The attorney for Tiger Woods Tuesday heralded Florida authorities' decision not to further investigate the golf star's Thanksgiving night car accident - telling Newsday, "It's over."

"We're pleased with the outcome," Mark NeJame, of Orlando, said. "There is no further comment other than: It's over."

The Florida Highway Patrol announced Tuesday that it had concluded its investigation into the accident, and would not pursue criminal charges.

They did issue the golf phenom a citation for careless driving. NeJame said someone paid the $164 fine on Woods' behalf at the Orange County Clerk's office and Woods will get four points on his driver's license.

"The investigation has determined that Mr. Woods is at fault in the crash," Florida Highway Patrol Major Cindy Williams said at a news conference. "Any person operating a vehicle upon the streets or highways in the state is required by law to drive in a careful or prudent manner so as not to endanger the life, limb or property of any person."

Williams said police and prosecutors determined there was not enough evidence to support issuing a subpoena for Woods' medical information stemming from the accident, including any blood evidence.

"Despite the celebrity status of Mr. Woods, the Florida Highway Patrol has completed its investigation in the same professional manner that it strives to complete each traffic crash investigation," Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Montes said.

Woods, 33, crashed his 2009 Cadillac Escalade into a fire hydrant and a tree after 2 a.m. Friday outside his home in the gated community of Isleworth in Windermere, Fla.

Williams said Tuesday that "there are no claims of domestic violence by any individual."

NeJame said that the patrol's conclusion "dovetails right into" the account of Woods' neighbors, Jerome and Linda Adams, who called 911 after the accident and saw Woods moments after the crash.

At a news conference Tuesday, the Adams' attorney, Bill Sharpe, said Woods' injuries appeared "consistent with a car wreck and inconsistent with him being beat up" by his wife, Elin Nordegren. Sharpe also said that Nordegren asked the couple to call 911, that she appeared distraught over her husband's accident, and tried to console him.

NeJame said it was apparent that there was nothing more to the car crash despite "the TMZ -- that everyone's been following."

Regarding the media blitz that followed the crash, NeJame said he could "give a lot of opinions on that in light of our society," but chose instead not to comment further.
