Tiger Woods had THC, Vicodin, Hydromorphone, Xanax, and Ambien in his system when he was arrested in May for driving under the influence, a new toxicology report released Tuesday states.
Woods told officers that he was asleep at the wheel because he had a bad reaction from Xanax and Vicodin, the two medications prescribed to him for his recent back surgery.
Woods pleaded guilty last week to his reckless driving charge and agreed to enter a diversion program for first time DUI offenders. Upon completion of the program, his record will be cleared, reports Fox News.
Woods released the following statement on Monday.
“As I previously said, I received professional help to manage my medications. Recently, I had been trying on my own to treat my back pain and a sleep disorder, including insomnia, but I realize now it was a mistake to do this without medical assistance. I am continuing to work with my doctors, and they feel I’ve made significant progress. I remain grateful for the amazing support that I continue to receive and for the family and friends that are assisting me.”
A month after the arrest, Woods checked into a facility in order to get professional help for his reliance on painkillers. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that Tiger has 100-1 odds to win the 2018 Masters if he decides to play.
