Busted! ESPN under fire for photoshopping the DUI mugshot of Tiger Woods

From Wiki

Tiger Woods was arrested in Jupiter Florida yesterday morning under suspicion of driving under the influence.

Mr. Woods was apprehended at 3am in the morning.

Tiger has cited prescription medication as the cause of this unfortunate situation, he maintains he was not under the influence of alcohol.

Inquiring minds are hoping that the police will clarify why Woods was pulled over, and if he was under the influence of pills not booze.

The details of the arrest are still a mystery because the police report has not been released yet, which makes sense due to the extraordinary public profile of Tiger Woods.

If it was anyone else, we would know all the details of this problem Tiger had, but it was to be expected that Tiger that would be protected in the event that he got pinched.

Tiger is an institution to many people, fans, sponsors, and most of all, the networks.

This story is being treated as a “stunning ” fall from grace, when in reality he might have just taken pills he didn’t fully understand, he is after all recovering from having back surgery.

The blowback to the story was overstated, but that should clue people in to how important Tiger Woods is considered to be.

Tiger has generated billions of dollars for the television networks, despite his rancid infidelity in his marriage, Tiger found a way to move past it, and maintain his marketability.

Which came into play as news of his arrest spread like wildfire.

ESPN has some questions to answer this morning.

It appears they photoshopped the mug shot that was blasted to the planet yesterday.

See if you can see the difference.

In one photo, Tiger’s hair is all over the place, he looks like a man that was just arrested for driving under the influence.

But the image that ESPN broadcasted looks very different, much better in fact.

From Complex

We at Tastie Fish understand that ESPN has a wonderful relationship with Tiger Woods, but making aesthetic changes to his mug shot is not a service they would extend to athletes from the NBA or the NFL.

No way possible.

It’s bit a irresponsible to play public relations director when your supposed to be reporting the news.

Update: 11:50am

The arrest report has been released.

Tiger Woods was asleep at the wheel when officers found him.

From CNN

Woods was stopped by Jupiter, Florida, police early Monday on the side of the road, with his 2015 Mercedes-Benz running, its brake lights illuminated and right turn signal flashing, according to the arrest report released Tuesday. He was by himself and wearing his seat belt.
