Another icon falls

It was pretty obvious from the get-go that Tiger Woods and his wife had a little dustup that resulted in her breaking the window of their Cadillac SUV with one of his golf clubs and him ramming the vehicle into a fire hydrant and a tree. As usual it was the attempted cover-up that made their private argument more interesting than it probably deserved to be. Whether the dispute was over his Dubai investment losses or an alleged affair with another woman.

But the cover-up that’s continuing, where the world’s No. 1 golfer and his former-model wife keep ducking the Florida Highway Patrol’s investigation interviews, is making the whole thing uglier than it needs to be. True, domestic calls seldom result in arrests and, sure, wealth has its privileges, but stiffing the cops is not supposed to be one of them. Hard to have much respect for people who play these games. Not that I would expect them to be punished. As they are doing their best to underscore for the rest of us, the law is for the little people.

UPDATE: Late Sunday, TW was still refusing to talk to the FHP. They, apparently, are just shuffling their flat feet. Probably standing, smoky-bear hat in hand, at the jefe’s closed front door. Underscoring the double-standard of American justice. Then, on Monday, the FHP finally was getting around to seeking a search warrant, accroding to TMZ.

  1. Just remember, if you or I did this , no one would care. I guess it comes with the turf. Joe

  2. If you or I did this, i.e. obstructed the cops in the performance of their duty, we’d be arrested.
