Tiger Woods was arrested upon suspicion of DUI early Monday morning. Woods was reportedly driving “erratically, all over the road” when he was stopped law-enforcement sources told TMZ. As the officer approached he reportedly smelled alcohol coming from inside the vehicle. However, Woods states it was a bad reaction to his medications, and not alcohol, that caused him to drive so erratically. Woods refused a breathalyzer test on scene and was arrested for DUI. DUI’s are not just the result of alcohol; driving under the influence of any intoxicating substance can result in a DUI or DUID charge. There is plenty of confusion regarding legal blood concentrations of prescribed medications while driving. The Law Offices of Steven J.
