Tiger Woods sentenced to 12 months probation after pleading guilty to reckless driving

Tiger Woods has been sentenced to 12 months of probation after pleading guilty to reckless driving. 

The professional golfer was found unconscious behind the wheel of his Mercedes-Benz by police on May 29 in Jupiter, Florida. He was arrested on charges of DUI, reckless driving, and improper stopping.


Toxicology reports released by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office showed Woods had several pain killers, anxiety calmer Xanax, a sleeping pill, and the active ingredient in marijuana, THC, in his system.

Woods will now be required to take a diversion program, pay a $250 fine and court costs, perform 20 hours of community service, attend DUI school, and attend a workshop where victims of impaired drivers discuss how their lives were damaged by the crime. He will also be asked to take regular drug tests.
