Tiger Woods pleads guilty

And enters diversion programme

Tiger Woods pleads guilty Tiger Woods has pleaded guilty to reckless driving and agreed to enter a diversion programme, five months after he was found passed out in his Mercedes with prescription drugs and marijuana in his system. 

Tiger Woods spoke only briefly during a hearing at a Palm Beach County courthouse yesterday, answering questions from a judge about his plea agreement.

Prosecutors dropped his driving under the influence charge and the judge warned him to stay out of trouble. 

Judge Sandra Bosso-Pardo said: “This particular plea agreement has no jail time on it. However, if you violate your probation in any significant way, I could revoke your probation and then I could sentence you to jail for 90 days with a fine of up to $500. Is that understood?” 

Woods nodded. He did not make any statement during the hearing or outside the courthouse.

Woods will spend a year on probation and pay a $250 fine and court costs. He has already met some of the programme’s other requirements, completing 50 hours of community service at the Tiger Woods Foundation, prosecutor Dave Aronberg said.
