2009: Golfer Tiger Woods crashes his SUV outside his Florida mansion, sparking widespread attention to reports of marital infidelity. Woods was treated for minor facial lacerations and received a ticket for careless driving. Following intense media speculation about the accident, Woods would release a statement on his website taking sole responsibility for the accident, calling it a "private matter" and crediting his wife, Elin Nordegren, for helping him from the car. On Dec. 2, following the release by US Weekly of a voicemail message allegedly left by Woods for a mistress, he released another statement in which he admitted "transgressions." Woods and Nordegren would divorce on Aug. 23, 2010.
