Woods: Alcohol 'not involved in my arrest'


"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". Nevertheless, the report also included that Woods had "extremely slow and slurred speech" and did not know where he was.

The golf superstar, who issued a statement on Monday saying alcohol was not involved in the incident, needed to be woken by a police officer, his arrest report showed. No alcohol was found in his system when he took a Breathalyzer test.

Woods was briefly booked into a Palm Beach jail but released just a few hours later on his own recognizance, and without having to post bail.

The 41-year-old golfer, who underwent surgery in April to relieve lingering back pain, on Monday blamed an unexpected reaction to legal drugs for his arrest and apologized for the incident.

A statement from Woods said: 'I take full responsibility.

Both front tires were flat and both front and back bumpers were damaged.

Tiger failed the field sobriety test, including the one-leg stand and nose touch.

Police said "It should be noted that Woods was headed south bound away from Hobe Sound".

Woods told police he was "coming from L.A. California from golfing". His vehicle was parked in a direction headed the opposite way from his home on Jupiter Island. Another is similar in spelling to Etorix, a painkiller not now approved in the United States. Painkillers are often prescribed after such surgeries, and many carry warnings to avoid driving while taking them.

Woods told police he was recovering from surgery.

Woods and Vonn dated for three years before splitting in May 2015. The tests reported that although he was cooperative, he was also "very drowsy, hard to watch, and could not even walk". He was only able to complete the task successfully after several attempts by police to explain the instructions, documents show.

Speaking ahead of his Memorial Tournament on Tuesday, Nicklaus said: "Tiger's a friend, he's been great for the game of golf and I think he needs all of our help".

His first court appearance is on July 5. He was cited not only for DUI, but also for improper stopping, standing or parking in an illegal space. The car's motor was running, the brake lights were lit and the right turn signal was blinking, the affidavit says.

Tiger Woods signs copies of his new book, "The 1997 Masters: My Story", on March 20.
