DUI

Yesterday, Tiger Woods was arrested for a DUI in his home state of Florida.

The golfer, who less than a decade ago was raking in €1 billion, was arrested for "driving erratically, all over the road," in the early hours of the morning.

According to TMZ, police sources said that the former sportsman was "arrogant," when the police smelled booze off his breath and refused to take a breathalyser test.

This refusal led to an automatic arrest, however this morning his team have insisted that he was not drunk.

Instead, they're claiming the incident was the result of "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications."

He was in police custody for nearly four hours before being released.

In a statement, Tiger said: "I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions.

"I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn't realise the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.

"I would like to apologise with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself too.

"I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again.

"I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Department and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office for their professionalism."

We all know him as Squidward Tenticles on SpongeBob SquarePants, but the voiceover of the rather annoying squid, Rodger Bumpass, has been served with a DUI.

Sources close to the Nickleodeon programme told TMZ that the show's execs don't view a DUI as a deal breaker – but, we suppose half of Hollywood would lose their job if that was the case. 

They told the website that the only basis for firing him would be under a "morals clause," and they don't see a DUI as an immoral act.

He was arrested and given the DUI after police saw his car in the middle of the road. They said he was sitting on the hood of the car and admitted to drinking and driving.

Earlier in the week, Rodger told TMZ that he was worried sick he'd be fired. 

So, fear not, Squidward is still going to grace our TV screens for a very long time.

We all swooned over him in Drake and Josh back in th day, but Drake Bell has turned into a bit of a bad boy of late.

The actor was arrested on Monday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence in California, reports E! News.

The 29-year-old was stopped around 2.20am by the police after they allegedly witnesses him driving carelessly.

According to the local police department, Drake was "swerving and speeding after abruptly stopping at a red light."

They also added that the officer that pulled him over could smell alcohol coming from his car and Drake also failed a sobriety test.

Less than a year ago Olympian Michael Phelps announced on social media that he was busted for drunk driving. Not once, but twice.

It is hard to believe but there was a time not too long ago when the champion swimmer’s coach was worried about what state he would find Michael in when he showed up for training.

Following his DUI arrests, Michael went to rehab for treatment and also faced a six-month suspension from competitive swimming.

In a recent interview with the press though, the man with the most Olympic gold medals in history seems determined to but those days behind him, according to reports in People magazine.

At least until after the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.

The 30-year old told the media this week, “Before I even went to court, I said to myself that I'm not going to drink until after Rio – if I ever drink again.”

While Michael will not be competing in the world championships due to his suspension, he will be competing this week in the U.S championships and has been determined to get himself back on track. He says that in the past he hasn't much that much effort into his sobriety:

"Going into 2008 and 2012, I didn't do that. I didn't say I was going to take a year off from drinking and not have a drink." 

“I go to bed earlier. I sleep more. I wake up every day and have a completely clear head. I don't feel like my head went through a brick wall.”

He admits that some days he is tempted to ditch the training and have a pint instead, he knows it will be worth the hard work in the end.

"I have a year left in my career," he said. "If I really want it bad enough, I will make that sacrifice." 

The 18-times gold medallist also announced his engagement to Nicole Johnson earlier this year. He has said that therapy has helped in confront his issues.

“I feel like I've learned so much about myself, who I truly am. I can honestly say there aren't many people who have seen who I really am."

Her personal struggles have been well-documented in recent years – but witnesses say Amanda Bynes was looking better as she made a rare public appearance in Los Angeles this week.

She was spotted yesterday in Craig’s, a seriously hip steakhouse in West Hollywood which is a favourite of celebrities – as well as the paparazzi.

​She was wearing a pair of giant sunglasses and an oversized grey jumper. Notably, the 29-year-old still sported her bright blonde hair, worn in a long, straight style, and she had bejewelled acrylic nails. 

She was also accompanied by her life coach, a woman who has been helping her get back on track.

Amanda hasn't been seen in public since November.

It is thought that the former child-star, who has battled mental health issues and had been exhibiting worrying behaviour, is now in a much better place.

One eye-witness said that Amanda yesterday seemed quiet and reflective during her time at Craig’s. She and her life coach left together.

"Amanda is doing great. She appreciates all of the love and support she receives from family, friends and fans," her spokesperson told PEOPLE in response to the sighting.

Legal representatives for her parents, Lynn and Rick, also told the same website: "She is doing great, working on her fashion design and staying focused on living a balanced and healthy life."

It has been reported that Ms Bynes has made sufficient improvements to move out of her parents’ home and into her own apartment.

It is believed that Amanda’s relationship with her mum and dad, which at times has been hugely strained, has also improved significantly since late last year.

As recently as last October, the star was being treated in a psychiatric facility.

In 2012, she was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, and two years ago she was involuntarily hospitalised because of her erratic behaviour.

Two sets of hit and run charges against her were dismissed when she made financial settlements out of court.

She has also been caught shoplifting and in a series of worrying tweets, she made several incredible accusations – including that she had been sexually abused by her father.

It was a comment she later retracted, saying that a "microchip made her say it".

The former Nickelodeon star remains under the temporary conservatorship of her parents. A court hearing later this month will assess her current condition.

Justin Bieber is insisting the reason he failed his sobriety test last January was due to a foot injury and not because he was under the influence.

Bieber was charged for DUI (driving under the influence) after being pulled over by Miami police for dangerous driving.

The Canadian singer’s blood tests have since revealed that the 20-year-old had an alcohol level of .014 as well as traces of marijuana and Xanax in his system.

However the singer insists the only reason he failed the sobriety test was due to having a wobbly leg that prevented him from walking straight.

Reports since then have backed up Bieber’s story, revealing he had a hairline fracture on his foot after a skateboarding accident, but it still doesn’t explain his blood test results.

The singer will appear in court next May to face charges of DUI, resisting arrest and driving without a valid license.
