Tiger Woods asleep at wheel of car before Florida arrest

Tiger Woods asleep at wheel of car before Florida arrest

Inside, Palladino found Woods asleep behind the wheel. He was arrested then on a DUI charge but was eventually released from custody without bond.

The full police reports are below.

The report says that Woods' speech was slurring and that he did not seem to be fully awake.

"What happened to the young man we all thought we knew.Where has he gone?" asked USA Today columnist Christine Brennan, contrasting the mugshot with an image of Woods from one of his most famous victories, winning the Masters in 1997 at the age of 21. He struggled to complete some of those tasks. It took multiple tries to get Woods to touch his finger to his nose, Fandrey wrote, and when he did "he did not bring his hand back down for approximately 15 seconds". He was asleep at his auto at the time of the arrest. The reports line up with what was in the documents published this morning by the Palm Beach Post, but do give more details from officers about the condition they found the pro golfer in, how he answered their questions, and his performance on the sobriety test.

In a statement Monday evening, Woods attributed the arrest to an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medicine.

"Woods stated that he did not know where he was". These include two particular painkillers.

"I expect more from myself too", Woods said in a statement issued late Monday.

"I'm concerned about him", said Steve Stricker, the Presidents Cup captain who chose Woods as one of his assistants. They're out doing things that they're not aware of.

His first court appearance is on July 5. It is unclear as to whether any other legal actions are going to take place as a result of the arrest.

Police say Tiger Woods was asleep at the wheel but had no alcohol in his system when officers spotted his vehicle stopped along a Florida road. He was arrested at 2:49 am local time on Monday morning and was booked at 7:18 am. He was released later on his own recognizance.

Trump also has made a clear break from his Democratic predecessor, who during his final trip overseas called the U.S. He told reporters it was the first time that the G-7 had recognized the North Korean threat as a priority issue.

In the incident report, police described fresh damage to the driver's side of the vehicle - both tires were flat, along with minor damage to the rims.

Woods has not competed in four months, and he had fusion surgery on his lower back - his fourth back surgery since April 2014 - on April 20 that will keep him off the PGA Tour for at least the rest of the season. This comes as he is being required to avoid engaging in tough physical activities as he recovers.

Wearing black athletic shorts and a white T-shirt, Woods told police he had returned from playing golf in Los Angeles.

Woods was once the world's top-ranked golfer, winning 14 major golf tournaments and raking in $1 billion worth of endorsement deals.

The PGA Tour said it would not comment on Woods' arrest.
