A toxicology report has revealed that former world number one, Tiger Woods had five different drugs in his system when he was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI).
The 41-year-old American, who on Wednesday pleaded guilty to reckless driving, had Vicodin, Dilaudid, Xanax, Ambien and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in his system after the arrest last May.
The 14-time major winner has now agreed to enter into a 12-month probation program which will wipe off his records after completion.
In the early hours of May 29, Police officers found Tiger Woods asleep in his car and was arrested for DUI, an arrest that prompted the Golf star to seek professional medical help.
Woods told reporters 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.”
