Tiger Woods seen confused, stumbling in arrest video
JUPITER, Florida (AP):
His speech slow and slurred, Tiger Woods couldn't follow simple instructions or keep his balance during a dazed and disoriented encounter with police before he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.
The video images came from dashcam footage that Jupiter police released on Wednesday night, and they show Woods with little capacity to stand still without swaying, repeat simple instruction or put one foot in front of the other.
The footage came from his arrest on Monday in the dark of early morning when Jupiter police noticed his Mercedes parked on the side of a six-lane road, part of it in the road and part of it in the bicycle lane.
Police found the Woods sound asleep behind the wheel, according to an incident report. The engine was running, the brake lights were on, and the right turn signal was blinking. Police also released photos of his car that showed both tires flat and minor damage around the bumpers.
When the officer asks Woods where he had been, the 14-time major champion says, "LA." He says he was headed down to Orange County.
The video, more than an hour long, starts with Jupiter police approaching Woods' car and ends with the cruiser pulling into the Palm Beach County jail, with Woods in handcuffs behind his back and sitting in the back seat.
Woods told the officers he had not been drinking, and two breath tests at the jail registered a 0.0 blood-alcohol level. Woods issued a statement nearly 10 hours after he was released from jail on Monday that alcohol was not involved.
