Remember when Tiger Woods wasn’t a hot mess? Yeah, it’s been a while but we kinda miss those days when he was so golden and untouchable. Now, he’s heading to a DUI diversion program as part of a deal in his case following his arrest on May 29, 2017.
It is expected that his lawyer will enter a not guilty plea before the judge in the Palm Beach County court today. The golfer won’t have to personally appear but it’s been reported that his legal team has been working with prosecutors to iron out a deal.
The DUI diversion program is for first offenders and includes education classes as well as 12 months probation. If Woods accepts this arrangement, he will not be allowed to drink alcohol or take any drugs during that time.
This past May, Woods was found passed out in Mercedes-Benz around 2am. The car had sustained some damage. While he insists he wasn’t drunk, he did admit that his condition may have been the result of a bad mix of prescription drugs.
He faces three misdemeanor charges – driving under the influence, reckless driving, and improper stopping. For his safety as well as everyone else’s on the road, let’s hope we never hear about Woods in a car-related incident again.
