Tiger Woods arrested for driving under the influence...releases statement denying it was alcohol

Yesterday Former world number one golfer, Tiger Woods was arrested in Florida for Driving Under The Influence (DIU). 
He was taken in around 3 AM and released from Palm Beach County Jail at 10:50 AM, after he was spotted driving erratically all over the road. Police officers during his arrest say they smelt alcohol on his breathe.

The golf legend later released a statement on his arrest. He denied it had anything to do with alcohol. He blamed his behaviour on an unexpected reaction to a medication he took.
 He said in his statement:

"I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions.  I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved.  What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications.  I didn't realize the mix of medications affected me so strongly.  "I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends, and the fans.  I expect more from myself, too.  I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again.I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Dept. and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office for their professionalism."
