PALM BEACH GARDENS, FLORIDA - A Florida prosecutor says Tiger Woods has completed 50 hours of community service as part of a plea deal where he avoided going to jail after a driving under the influence arrest.

Prosecutor Dave Aronberg said Friday after Woods pleaded guilty to reckless driving that the superstar golfer did his community service through The Tiger Woods Foundation. Aronberg didn't say specifically what Woods did, but says it met the terms of the deal.

Aronberg says Woods was treated like any other defendant in his situation. He says Woods qualified for the diversion program in part because he had no prior record and was not involved in an accident.

Woods will be on probation for a year and a judge warned that if he violated it, he could face up to 90 days in jail.

Woods answered the judge's questions but did not make a statement.

Since he was intoxicated with prescription drugs and marijuana, he will also be required to undergo regular drug tests. He was arrested in May after being found passed out in his Mercedes.
