Tiger Woods Says Medication, Not Alcohol, Led to DUI Arrest

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. Pisani specialize in the field of Colorado DUI, Denver DUID Defense, Traffic, and Criminal Defense. Call our Denver office today for a free consultation.
