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.

The Tiger bashing is over, have enough common decency to allow what is left of this family to try and salvage what they can without the teeth of the media and those who just don`t like him leave them alone. I feel if we as common people had this amount of pressure on us we would look for away out also. BE HUMAN BACK OFF !!!

Why are you publishing confidential information from a patient's medical records? Your sources are breeching confidentiality rules--and breaking the law. TMZ is complicit in an illegal conspiracy.

You should face sanctions for printing this.

They should have put him on lock down. With his history of having sex with, let me see, almost everyone, would the other patients be safe around him. He deserves whatever comes from this. What a jerk he turned out to be.

Booze, narcotics, sleeping pills, and a crash with an inebriated Tiger, women being gurneyed out of his house to the hospital. Maybe he was on his way to score some coke to get back "up". A slew of sleazy woman and sex in a church parking lot. This opens it up for some more sponsors. I wonder how much more money he'll rake in off this. He should snap back fine from this. Just a minor bump in the road.

In years passed our news was delivered in a manner so pleasing to the public that personal matters surrounding particular top profile celebs were still kept in the dark from the prying ruthless eyes of the press.

With a huge leap ahead in technology we have now access to so much information that allows us to not only read up on our favorite media hype but also follow it in real time streamed over the ubiquitous cyberspace know as the internet.

We read the news paper, magazines and tabloids and the head lines read "Scandal; our top actors are cheating on eachother", "50lbs. gain; Does ______ fit the Celebrity profile", "Rape, contriversy and gossip" and more and more are we exposed to scandalous event surrounding our modern day gods and goddess' that we lose track of who they are.

Since when do we judge an artist by his/her life?
Is it not the work of an artist that inspires us to succeed and want to follow in their foot steps?

Why do we not allow personal matters to stay between relatives and family as they are supposed to?

What give us the right to place judgement on those we don't even have any relative connection to?

Are we so bored with our own lives that the life and events of another 'humanbeing' (Being Human) making the same mistakes we all do justifies, the condeming of this particular being?

I ask one final question... If Tiger wasn't the worlds best golfer, would you really care to pry as much as you already have?

Give it a rest!

Oh and one more thing... Negative media and press coverage is still media; you're only making him richer than he already is...

Love, Peace and Chicken Greese, Ya'll!

I read an article about FHP's and state attorney handling Tiger Woods investigation is appalling. Witnesses in Windemere said he was sleeping or something under influence. He should have been checked for DUI immediately like blood taken. I beleive that FHP violated the law they have enforce in event like a DUI. "An average joe" would be give blood test to check content because he is not rich or powerful - "celebrity justice" I have a hunch Tiger was stoned when he wrecked his car - he should have popped for DUI.
This is totally B.S. how state's traffic enforcement cops hanlde like the "keystone cops". Luckily this happened in around 2:30 AM instead 7 or 8AM because he could have hit a kid who is going to a busstop. I lost respect for FHP and State Attorney for this issue.

Leave Tiger alone, it is time 4 he & his wife 2 work out their problems. The Founding Fathers of this Country did more harm than Tiger Woods. He chngd history as a result of Racist Golfers who didn't want Black People Joining their Prestigious Country Clubs. All you haters, kick rocks, u'll never have Billions like Tiger. Type "Comedian Earthquake Facebook" on Google get ur LAUGH ON BECOME A FAN
