I think you're right but I don't think they are going to want to make a federal case out of an accident like this. It's going to look like they are going after him because he's a celebrity. He'll get an army of lawyers in there and they tie that little police department up in knots.
I agree that we aren't entitled to know anything about this and if John Daly had done the same thing it wouldn't have been news since he does stuff like this all the time. When someone like Tiger does this, it's news because he's seen to be perfect. Good father, good husband, he never says or does anything controversial off the golf course. When something like this happens on the heels of an allegation that he may have a girlfriend, it's news.
What I think will be interesting is the way the news organizations will handle this. If they don't treat him with kid gloves, they could risk their relationship with him.
