Tiger Woods recently took to social networking site Twitter to reveal that he is receiving “professional help” to manage his medications. Woods was arrested last month when police in Jupiter, Florida, found him asleep at the wheel of his car on a road.
The Golf Channel accessed a police report which said that the Golfer had claimed he had not been drinking and he suffered unconsciousness due to a reaction to the prescribed drugs used to treat insomnia. Also Read- Police release dashcam footage of Tiger Woods’ DUI arrest
However, the 41-year-old was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Woods later did not show any sign of alcohol in a breathalyser test.
Police had also released video footage showing Woods struggling to pass a sobriety test. Now the Golfer has finally spoken after the incident took place. Also Read- Tiger Woods told police he had taken anti-anxiety drug Xanax: Report
“I’m currently receiving professional help to manage my medications and the ways that I deal with back pain and a sleep disorder. I want to thank everyone for the amazing outpouring of support and understanding, especially the fans and players on tour,” Woods posted on his Twitter account.
The 14-time major golf champion has not won a PGA Tour title since 2013.
