Tiger Woods met with the Florida Highway Patrol three days after his November car crash, WESH-TV reports.

The alleged meeting -- at an undisclosed location in Orlando -- took place on Dec. 1, the same day authorities closed their investigation into the 34-year-old golfer's accident.

According to WESH-TV, a Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson said that two captains and a trooper met with Woods -- who was accompanied by his attorney -- so that he could sign a traffic ticket for careless driving and to check for any injuries that were not consistent with his accident.

Although initial reports claimed Woods suffered facial lacerations, the spokesperson said troopers noted only "a fat lip" and no other injuries. They said there was no reason to believe it was domestic abuse.

Woods was "polite," said "yes, sir," and made "no other small talk and signed the ticket," the spokesperson said.

When Florida Highway Patrol closed its investigation, the spokesperson said the patrol "is not pursuing criminal charges in this matter nor is there any testimony or other evidence to support any additional charges of any kind other than the charge of careless driving."
