Five drugs found in Tiger Woods’ system

According to a toxicology report, Tiger Woods had five drugs in his system when he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in May. At the time, police found him asleep in his car on the side the road near his home.

A urine test revealed a mixture of powerful painkillers, sleep and anxiety medication and THC, a chemical component of marijuana.

The 41-year-old Woods said: "As I previously said, I received professional help to manage my medications.

"Recently, I had been trying on my own to treat my back pain and a sleep disorder, including insomnia, but I realize now it was a mistake to do this without medical assistance.

"I am continuing to work with my doctors, and they feel I’ve made significant progress. I remain grateful for the amazing support that I continue to receive and for the family and friends that are assisting me."

The 14-time championship winner agreed to enter a diversion program, which will allow him to clear his record if the program is completed. This entails spending one year on probation, paying a $250 fine including court costs. He would also have to attend a DUI course, complete 50 hours of community service and attend a workshop where victims of impaired drivers share how their lives were damaged or affected, AFP reports.

The toxicology results by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office revealed the presence of:

Hydrocodone (Vicodin)

Hydromorphone (Dilaudid)

Alprazolam (Xanax)

Zolpidem (Ambien)

Delta-9 carboxy THC
