Tiger Woods hearing on DUI charge delayed to August

The arraignment of golfer Tiger Woods on a DUI charge has been delayed until August.

Court documents filed on Thursday show the presiding judge cancelled the original July 5 hearing and reset it for August 9.

Woods was charged with driving under the influence after police in Jupiter, Florida, found him asleep at the wheel of his Mercedes-Benz about 2am on May 29.

Breath tests showed no presence of alcohol, but Woods told officers he had a reaction to several prescription drugs, including Vicodin and Xanax.

Woods could qualify for a diversion programme in which the DUI charge is downgraded to reckless driving, which results in a probation, fine and other conditions such as taking a DUI course.

Woods’ attorney did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
The 14-time major champion last played competitive golf in February in Dubai, with the last few years of his career being a never-ending story of back and knee injuries.
