Tiger Woods DUI Caused By Prescription Drugs, Not Alcohol

Tiger Woods Was Asleep at the Wheel and Totally Incoherent, According to Police Report

Tiger Woods was found asleep at the wheel before his arrest but police records support his claim he had not been drinking alcohol. "I feel bad for Tiger", Nicklaus told reporters at a news conference for The Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio. This comes as Woods has been notorious for being relatively private about his life and what influences him golf game. He needs our help. And we wish him well.

"What you are witnessing right now before your very eyes is not just an individual who has fallen from grace, it's an individual that finds it very hard to look himself in the mirror, because he knows he got busted by the entire world for being the liar and the phony that he was at that particular moment in time", Smith said.

"I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions", he said.

Woods was arrested about 3 a.m. Monday, Jupiter police spokeswoman Kristin Rightler said.

Tiger Woods was asleep at the wheel but had no alcohol in his system when officers spotted his vehicle stopped along a Florida road, according to a police affidavit that knocked down earlier reports his breath smelled of alcohol.

"But I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again".

A police report lists four medications, including Vicodin, that Tiger Woods reported taking when he was stopped for DUI.

Mark Steinberg, Woods's longtime agent, would not say Monday evening whether the mix of medications Woods cited was related to his back problems.

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. Torix and Vioxx are anti-inflammatory medications; Vicodin a painkiller.

Police discovered Woods buckled into his 2015 auto, which was running with the brake lights and right turn signal flashing, on Military Trail south of Indian Creek Parkway. "Woods had extremely slow and slurred speech".

"Both drivers' side tires were flat along with minor damage to both respective rims", a responding officer said in his eyewitness account.

"I fully co-operated 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".

The expert adds that if Woods decides to fight the charge, a major factor in the case would be the amount of drugs in his system at the time of the incident. Woods tried to tie his shoes by placing his foot on the grill of the cruiser and almost lost his balance, and eventually he just took them off.

Woods was handcuffed and taken to a police station for breath tests.

He is scheduled to be arraigned July 5. He would be released without bond and under his own power at 10:50 am. He was alone in the vehicle. His career has recently been set back by physical injuries, and he has not won a major title since June 2008.
