We knew Tiger Woods was pretty spun when he was busted for DUI on May 29, but thanks to a toxicology report released Monday, we now know the list of Tiger’s drugs of choice.
And it’s a long list.
According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office report, which was obtained by ESPN, Woods had Vicodin, Dilaudid, Xanax, Ambien and THC in his system when cops found him asleep at the wheel of his 2015 Mercedes-Benz.
Last Wednesday, Woods pleaded guilty to reckless driving, and as part of his plea, his record will be expunged once he completes a diversion program.
Tiger probably should have stuck to smoking a little weed, even though he had prescriptions to some of those other drugs (it is not known whether he has a script for medical marijuana). Not only was he asleep when he was supposed to be driving, his Mercedes had two damaged rims and two flat tires, plus a scratched up rear bumper and a non-functioning taillight. Seems Tiger knocked around his Benz pretty good that night.
Based on his breathalyzer, he hadn’t had a drop to drink. He blew .000.
Here’s the video taken from the cop car’s dashcam. It’s sad but kind of hilarious. When the cop asks him if he understands the instructions for one of the roadside sobriety tests, for example, Tiger replies, “Not to sing the national anthem backwards.”
Not even close.
“As I previously said, I received professional help to manage my medications,” Woods said in a prepared statement Monday. “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.”
That Woods needs pain medication is certainly understandable – the guy has had four back surgeries since 2014. But, please man, be careful on the road.
Also, get back to the golf course. We miss you out there.
