Tiger Woods - Medical Records Demand?

The car accident involving Tiger Woods is an interesting case, pitting privacy rights against the power of the state. The police sought medical records of Mr. Woods, allegedly because they wanted to see if his injuries were consistent with those from an accident. Obviously, they believed someone, perhaps armed with one of Tiger's golf clubs, assaulted him. (My suspicion falls on Arnold Palmer who probably got beat by Tiger on a midnight outing by the pair.)
