Tiger Woods expected to make plea deal at DUI hearing in Palm Beach Co. Friday

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods is expected to make a plea deal at a DUI hearing in Palm Beach County on Friday.

The hearing was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but was postponed. No reason was given for the change.

The 41-year-old superstar golfer is scheduled to plead guilty to reckless driving.

Woods was arrested May 29 when officers found him unconscious in his parked Mercedes-Benz. A toxicology report showed he had the active ingredient for marijuana, two painkillers, a sleep drug and an anti-anxiety drug but no alcohol in his system.
