Tiger says meds led to DUI charge

Metro Canada (Vancouver) - - SPORTS -

Tiger Woods at­trib­uted an “un­ex­pected re­ac­tion” to pre­scrip­tion medicine for his ar­rest on a DUI charge that landed him in a Florida jail Mon­day for nearly four hours.

Woods, the 14-time ma­jor cham­pion who had back surgery five weeks ago, was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of DUI at about 3 a.m. Mon­day and taken to Palm Beach County jail. He was re­leased on his own re­cog­ni­zance.

Jupiter Po­lice spokes­woman Kristin Rightler said she did not have ad­di­tional de­tails about the cir­cum­stances lead­ing to Woods’ ar­rest, nor did she have any in­for­ma­tion about whether the ar­rest in­volved drugs or al­co­hol.
