The Jupiter Florida Police have released the dash cam video of Golf Pro, Tiger Woods arrest.
On Monday, May 29, 2017, police noticed a Mercedes pulled awkwardly to the side of the road with the engine running, the brake lights on and a right turn signal blinking. Both tires on the left side of the car were flat, and police observed fresh damage to the driver’s side.
When police approached the car, the man inside appeared to not know where he was. That man was identified as Tiger Woods.
The footage shows Woods stumbling and swaying while attempting to do a field sobriety test.
Although Woods breathelizer test registered a blood alcohol level of 0.00 percent, Woods later said his condition was caused by prescription medications.
Woods was handicuffed and arrested for driving under the influence.
He was released a few hours later on his own recognizance with no bond, according to records. He was, however cited for DUI and improper parking, and will be arraigned on July 5, 2017.
In a statement after his arrest Monday before the video surfaced, Woods said alcohol was not involved and he blamed his disorientation on “an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications.” Woods did not indicate the name or type of medication.
Woods, who has been recovering from recent back surgery, said he didn’t realize the mix of medications would affect him so strongly.
The 41 year-old golfer has undergone multiple back surgeries, including one a month ago, and hasn’t played competitive golf since he pulled out of the Dubai Desert Classic in February 2017.
We hope Woods can pull through this unscathed. He’s been having difficulties since his tumultuous divorce and the death of his Father.
