Tiger Woods Had Five Drugs In System When Arrested – Toxicology Report

The former world number one golfer was arrested in May on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) but denied taking alcohol, rather attributing his dizziness to the prescribed medications he took.

A toxicology report has however revealed that Tiger Woods had five different drugs in his system when he was arrested in May for DUI. A urine test revealed a mixture of strong painkillers, sleep and anxiety drugs and THC, which is a chemical component of marijuana.

Tiger Woods pleaded not guilty to the DUI charge last week said he sought for professional help after his his arrest.

“As I previously said, I received professional help to manage my medications,” said Woods on Monday.

“Recently, I had been trying on my own to treat my back pain and a sleep disorder, including insomnia, but I realise now it was a mistake to do this without medical assistance.”

Woods, who is recovering from a fourth back operation, is now expected to admit a lesser charge of reckless driving and enter a 12-month probation programme.
