Things don’t look too bright for Tiger Woods. The famous golfer has been arrested this week for DUI in Florida. The star was taken into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence and several reports claimed that he had an unlawful level of alcohol in his blood. Initially it has been claimed that he was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail.
As imagined, the star did not spend too much time in jail, but was released from custody in a matter of a few hours with no bond. Soon after being released from jail, Tiger Woods released an official statement to apologize and acknowledge the severity of his actions. However, he also said that he did not drink before getting behind the wheel, but actually it was all caused by a reaction to some prescribed medications he took before his arrest.
“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions,” the official statement said. “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,” it went on to add. However, Woods went on to say that he will make sure that this will not happen again.
“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,” he said. The statement also praised the police officers who handled his case for their professionalism. Woods claimed that he fully cooperated with the authorities.
Tiger Woods’ personal life caused a lot of headlines a few years ago, when it had been revealed that he cheated on his wife with multiple women during their marriage. Woods and Elin Nordegren ended their marriage in 2010.
