Five drugs found in Woods' system after arrest

Five drugs found in Woods

Los Angeles: Tiger Woods had five drugs, including the opioid painkiller hydrocodone, in his system when he was arrested in May on suspicion of driving under the influence, according to a toxicology report released on Monday.

A urine test revealed four other medications along with hydrocodone -- which is sold under the brand name Vicodin.

Also present were the powerful painkiller hydromorphone; anxiety drug alprazolam (also known as Xanax); sleep drug zolpidem (also known as Ambien) and THC, which is a chemical component of marijuana.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office made the results public on Monday.

"As I previously said, I received professional help to manage my medications," Woods said. "Recently, I had been trying on my own to treat my back pain and a sleep disorder, including insomnia, but I realize now it was a mistake to do this without medical assistance.”
