ORLANDO, Fla. — The Florida Highway Patrol was flooded with e-mails criticizing their handling of the investigation of the crash involving golfer Tiger Woods that led to him admitting to extramarital affairs.

A review by the Orlando Sentinel found that the highway patrol and its umbrella agency, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, got more than 400 e-mails in the days after the November crash outside Woods' home near Orlando.

Many of the e-mails accused the highway patrol of doing shoddy work and of treating Woods more like a celebrity than a suspect. A small percentage of e-mails praised the highway patrol's work.

Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Department press secretary Ann Howard says the highway patrol handled the investigation professionally.
