Five months after his arrest near his Florida home for driving under the influence, Tiger Woods is expected to plead guilty to a reckless driving charge on Friday.
“I have arrested and charged Aldrick Tiger Woods”
Woods was found asleep behind the wheel of his Mercedes Benz on Jupiter Island and taken in for a sobriety test.
“Ok, Mr. Woods, can you come up this way please?”
A toxicology report said Woods had five drugs, including two painkillers, but no alcohol in his system.
The 41-year-old’s plea includes entrance into a diversion program for first-time DUI offenders.
If he completes the program, Woods can have the reckless driving charge expunged from his record.
The winner of 14 major titles, Woods blamed the incident on prescription medication he was taking for pain from a recent back surgery.
He has not won a major championship since 2008, but says his game is quote: making progress.
