Tiger Woods was asleep at the wheel, changed his story: police report

04 June 2017, 04:47 | Susie Olson

The 41-year-old was arrested by police near his home in Jupiter, Florida, around 3:00 am (0700 GMT) before his release later Monday after being charged with DUI. He was released on his own recognizance.

"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".

A 79-time victor on the PGA Tour who was world number one for a record 683 weeks, Woods lost form in recent years due to injuries and the mastering of a new swing while his ranking has plummeted to 876 after his long spell on the sidelines.

There were no odors coming from Woods or the auto, according to one officer.

"If he's clean", O'Grady said with almost flawless logic, "what does it matter what the rest of them are on?"

Woods' arrest took place about 9 miles from his palatial multimillion-dollar estate on Hobe Sound.

Mark Steinberg, Woods's longtime agent, would not say Monday evening whether the mix of medications Woods cited was related to his back problems.


Woods then admitted that he had taken a mixture of medications, the pain pill Vicodin, and two anti-inflammatory medications Soloxex and Torix. He told the officer he did not know where he was. "Nowhere" would have been accurate enough.

Does Tiger Woods deserve some sympathy?

He has not won a major title since 2008. But the rest of his body began betraying him before that. "And the Tour would love to see him come back". I identified myself as Ofc.

Rist added, "I think he's a good person, and clearly he's a good father, and he's going through a hard time, and I think people should offer support instead of applauding his downfall".

This was not Woods' first run-in with Florida police.

Woods, who had been No. 1 longer than any other golfer, has not been a factor since his last victory in August 2013 as he battled through back surgeries from a week before the 2014 Masters until his most recent fusion surgery on his lower back. He was racking up major championships at a faster clip than even Nicklaus had, and on pace to pass Sam Snead for all-time tour wins easily. "It's just a matter of not screwing up and letting it fuse", Woods wrote. If Woods has a problem with painkillers, it's hardly a high-class headache and he's got way too much company.

Woods has previously made headlines away from the golf course.
