Tiger Woods was arrested over the weekend for driving under the influence, but claims alcohol wasn’t involved. He said, “I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions. I want the public to know 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.” Tiger has had 4 back surgeries since 2014, with the most recent surgery on April 19th.
