Tiger Woods broke his silence following his DUI arrest on Monday night in Florida.
Police reportedly observed him driving erratically, and took him into custody when he allegedly refused a Breathalyzer test. He was released hours later on his own recognizance.
The golfer stated, "I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions. I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn't realize the mix of medications affected me so strongly."
Woods continues, "I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends, and the fans. I expect more from myself, too. I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again. I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Dept. and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office for their professionalism."
