The infamous oak tree that Tiger Woods drove into that fateful night has met a fate similar to that of his golf career. It's gone down hard.

It was Thanksgiving night in November 2009 when Woods - hopped up on painkillers and reportedly fleeing Elin Nordegren - hopped in his Escalade and plowed into the tree, which sat in his neighbor's yard.

Well, new neighbors moved in recently and tore the thing down.

The construction company that did the work on the property said the tree was in terrible shape ever since the crash. The new peeps decided to get rid of it in spite of (or perhaps because of) its status as a memento of Tiger's affair with Rachel Uchitel.

A new tree will be planted soon, according to TMZ.

For now, though, there's just a portable John sitting there, allowing workmen to relieve themselves on the very spot where Tiger Woods' career went down the toilet.

Downright poetic.

In a new interview with Univision, former boxer Oscar De La Hoya has opened up about the depth of his personal issues, which culminated this spring in a trip to rehab.

"Rock bottom was recently," De La Hoya said, according to an English-language transcript provided by the network. "Within couple of years, just thinking if my life was even worth it. I don't have the strength, I don't have the courage to take my own life but I was thinking about it."

De La Hoya says he's been sober for three months and admits, yes, he was unfaithful to his wife. However: "We are obviously not talking a Tiger Woods here."

Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton has been arrested on murder charges.

The fugitive from justice was trying to board an airplane in Orange County, Calif. Crittenton had checked in for a flight to Atlanta Monday night, where his lawyer said he was going to surrender in the murder case against him.

He was taken into custody and booked at an L.A. police station.

A wanted man by the FBI, he was booked on suspicion of being a fugitive from justice, a bureau source has confirmed to the Washington Post.

Javaris, who played for the Washington Wizards and was the other player involved in the Gilbert Arenas gun incident, allegedly killed Julian Jones.

Cops believe Crittenton was not aiming at Jones but rather someone else in the area who may have robbed the former basketball player in April.

Already facing a host of felony embezzlement charges, former baseball star Lenny Dykstra has now been charged with indecent exposure, as well.

The allegation? Whipping out his junk for women he met on Craigslist.

According to officials, Len went to Craigslist posting ads for a personal assistant or housekeeping service, then pulled the ol' dong-bait-and-switch.

Lenny's nickname was "Nails." Insert bad joke here.

When the women arrived, Dykstra would "inform the women that the job also required them to give a massage and would expose himself to them."

Pretty standard procedure, isn't it? Did they not read the ad?

Dykstra, who's already in custody on federal and state charges for auto theft, identity theft, embezzlement from himself (our favorite) filing false statements, possession of cocaine and Ecstasy, and so on, could face even more jail time if convicted.

Sounds like someone needs a wang and a prayer.

Jantel Lavender, a rookie on the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks, has been accused of making like Charlie Sheen.

Based on documents filed with the L.A. County Superior Court this week, the fifth overall draft pick's ex-boyfriend (Adam Ashley) has been granted a restraining order against Lavender following a July 5 incident in which he alleges she threatened him with a knife.

Lavender is also accused of kneeing her ex so hard in the crotch that his private parts were "throbbing from the pain," while also slamming his head into a wall and choking him.

The 6'4" forward must stay at least 100 yards away from Ashley, and has filed a restraining order of her own in response, saying Adam once tried to punch her. A court date has been set for August 30.

Lavender attended Ohio State and averages 7 points per game for the Sparks. She's shooting 51% from the field.

Gia Allemand (Bachelor Pad) and Ryan Anderson (Orlando Magic) are dating! Talk about a slam dunk, or a better basketball/love metaphor!

The 27-year-old model said that "fate stepped in" when she was introduced to Ryan while doing a photo shoot in The Bahamas in February.

"We ended up hanging out every minute I was able to when I wasn't working," says Allemand, who was soon offered a job in The Bahamas.

That required her relocation to Florida - where Anderson's pro team happens to be - in order to "be flown to the Bahamas every weekend."

Allemand, who recently designed a line a bathing suits for The G Stop, says she and the 23-year-old Anderson have been going strong.

"Not only was it love at first sight but it seemed like a touch of destiny. We now both live in Orlando and couldn't be happier," Allemand says.

"I think I may have finally found the one!"

Eat it, Jake Pavelka and Wes Hayden.

Looks like Jay Cutler realizes he dropped the ball.

The Chicago Bears QB reunited with ex-fiancee (and rumored Dancing With the Stars contestant Kristin Cavallari) in Chicago, and he wants her back, reports say. Really. Nameless sources say “He’s been trying to get her back."

But is that true? And will he succeed if so?

"All of the rumors were that Jay dumped her but that was totally false and she knew something wasn’t right,” an insider says. “He totally has a rep for being blah and a douche. But I haven’t heard about him going out at all lately.”

Jay and Kristin were spotted out together in Chicago over the weekend, “walking in the West Loop, where he lives,” the tabloid insider adds.

“Maybe he really did change and realized what he lost?” a pal of the former couple asks. “I wouldn’t be surprised if they give it another go.”

Kristin and Jay abruptly called off their engagement last month, amid reports that the football star was the one who called things off.

After the 24-year-old did a photo shoot in her wedding dress, no less. If they do get back together, that will be a tough turn of events to forget.

Women's Super Welterweight Boxing Champ Christy Martin, is putting her dukes up outside the ring - against the California State Athletic Commission.

Claiming the organization is sexist and she lost what would have been her 50th win lifetime as a result, Christy and Gloria Allred are taking swift action.

Christy fought Dakota Stone last June at the Staples Center in L.A., and was ahead in points with 51 seconds left when the referee stopped the fight.

Stone was awarded the win, as the ref felt Christy couldn't continue because her hand was injured. Christy and Gloria certainly don't see it that way.

Gloria claims all Christy did was "momentarily wince," and she wanted to continue, and halting the bout was "an unfair and sexist double standard."

In other words, Allred is saying that the referee would never have stopped a similar fight under the same circumstances if the boxers were male.

She may not have a terrible point there.

Last fall, Christy's then-husband allegedly tried to stab, shoot her and pistol-whip her to death. Now a minor hand injury - in boxing - ends a fight?
