Tiger Woods told officers during his DUI arrest that he had taken Xanax

Tiger Woods told officers during his DUI arrest last month that he had taken Xanax and other prescription medications, according to an unredacted version of the Jupiter Police Department's investigation report, obtained Friday by The Golf Channel.

Woods was found asleep at the wheel of his Mercedes around 2 a.m. on May 29 and arrested on a DUI charge.

A breath test registered 0.0 for alcohol, corroborating Woods’ claim that he had an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medicine.

Woods told officers at a testing facility that he had taken several prescriptions, and the arrest affidavit listed four medications, but not Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug.

Among the medications listed on the affidavit was Vicodin, an opioid pain medication.

The FDA warns on its website that mixing Xanax with opioids may cause “profound sedation, respiratory depression, coma, and death.”
