Police release Tiger Woods DUI arrest video

Police release Tiger Woods DUI arrest video

The officer asks him if he has been drinking, and he says no. The 41-year-old was asleep in his Mercedes Benz in Jupiter, Fla., when police found him alongside a roadway at 2:03 a.m. Before they start, Woods puts his right foot on the hood of the officer's vehicle, and spends some time tying his shoe.

When asked where he was coming from, Woods said, according to USA Today, "Jupiter", but when asked again he said, "LA".

Woods was unable to follow a light with his eyes when asked to do so.

Woods later apologized for the incident, calling what happened an "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications".

In the dash cam footage, Woods is asked by officers to recite his ABCs.

In the dashcam video that police released, the athlete is not seen immediately but is heard telling officers off-camera that he did not know where he was.

"What, what are we doing?" When taking a breathalyser test, the fourteen-time major champion blew 0.00, proving there was in fact no alcohol in his system.


Golf.com released a two-minute version showing Woods perform the test on their Twitter page.

Police noted that Woods was cooperative, but his speech was "extremely slow and slurred, mumbled and confused".

Such speculation only increased last week when Woods posted an update on his blog about his recovery from recent back fusion surgery (his fourth such operation since April 2014).

He was released after a three-hour stint in county jail Monday morning and is due in court July 5.

Katie Phang, a former Florida prosecutor, said the statement in which Woods took full responsibility could come back to haunt him if he fights the charge. Officers noted that both driver's side tires of the Mercedes were flat, with "minor damage to both respective rims", damage to the front and rear bumpers and a rear taillight that appeared to be out.

"I didn't realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly", Woods said in his statement". He has had 79 career victories on the PGA Tour in the past, but his condition will keep him off for at least the rest of the season. He has had several back surgeries, including one a month ago.
