LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tiger Woods may want to skip this week’s episode of “Law & Order: Los Angeles.”

The plot on Wednesday’s show includes a philandering golf star and his club-wielding wife. When police arrive, the bleeding athlete says his spouse was merely attempting to rescue him – in this case, from their swimming pool rather than a wrecked car.

After Woods’ November 2009 car crash, he acknowledged a string of infidelities and his marriage to Elin Nordegren unraveled. The NBC crime drama goes in a very different direction, with detectives investigating the murder of a female golf pro.

The “Law & Order” franchise is known for its ripped-from-the-headlines approach, but a series spokeswoman called the episode strictly fiction. “Law & Order: Los Angeles,” with Skeet Ulrich, Corey Stoll and Terrence Howard, airs 10 p.m. EST Wednesday on NBC.
