Tiger Woods pleads not guilty to DUI charges

Golfer Tiger Woods has pleaded not guilty to a charge of driving under influence (DUI) following his arrest in Palm Beach County, Florida in May.

He is now expected to admit to a lesser charge of reckless driving and enter a 12-month probation programme.

Dashcam footage of his arrest was released by police in Florida after they found him asleep at the wheel.

Woods later apologised, blaming the incident on “an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications”.

A blood sample taken after his arrest tested positive for painkiller Vicodin and antidepressant Xanax, but proved he had no alcohol in his system.

In a statement posted on social media in 3 July, Mr Woods confirmed he had completed an intensive programme to treat his use of prescription drugs.

Woods did not appear in court in Palm Beach and his lawyer entered the charge on his behalf.
