Tiger Woods Enters Not Guilty Plea, Will Enter DUI First-Time Offender Program

Tiger won't be at his arraignment hearing on Wednesday.

In an expected move, Tiger Woods will not be attending his arraignment on a driving under the influence charge.

According to Terry Spencer of the Associated Press, Woods' attorney, Douglas Duncan, said in an email Tuesday that Woods will not be attending the hearing in Florida.

The move made it clear that Tiger will enter a "not guilty" plea because any other plea requires the defendant's presence.

The move follows Woods' much-publicized arrest earlier this year in May. Woods was found asleep at the wheel of his car and was arrested under the suspicion of a driving under the influence.

Woods' next court date is set for October 25.
