ESPN doctors Tiger Woods mugshot

(WASHINGTON POST) — The arrest of Tiger Woods early Monday morning meant that there was a mug shot and, as mug shots go, this one was doozy.

The image, which showed the golfer looking tired and heavy-lidded, was quickly passed around social media and published across the Internet. It turned up looking quite different, though, on ESPN.

Woods’s hair, especially up top, was less unruly, less unkempt and shorter than it was in the mug shot. It appeared as if, perhaps, he had just visited a stylist and conspiracy theorists were quick to speculate that the network was sprucing up a man who used to be one of the most popular athletes in the world. In addition, the background for the small “Breaking News” image was changed to a TV-friendly blue from its cop-shop green. Frankly, it looked more like sloppy Photoshop cropping on a low-resolution image than anything else.
