Tiger Woods’ Half-Brother Arrested for “Joke” Bomb Threat on Government Building

News

The AP is reporting that Tiger Woods’ 58-year-old half-brother, Earl Dennison Woods Jr., called in a bomb threat Thursday morning to his place of employ, the Department of Economic Security in Phoenix. Apparently, it was in pursuit of some yuks:

More than 100 people were evacuated from the building before Woods came forward and told police the phone call was meant as a joke and he didn’t expect his co-workers to take it seriously.

In early 2012, ESPN‘s Rick Reilly wrote about the seemingly frosty relationship between Earl Jr. and Tiger. One imagines this isn’t going to help warm things up.

Anything vaguely negative about Tiger is the work of racist haters...

Why is this the #1 news story at the top of the list at both SI and Golf.com?


This has nothing to do with sports.

At most, it's human-interest "relative of a celebrity" stuff:  a half-brother old enough to be his father that Tiger Woods has no contact with does something stupid...and it's the #1 story on 2 major sports websites?


Journalism is not only dead, it enthuses in its own self-destruction.

@muserConsidering Tiger has never had a single black person in his "entourage" or a single black girlfriend or a single black friend, you have to wonder who the racist is.

@PatrickBatemanVP Good job parents. Blaming the parents is something you can do when someone is a child, tennager or young adult. When they are closer to getting Medicare and Social Security than to being in high school they are their own responsibility.
