Tiger Woods Pleads Not Guilty To Impaired Driving

Tiger Woods has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence but has agreed to enter a diversion program.

It means the charge will be dropped later this year.

The golf legend did not appear in court in Florida but he was represented by his lawyer Douglas Duncan.

Prosecutor Adrienne Ellis says Woods agreed to enter a plea of guilty to reckless driving at an October 25th hearing and enter the diversion program for first-time DUI offenders.

Back in May, Woods was found asleep behind the wheel of his Mercedes-Benz, parked on the road.

No alcohol was found in his system but the incident was caused from an apparent mixture of a prescription painkiller and an anti-insomnia drug.

On June 19, 2017, Woods tweeted "I'm currently receiving professional help to manage my medications and the ways that I deal with back pain and a sleep disorder."

He also completed a private intensive program.
