Golfing legend Tiger Woods was unfortunately overcome by a strange reaction to prescription drugs that later lead to him being arrested for a DUI.

“I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescription medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications would affect me so strongly-” Woods said in a statement given to police.

Woodside students, however, were shocked by the recent news, with some not even knowing it happened.

“What? My boy Tiger Woods got arrested? That sucks,” junior Adrian Johnson said expressing his reaction towards the news.

Some even forgot that the golf icon still had appeared in the news, with some thinking he was irrelevant.

“Tiger Woods? What is this, 2008?” sophomore Isaiah Solagbade stated with shock that he was still in the news.

However, others thought it was typical of a celebrity to get arrested, as celebrities often get caught using drugs.

“It’s what famous people do; it’s not unexpected of celebrities to do something like this,” stated junior Justin Swan.

Woods didn’t seem to notice his surroundings when using the prescribed medication. Afterwards it was reported that he fell back asleep after being told to turn off the ignition from the officer, and his speech was reported as a bit sluggish and sleepy.

“I asked Woods if he knew where he was at, to which he stated he had no idea,” an officer wrote in the report.

The golfer has won 14 major tournaments, second only to Jack Nicklaus;- however, he hasn’t golfed competitively since he pulled out of Dubai Desert Classic in February.
