Tiger Wood arrested for drunk while driving

Tiger Woods was arrested in Florida today on a charge of drunk driving, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

The 41-year-old golfer was arrested around 3am on Military Trail, south of Indian Creek Parkway in Jupiter.

Arrest information shows Woods, a resident of Jupiter Island, was booked into jail at 7:18am and then released on his own recognizance at 10:50am.

He faces a charge of driving with a blood alcohol level above Florida’s legal limit of .08.

This is the second time that Woods has been caught drinking and driving.

In November 2009, two days after the National Enquirer broke the story that Woods had been cheating on his then-wife Elin Nordegren with a New York City nightclub manager, Woods left home and crashed his Cadillac Escalade into a fire hydrant, a tree and several hedges. However, he wasn’t charged in that incident.

Following that incident, several other women came forward, saying they too had affairs with the professional golfer – tarnishing his previously pristine image.

A month later, he entered a 45-day therapy program and apologized for his actions, saying ‘I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to’.

Woods and Nordegren divorced a little less than a year later, in August 2010.

Since then, Woods’ career has been in a free fall as he’s failed to remain a major competitor and advertisers have stopped sponsoring him.

Atiku with German Ambassador

POLITICS – Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being undemocratic despite coming to power in 2015 through a democratic process.

Atiku stated this on Thursday when he visited Kogi State delegates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The presidential aspirant noted that Nigerians are presently suffering under the All Progressive Congress-led Federal Government.

He debunked the insinuation that he currently holds grudge against his former boss, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.

“I will continue to express my reservations on the willingness of President Buhari to hand over power. I have a simple and straight explanation for this. When Buhari took over power in 1983, they asked him of his transition to civil rule, then he responded, he doesn’t have.

“My stand is that one, he is not a democrat. Secondly, he is only using democracy to go back to power. If he loses election in 2019, he must hand over power” Atiku averred.

‘Buhari should be brought out to debate us, the media should force them out of hiding’ – Sowore

NYSC member battling for life after soldier's assault in Kaduna camp

A corp member is currently battling for survival after he was allegedly assaulted, yesterday, at the Kaduna State NYSC Orientation Camp (Black Gold Camp).

The corper, set to complete his service next month, had been appointed to the brigade band to train the current corps members. However, at the end of the parade, he excused himself and was planning to leave when a female soldier stopped him and said he couldn’t go.

He allegedly tried to explain to the soldier that he had to leave, as he is not bounded by the camp rules, but the soldier started harassing him. A male soldier later joined his colleague and kicked the corper, who fell and landed awkwardly on his head. The soldier was said to have pulled him up with his belt, raised him high and dropped him, making him faint immediately.

The victim was then rushed to the camp clinic, where preliminary assessment showed that he broke his neck in the process. He was later rushed out of the camp to a clinic and it’s being rumored that he is now between life and death.
