Golf: Woods told police he took Xanax

Tiger Woods told police that he was taking Xanax the night he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, an unredacted version of the police report obtained by the Golf Channel showed.

The version of the Jupiter, Florida, Police Department report made public on Friday after a request by the Golf Channel contained material redacted from the version released to media last week.

Woods, 41, was found asleep at the wheel on May 29 and arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

A breathalyser test showed no alcohol in his system, and the 14-time major golf champion has said an “unexpected reaction to prescribed medications” led to the incident.

Woods announced in May that he had undergone a fourth back surgery that would keep him off 2017 season. [Reuters]
