Tiger Woods' DUI case is about to go in front of a judge - he's set to be arraigned in a Florida courtroom early Wednesday morning. and TMZ Sports is live streaming the whole thing.
His attorney, Douglas Duncan, noted the golf superstar will not attend the hearing, leaving the not guilty plea as the only option.
Woods could still eventually enter a program for first-time DUI defendants.
Such plea deals are offered to many first-time DUI offenders in Palm Beach County.
Woods was arrested in May on suspicion of DUI after he was found asleep at the wheel with signs of "fresh damage" on his auto, per police records. "The Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office declined comment".
"He would also have to pay a $250 fine and court costs, attend DUI school, perform 50 hours of community service and attend a workshop where victims of impaired drivers detail how their lives were damaged", continued Spencer. Woods is expected to plead guilty to a lesser charge like reckless driving in October before entering the program and completing those benchmarks.
Woods was arrested at 2 a.m.
The 41-year-old was originally arrested back on May 29 approximately 15 miles from his home in Jupiter, Florida while police officers infamously found him unconscious inside his vehicle. It's not clear how he damaged the auto. That led to revelations that he had multiple extramarital affairs and a divorce from his wife Elin Nordegren, the mother of his two children.
A blood sample taken after his arrest tested positive for painkiller Vicodin and antidepressant Xanax, but proved he had no alcohol in his system.
Last month, Woods said he had completed an "intensive program" to help him manage his prescription medications.
His 79 PGA Tour victories and 14 major titles both rank No. 2 all-time.
