Tiger Woods POLICE MEETING: Florida Highway Patrol Saw 'Fat Lip'

WESH Orlando reports that the Florida Highway Patrol met Tiger Woods at an undisclosed location three days after his post-Thanksgiving car crash. According to FHP spokeswoman Kim Montes, Woods had "a fat lip" -- but no other facial injuries. The article says there was "no reason to believe he was the victim of domestic violence."

This report directly refutes a widely circulated (and discredited) email that claimed Woods flew to Arizona as soon as he was released from the hospital to undergo plastic surgery. It is less clear whether the Highway Patrol's disclosure repudiates a previous report that said Woods' wife Elin Nordegren (PHOTOS) cracked Tiger's tooth after she threw a cell phone at him.

The WESH report is well timed, as today is Tiger Woods' birthday.
