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.

Not a fan of Tiger    

In no way am I sticking up for this guy, but I think Tiger's father's death might have something to do with his behavior. Those two were very close, and I think Tiger could'nt cope with his father's death, hence, Tiger making these poor decisions. Just a theory, that's all.

This story keeps taking one bizarre turn after another. Did he OD after she confronted him? Did she not realize that he was OD'ing when she went after him in the golf cart? Or did we have it all wrong - was she chasing him because she knew he had OD'd and was trying to save him from himself? If he had OD'd, why was he talking to his mistresses the very next day and joking about needing to buy Elin a house on a finger?

Or is this just a big lie. A story planted by Tiger's people to garner sympathy? I don't trust anything coming from his camp. They will do ANYTHING to protect Tiger, his image and his $$$$$$$$$$$$

I am disgusted by this whole situation.

Was any of this going on before Tiger's father died?

Who really called 911? Who gave conflicting reports to the police (reported by TMZ)?

The golf club has now been replaced by two pill bottles.

Are we going away from the story that Tiger was sexting while on ambien when he got the beat down and chased out of the house?

If I scroll up, the TMZ story says that Injuries were caused by Wife and not SUV, but now it's caused by overdose.

Can tiger Talk? Did they turn the cops away because he can't speak? First reports were that no substance was involved and that crash occured because he was distracted from a golf club wielding wife? Now he had an overdose and was trying to presumably drive himself to the hospital?

Today we had two stories leaked 'medical sources' from an event two weeks ago that suggested that Tiger's physical condition was worse than reported?

How many of these so called mistresses are real Tiger's mistresses?

The first shot that comes from Tiger and Elin will be lawsuits. Guarantee it.

Tiger's been having Ambi-sex, he dosed up real good before taking out the fire hydrant and tree.One of his F***buddy girlfriends turned him onto it.Don't forget,Tiger was a nerdy kid growing up, he did nothing but obey his obsessed father's strict golf regiment daily.Tiger had little experience with women growing up, he's like a kid in a candy store, and it bit him in the ass.

You don't snore when you are unconscious. If he had to be intubated the neighbor most likely confused labored breathing with snoring; they can sound similar.
