Tiger Woods Pleads Guilty To Reckless Driving
So, golf Icon, Tiger Woods got himself into trouble after he did some reckless driving.
On Friday, Woods pleaded guilty in a Florida court to driving under the influence charge.
Police found the golf champion asleep in his Mercedes-Benz beside the road last May.
Under the plea agreement reached in Palm Beach County, north of Miami, Woods will not serve jail time unless he commits major violations of his probation.
The deal requires Woods, winner of 14 major golf championships, to spend one year on probation, pay a $250 fine, perform 50 hours' community service, and complete "DUI (driving under the influence) school", among other conditions, Dave Aronberg, the state attorney for Palm Beach County, told AFP.
"He was calm" while entering the plea, Aronberg said.
41-year-old Woods had 5 drugs in his system, including the opioid painkiller hydrocodone, when he was arrested on May 29 in Jupiter, Florida, according to a toxicology report police released at the time.
They arrested him on suspicion of driving under the influence.
The toxicology report also showed the presence of the powerful painkiller hydromorphone; anxiety drug alprazolam (also known as Xanax); sleep drug zolpidem (also known as Ambien) and THC, a chemical component of marijuana.
But Woods told officers he was taking Vicodin and Xanax to deal with pain from back surgery, which he underwent in April for the fourth time.
