Tiger Woods appears in Palm Beach County court to resolve DUI case

Superstar golfer Tiger Woods appeared in a Palm Beach County courtroom Friday to resolve a driving under the influence case.

Woods, 41, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving and agreed to enter a first-time offender program.

In the diversion program, Woods will spend a year on probation and pay a $250 fine and court costs.

Other requirements include attending DUI school, performing 20 hours of community service and attending a workshop where victims of impaired drivers detail how their lives were damaged.

Since he was intoxicated with prescription drugs and marijuana, Woods also must undergo regular drug tests.

Woods was arrested May 29 about 15 miles from his home in Jupiter, where officers found him unconscious in his Mercedes-Benz, which was parked awkwardly on the side of the road and had damage to the driver's side.

The world's former No. 1 golfer didn't know where he was when asked by officers and he stumbled and swayed through a field sobriety test, police dashboard camera video showed. Woods told officers he was taking the painkiller Vicodin and Xanax, which treats anxiety and insomnia, to cope with his fourth back surgery in April. Tests showed he had no alcohol in his system.
