Tiger Woods completes 'private intensive program' after DUI arrest

Woods arrested May 29 after taking Xanax, Vicodin


JUPITER, Fla. – Tiger Woods has completed a "private intensive program" just over a month after he was arrested on a DUI charge in Jupiter, the professional golfer announced on Twitter.

"I recently completed an out-of-state private intensive program," Woods wrote. "I will continue to tackle this going forward with my doctors, family and friends. I am so very thankful for all of the support I've received."

According to an arrest report, Woods was found May 29 asleep at the wheel of his Mercedes-Benz, which was stopped in a bicycle lane, when officers arrived shortly after 2 a.m.

Police said Woods "was extremely slow to answer questions, had slurred and mumbled speech," and showed signs of being impaired.

According to the report, Woods told police he was coming from Los Angeles and was on his way to Orange County, California. Woods later said he was coming from Jupiter.

Police said Woods told officers he didn't have anything to drink and hadn't taken any illegal drugs.

Woods told officers that he had taken medications that were prescribed to him, including Xanax and Vicodin, the arrest report said.

The 41-year-old golfer, who has a home on Jupiter Island, released a statement after his arrest saying that he had "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications."

Police said Woods took two breath tests -- each recording 0.000 percent -- and provided a urine sample.

Woods has undergone multiple back surgeries and hasn't played competitive golf since February.
