Tiger Woods had multiple drugs in his system when he was arrested, a toxicology report revealed

Golfer Tiger Woods had multiple medications in his system when he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence on Memorial Day, according to a toxicology report released Monday.

The toxicology report from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office in Florida noted that the following drugs were in his system:

  • Hydrocodone and Hydromorphone, which are opioid pain medications
  • Alprazolam, which is commonly prescribed for anxiety
  • Zolpidem, which is a drug prescribed for insomnia
  • Delta-9 carboxy THC, which is an active ingredient in marijuana

It is unclear whether Woods had prescriptions for all of the medications in his system.

After his arrest, Woods checked into a treatment program to manage his prescription drug use. In July, he announced that he had successfully completed that treatment.

"As I previously said, I received professional help to manage my medications," Woods said Monday in a statement released through a spokesman. "Recently, I had been trying on my own to treat my back pain and a sleep disorder, including insomnia, but I realize now it was a mistake to do this without medical assistance. 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."

Last week, the 41-year-old golfer agreed to enter a DUI first-offender program on Oct. 25. If he completes the program, Woods can ask a judge to expunge his reckless driving conviction.
