten up."

"None of his injuries looked like he was beat up with a golf club," said Sharpe.

The Adams family said they "comforted Mrs. Woods," who looked "upset," said Sharpe, speaking from his Orlando, Fla., law office.

Tigers appeared "woozy" when the Adams first saw him and instructed the golfer not to move until help arrived, said Sharpe.

Sharpe added that none of the Adams reported seeing any evidence that suggested a domestic dispute and did not hear anything that would suggest otherwise. No evidence of drugs or alcohol were seen on the scene by family either, said Sharpe.

Adams is believed to have called authorities after Woods plowed his SUV into a fire hydrant and then a tree outside his Windermere, Fla., home early last Friday morning.

Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, reportedly used a golf club to smash a window of his SUV to get him out.

Sharpe said Tuesday that his clients did not see any golf clubs at the scene of the accident.
