Tiger Woods' DUI Arrest: Shocking New Details

Golfer Tiger Woods was taken into custody early Monday morning in Jupiter Island, Florida, on suspicion of DUI, and now a police report obtained by "Extra" reveals new details from the scene.

According to the report, an officer found Woods asleep at the wheel of his 2015 Mercedes just after 2 a.m. The motor was running and the right blinker was flashing. Tiger had to be woken up, and told police he had been golfing in L.A. before admitting "he did not know where he was."

The officer noted the athlete’s speech was “slow” and “very slurred.”

Damage to the vehicle included two flat tires on the driver’s side, scrapes and scuffs on the rear bumper and the right rear tail light was out.

Tiger failed the field sobriety test, including the one-leg stand and nose touch. When asked if he understood the Romberg alphabet test (reciting the alphabet without singing or rhyming), Tiger responded, “Yes, recite entire national anthem backwards.” After the officer explained the instructions several times, he was able to complete the task.

Woods was taken into custody where he took a breathalyzer test and blew zeroes.


The report notes that Woods was "cooperative,” but described him as “sluggish, sleepy, unable to walk alone.”

Tiger released a statement, saying, “I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.”

According to TMZ, medications listed on the report include Solarex, Vicodin, Torix and Vioxx with a note that he had not taken Vioxx this year.

Tiger is due in court in July.
