Tiger Woods Reportedly Told Police He Was on Xanax at Time of Arrest

Professional golfer Tiger Woods mixed Vicodin and Xanax on Memorial Day before he was arrested on a DUI charge in Jupiter, the Palm Beach Post reported Monday.

Now, according to reports, Woods has agreed to enter into the Jupiter Medical Center to receive treatment for an addiction to prescription pills.

Sources told the site he's in danger of losing joint custody of his two children to ex-wife Elin Nordegren.

He later admitted to police that he had taken anxiety medication Xanax earlier in the night and also was on the painkiller Vicodin.

Woods, who recently underwent back surgery, is now in rehab at The Jupiter Medical Center for a painkiller addiction.

Woods initially stated that the condition he was found in that morning was due to a freakish reaction caused by the combination of drugs.

The 14-time major champion Tiger Woods had back surgery in April. "What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications". The FDA warns on its website that mixing Xanax with opioids may cause "profound sedation, respiratory depression, coma, and death".

After he had arrived at the testing facility, Woods told the police that he had been under four types of medications: Sololexx, Torix, Vioxx and Vicodin, but he didn't mention the Xanax, according to the report obtained by the Golf Channel. The card is described as the highest level of player cards available to gamblers at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona.

The new record shows that Woods was accurate in naming the drugs he had taken. Woods has been experiencing quite a downward spiral lately, and we hope that he will be able to sort things out.
