An empty, unlabled pill bottle was found near Tiger Woods’ wrecked SUV — and the pro-golfer was “somewhat combative” when first responders tried to treat him at the scene, according to a newly-released police report.

The 22-page report obtained by TMZ said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputies found an “empty plastic pharmaceutical container” in the front pocket of a backpack resting in the brush close to Woods’ car.

When EMTs tried to free him from the wreckage Woods, 45, was “somewhat combative” — and so disoriented he thought he was in Florida, where he lives, rather than in Southern California, the report said.

Authorities said Wednesday that Woods was going as fast as 87 mph, close to double the limit, in the February crash that nearly killed him.
