he wasn't THAT rich when he moved there. i believe Shaq lives in the same development. it's about time Tiger buys his own island and moves there

You and I, well, we're getting tested for alcohol. But "fading in and out of consciousness" gives the police a reason to NOT test TW. Preferential treatment.

Seems like they are protecting the wife from assault charges.

There is no scenario I can envision where a car hits a hydrant hard enough to damage the car so that it traps the driver such that the windows need smashed in to get him out, yet the airbags don't deploy.

??? Really? You must not have much experience with airbag sensors. I was personally in a 4 car pile up where my car was near totalled and my airbag never deployed. I know several people who were in major accidents where the airbags never deployed. It's not a sure thing.

He bought property on Jupiter Island (also in Fla) a few years ago and proceeded to tear it down, so perhaps he is planning on moving there eventually.

I've read he also owns property in California, Wyoming and Sweden. Possibly New York and Dubai too.

In 2001, I hit a 10-point buck dead square with my old Chevy Blazer, on the interstate, at 70 mph. $8500 damage. Airbags never deployed.

I was the passenger in a pretty bad (car was totalled) collision with a tree when I was younger and the airbags never deployed.

The key is to get T-boned. Then the airbags will deploy and make you wet your pants.

Yeah, and that property is incredible. Last time I drove by it looked like the new house was close to being finished, so maybe he will be moving there soon....possibly without Elin.
