Tiger says he wants the public to know that 'alcohol was not involved'

Tiger Woods has blamed an “unexpected reaction” to prescription medicine for his arrest on a DUI (driving under the influence) 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.
“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions,” Woods said in a statement Monday evening (USA time). “I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.”

Woods apologised to his family, friends and fans and said, “I expect more from myself, too.”
“I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again,” he said.
Woods, whose 79 victories rank No. 2 on the PGA Tour’s career list, has not competed for nearly four months. He is out for the rest of the season while he recovers from fusion surgery on April 20 in Texas..
