Tiger Woods Getting Professional Help After DUI In Jupiter

Less than a month after he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, Tiger Woods says he's getting "professional help" for managing his medication.  

The golf star wrote in a statement posted on social media that he will also be looking at ways of dealing with back pain and sleeping.  

Woods was arrested when he was found asleep at the wheel in Jupiter in the early hours of Memorial Day. Breathalyzer tests showed no presence of alcohol, but Woods told officers he had a reaction to several prescription drugs, including Vicodin and Xanax. 

His arraignment has been delayed until from the original July 5th date to August 9th. Woods could qualify for a diversion program in which the DUI charge is downgraded to reckless driving, which results in probation, fine and other conditions such as taking a DUI course.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
