Attorney for neighbor who called 911 to talk

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

WINDERMERE, Fla. – The neighbor believed to have called 911 after Tiger Woods’ car crash last week is sending a lawyer out to talk with the media about what he saw.

Attorney Bill Sharpe is representing the family of Linda Adams, including her son Jarius, who is believed to be the 911 caller. They are neighbors of Tiger Woods in a luxury gated community near Orlando.

Sharpe said the family wants its privacy respected. The attorney said his partner will answer any media questions Tuesday morning at their law office in Orlando.

Woods withdrew Monday from his own golf tournament, citing injuries from the crash in the wee hours of the morning last Friday, when his SUV hit a fire hydrant and a tree.
