In case you have not heard by now, Tiger Woods was arrested over Memorial Day Weekend 2017 for DUI — at 3 a.m. on Monday morning in Jupiter Island, FL. He was booked in and released from Palm Beach County Jail and explained after the fact that his medicines played a big part in the incident.
“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly,” he said in a statement. "I would like to apologize with all of my heart to my family, friends, and the fans. I expect more from myself too."
