Woods said he “did not know what was going on,” but at he police station, it’s noted that Woods took a knife from the woman (who was trying to defend herself) and turned it back on her. When police arrived on the scene, Woods had blood on his shirt and arms, along with a fresh cut on his right index finger.
After being arrested, Woods claims he was “role-playing” with the woman, fulfilling a “sexual fantasy” of hers.
