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.

It seemed like something was up when there were reports that Tiger was on the ground - snoring - right after his car accident. That just ain’t right. Seriously...

Now that Elin has moved out, he has all the time in the world to screw around all comers all he wants, except blackasianlatinas. And when he does, he will be no different than Clooney, Jeter, and all those single men whores. But this time Tiger, use industrial strenght condoms, going bareback can kill ya.

They licked his boots clean after he stepped in shi!. Wait til he injures or kills someone with his big caddy. The cops & the hospital will cover that up also.

Well you had to know this was how this was going to end. Tiger has a high dollar PR team, yet the media was having a field with all the mistress gossip, and hardly a word from Tigers PR team? Anyone had to see from the beginning that the story of Elin beating him was a coverup for something, after all whos reputation is more important to protect? I am truly sorry that, if this is true, some idiot leaked it to the press. Tiger deserves his privacy and now it appears it is all a giant mess. Tiger needs his PR team to step up and come up with something good at this point.

NEWS ALERT! Famous wealthy married men have girlfriends on the side!!!!!!!!!! David Letterman, John Edwards, Governor Spritzer,Governor Mark Sanford, Pete Carroll, Tiger Woods etc. You name the married celeb man and they get young girls on the side. Why hasn't TMZ jumped on the Pete Carroll story? Would you MORAL F**GGS suggest Pete Carroll kill himself? You people need to grow up, and if the sponsors think they can make money they will keep him.

Wow...This guy is really messed up. Hope he gets help. He surely needs it. I am wondering if he ever really loved his wife at all. Heard a mental health professional explain narcissistic personalities and Woods self indulgence and self absorbed lifestyle fits the profile. I feel sorry for his children especially. Did he ever think about them when he was boinking all of these women. Obviously not. I have a feeling his marriage is doomed. What women would stay with someone who has been with that many women...and the list goes on. I must wonder if she has had herself tested for anything that he might have possibly transmitted to her. God forbid!

TMZ - If this story is true that he OD'd, thenyour story on the 7th that Tiger kept texting Rachel - the day after Thanksgiving - wanting to see her, etc. must not be true. Doubt he was texting her from hospital bed. True, ethical journalists wouldn't print it until they verified it.
