Tiger Woods Struggles with Breathalyzer Test in New Video
A new video shows Tiger Woods at the Palm Beach County Jail, struggling to take a Breathalyzer test.
In the video, the golfer looks like he is having a hard time staying awake.
He then seems confused as the deputy gives him the instructions for the test. She has to tell him, “Blow. Out. Blow out. Don't suck it, blow out.”
According to a police report obtained by “Extra,” an officer found Woods asleep at the wheel of his 2015 Mercedes just after 2 a.m. on Monday. 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.”
