Tiger Woods: From Winner to Wiener
Pro golfer and serial cheater Tiger Woods is back in the headlines over a wiener, only this time it wasn't his. The world's greatest golfer was playing his first tournament since August when he was assaulted by a flying frankfurter. During the Frys.com Open on Sunday, an unruly fan called the famous athlete's name and then tossed the wienie in Woods' direction. Woods recalls the incident, "Some guy just came running on the green, and he had a hot dog, and evidently ... I don't know how he tried to throw it, but I was kind of focusing on my putt when he started yelling. Next thing I know, he laid on the ground, and looked like he wanted to be arrested because he ... put his hands behind his back and turned his head." Security immediately took down the unnamed hot dog bandit, and the 31-year-old was subsequently arrested for disturbing the peace. Although nobody was injured by the flying frank, police are unsure why the assailant had a beef with Woods. Sgt. Jose Cardoza told the San Francisco Gate that the man did cooperate with the police, "He was very cooperative. They said, 'Why did you do this?' He just shook his head in guilt or remorse. He didn't give a reason why he did it." The guy also maintained that he wasn't tossing the dog in Woods' direction but instead up in the air. Between the hot dog and placing 30th in his final PGA tour event of the year, Woods likely didn't have much of an appetite.
