Police Seek Search Warrant, Surveillance Camera Footage

After Tiger Woods and his wife Elin refused to speak with police for a third time on Sunday, the Florida Highway Patrol has shifted its focus from just walking up to Tiger's door and asking to speak with him to now trying to obtain a warrant, according to TMZ.

The FHP hopes to use a search warrant to gather medical records from the hospital where Tiger was treated to determine what caused his injuries -- the car crash or his wife.

One big piece of evidence showing probable cause ... sources tell us Tiger's wife, Elin Nordegren told FHP troopers she went looking for Tiger in a golf cart, came upon the accident and then used a golf club to break the window to gain entry. That's a very different story from what she first told Windemere cops shortly after the accident -- she never mentioned a golf cart. Nordegren told Windemere police she had walked out of her house, saw the crash, went back inside to get a golf club and returned to the vehicle.

Additionally, if Tiger was operating the vehicle while using prescription pain medication, that could be enough evidence for a DUI.

But wait, there's more! -- the police are also looking to obtain tapes from the security cameras that line the outside of Tiger's home.

TMZ has learned the home of Tiger and wife Elin Nordegren is fully loaded with security cameras and we're told at least one of the cameras show Tiger's exit from the house. We know the FHP wants the video.

As we first reported, the FHP wants a search warrant for Tiger's medical records. They also want the video -- the question, even if the FHP gets a warrant for the video ... what, if any, footage exists at this point?
