Woods, who has had multiple back surgeries over the years, released a statement about the incident later that day. “I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions,” he said on May 29. “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 had affected me so strongly.”
