Woods Avoids DUI Charge, Enters Plea Deal

On Friday, Tiger Woods pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless driving during a court hearing in Palm Beach County, Florida.

Woods, who is attempting a comeback following back surgery in April, agreed to enter a pre-trial diversion program.

As part of the plea deal, the 14-time major winner will pay a $250 fine, attend a DUI program, and complete 50 hours of community service.

Upon successful completion of the program, the state of Florida will drop the DUI charge.

The legal ordeal stems from the Memorial Day arrest of Woods for DUI in Jupiter, Florida.

A published toxicology report later revealed that Woods had a cocktail of five drugs in his system at the time of his booking, including Xanax and Vicodin. No alcohol was found in his system.
