Tiger Woods

Admitted to Hospital as OD

12/8/2009 2:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

HospitalTiger Woods was admitted to Health Central Hospital the day after Thanksgiving as an overdose.

Sources connected with the hospital tell TMZ the admissions chart lists "OD" and that he was having trouble breathing.

We're told the fifth floor of the hospital was put on lockdown when Tiger arrived. Tiger was admitted under an alias -- William Smith. His wife, Elin Nordegren was by his side.

As we first reported, Elin gave paramedics two pill bottles at the accident scene -- we now know the prescriptions were for Ambien and Vicodin. Tiger was in and out of consciousness, snoring at the scene, and our sources say he clearly appeared to be under the influence of something -- not alcohol.

We're also told doctors used a breathing tube to assist his respiration.

We're also told hospital officials changed Tiger's alias after a few hours to another alias because they feared people would find out he was there.

Hey Harvey!!!

If the former physicians to MJ and Anna Nicole Smith are under investigation and/or facing charges for illegally prescribing medications via AN ALIAS, how is it the hospital that treated Tiger Woods could admit him under an alias and subsequently administer treatment and presumabely medications and NOT be guilty of the same offenses?!?

Simple case of D.U.A> Driving Under Ambien. It all points to it. He got a careless driving instead of a DUI.

as a recovering addict from pain meds the same as vicodin(lortab) and xanax. I knew exactly what was wrong the day it happened. he has been abusing these meds. unfortunately, under lifes pressures pain meds make you feel in a good mood , but you get addicted quick. being rich only provides more. think of it. any injury would put him in alignment with an eventual pain med perscription. he needs to get off them, or will ruin you life. Im sober nine months, and i have my life back. good luck, but get off them now.. i weaned myself off of the levels i was taking slowly, and it worked. its the poor mans way of doing it. he can afford to go to treatment and be put under so he doesnt have to feel the horrendous withdrawls. thats the extreme measure. otherwise they will throw suboxone or methadone at him if he has a bad addiction, and they are opiates too, and unless carefully watched by a doctor addicts just get addicted to that too.... they only cover up the withdrawls... good luck tiger.

What is wrong with the world these days? Don't these whores have any ethics. When they advertise GFE (girlfriend experience) and discretion is 100% assured....discreet gurantee. Tiger trusted them and was misleaded. Don't these sex provider...oops, I meant service provider have any morals. By the looks of their pictures I don't know what Tiger was think. They are all trashy. One has teeth like Mr. Ed, the other ones need tons of makeup to look half decent. You need a chisel to get it over. Anyway, that just further cement the saying that you cannot trust women especially money hungry hoe/sluts. I think Tiger was framed. It not your fault Tiger. You still da'man. Even though you can't drive a vehicle 30 feet but you can drive a golf ball 400 yards. As the number one golfer in the world I would blame the caddy for this one. You were driving a Cadillac, right. Next time blindfold these bitches. Take care fella. God speed. PS: If you play both side give me a call. I need some dough too....I won't take too much though. Again, take care stud.

You people believe everything you read. All he needs to do is go out and do what he does better than anyone in the world, win golf tournaments. All will be forgiven.

I always thought the guy was on the verge of blowing up...look at the way he get s all pissed off when he hits an errant shot on the course...its one thing to be competitive but another to whine about a bad drive or fairway shot or a putt for that matter but the film crews only show it once in a while to try and keep the cheaters image stellar and pure...and now we all know..Well I know one thing for sure and that is Jacks major record is now safe...and that's a good thing cause this guy doesn't deserve to break it. Golf is a game of etiquette on and off the course...Tgers best days are behind him cause everytime he walks down the fairways from now on some heckler is gonna be yelling..CHEETAH WOODS..thats never gonna let the guy ever concentrate again on golf the way he did before and the shame he will carry with him will screw up his mental part of the game forever. Should of been thinking with your other head Tiger.

To Msg. #95: first off, if you believe Hugh Hefner is actually having sex with the 18 year olds, then you're delusional. It's pretty common knowledge that they're being paid just to be eye candy. Hef hasn't been able to get it up for years. Second, and more important - just because YOU'RE such a pig that you think serial cheating is okay and aren't offended by it, doesn't mean that a man who IS offended by it must be gay. There's still men out there that have morals and integrity, and DO think this behavior is wrong. Don't judge REAL men by yourself, okay?

Well well...Tiger is slowly slipping out of the "Great black man in the white golf world." You know, if Emenem OD'd too, hoping both he and Tiger didn't survive, racial stereotypes would be right back where they are suppose to be. lol!

Why is the media treating this guy like a politician. He cheated on his wife ,big deal. Nobody other athlete in history has gone through this type of meadia attention because cheating on spouse. The guy has did lots of work and donated plenty of money to less fortunate people than him. TMZ is acting like Tiger was caught with underage boys, sexually assaulted a woman.TMZ give it a rest!!!!!!!!!
