Tiger Woods Blames DUI On 'Prescribed Medications'

Disgraced golfer Tiger Woods is blaming his recent DUI arrest on prescription medications, according to a statement obtained by People magazine.

"I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions. I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved," the 41-year-old golfer said. "What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn't realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.

"I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself too. I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again," Woods continued. "I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Department and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office for their professionalism."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Woods was arrested in the early morning on May 29, 2017, in Jupiter, Fla., after reportedly having an "unlawful blood alcohol level" in his system. TMZ later reported that Woods was seen "driving erratically, all over the road" and refused to take a breathalyzer test, resulting in an automatic arrest.
