Golfer Tiger Woods will plead guilty to reckless driving in South Florida for an incident back in May, and enter into a diversion program.

  • Tiger Woods to enter guilty plea Friday for reckless driving
  • Will enter a DUI diversion program
  • Was arrested in May when he was found unconscious in a car

Woods will enter the plea Friday for a May 29 arrest where officers found him unconscious in a parked car.

Woods has also agreed to enter into a diversion program for intoxicated drivers. He'll spend a year on probation, pay a $250 fine and attend DUI school.

The hearing was originally supposed to happen on Wednesday, but it was pushed back to Friday. No reason for the change was given.

A toxicology report showed the 41-year-old Woods had the active ingredient for marijuana, two painkillers, a sleep drug and an anti-anxiety drug in his system when he was arrested. There was no alcohol, however.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
