Woods denies that he was drunk, but sorry for the arrest

Tiger Woods

Internet Desk: Star golfer Tiger Woods was arrested for drunk driving during early hours on Monday in Florida.

The 41-year old, in an apology to his fans, asserted that there had been no alcohol involved and that it was a reaction to a mixture of prescription medication he has been taking.

A police photograph of Woods looking drowsy and unshaven went viral within no time.

This arrest may be a setback in the superstar athlete’s career as he struggles to make it big once again.

The 14-time major champion was arrested by police near his home in Jupiter, Florida, around 3:00 am.

“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions,” Woods said in a statement which stressed that “alcohol was not involved.”

“What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly,” Woods said.

“I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself too.”

An entertainment news website called TMZ.com had previously brought up statements by law enforcement sources, saying that Woods was stopped after being spotted “driving erratically, all over the road.” The website also said that the golfer refused to blow into a breathalyzer.

America’s 14-time major champion made a comeback after 15 months in December, but has not played since his back problems recurred in February. His spinal fusion surgery on April 20- his fourth surgery in three years has limited him to three tournaments in the past two years.
