Tiger Woods had five drugs in system at time of DUI arrest

Tiger Woods had five drugs in system at time of DUI arrest

American golfer Tiger Woods had five drugs in his system at the time of his arrest in May. 

Earlier this year, Woods was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. 

According to a toxicology report released on Monday, a variety of painkillers and sleeping pills were found in the golfer's system. 

These drugs included an opioid pain medication; Hydromorphone, Alprazolam, an anxiety drug also under the brand name Xanax; Zolpidem, a sleep drug and Delta-9 carboxy THC, which is found in marijuana.

It was not confirmed whether Woods had prescriptions for the medications or medicinal marijuana, which is legal in Florida. 

Woods released a statement on Monday. He insisted that he has been receiving professional help to "manage his medications". 

"Recently, I had been trying on my own to treat my back pain and a sleep disorder, including insomnia, but I realise now it was a mistake to do this without medical assistance."

He went on to say, "I am continuing to work with my doctors, and they feel I've made significant progress. I remain grateful for the amazing support that I continue to receive and for the family and friends that are assisting me."
