Tiger Woods Is ‘Receiving Professional Help’ After DUI Arrest

Golfing great says he’s seeking assistance to ”help manage my medications and the ways that I deal with back pain and a sleep disorder“

Tiger Woods said Monday that he’s “receiving professional help,” a month after being arrested on DUI charges in Florida.

“I’m currently receiving professional help to help manage my medications and the ways that I deal with back pain and a sleep disorder,” the golfing great tweeted on Monday.

Woods continued, “I want to thank everyone for the amazing outpouring of support and understanding, especially the fans and players on tour.”

Woods was arrested on May 29 and charged with driving under the influence.

The arrest occurred around 7 a.m. on Monday morning in Jupiter, Florida. He was released a few hours later under his own recognizance, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office reported.

The arrest was the latest in a series of woes for Woods that date back to Thanksgiving weekend in 2009, when Woods was involved in a car crash just outside of his home just two days after a National Enquirer report published a story about the golfer being in an extramarital affair.

After the crash, several more women claimed to have had affairs with Woods. Woods admitted infidelity and he and his wife, Elin Nordegren, divorced in August 2010.
