Tiger Woods To Enter Diversion Program Beginning In October
Tiger Woods was charged with driving under the influence in May when he was found asleep in his Mercedes, allegedly under the influence of a prescription painkiller and some sort of sleeping pill, though no alcohol was found in his system. He agreed to plead guilty to reckless driving and will enter a diversion program that’ll allow him to have his record wiped completely clean if completed.
The prosecutor for the case, Adrienne Ellis, said that though Woods did not appear at Florida courthouse for his arraignment, he agreed to plead guilty at an Oct. 25 hearing and enter Palm Beach County’s program for first-time DUI offenders.
In the diversion program, Tiger will spend 1 year on probation, pay a small fine, attend DUI school, and perform 50 hours of community service.
