I don't wish to prejudge people, but with the amount of back surgeries he's had, how his career has taken a dive (it's time to retire Tiger), and all the other craziness in his life, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if an enabler doctor has been prescribing him oxycodone in high quantities. The "unexpected reaction" is probably a reaction to an addiction to painkillers. I know several people whose lives have been undone by opiates, and it's something that effects people from every walk of life because they are originally prescribed for legit medical reasons. Like chronic pain. I have no doubt that Tiger's back has been killing him.

I hope my suspicions are wrong, but I have just seen it too many times, and with celebs, access is so much easier.

The police had to wake up Tiger Woods when they approached his running vehicle prior to arresting him on a DUI charge early Monday morning, according to the police report.

According to the report, the officer said Woods "had extremely slow and slurred speech" and struggled with several roadside tasks. The report noted that the golfer changed his story about where he was going and where he was coming from.

Woods told police he was taking several prescriptions, including two painkillers. Police said Woods was "cooperative as much as possible" and that he agreed to take a breath test and a urine test. He blew a 0.00 in the breath test.

The fact that he was taking 2 prescription painkillers suggests to me a quack might be involved.
