#TigerWoods- NO Alcohol on breath test- found ASLEEP at wheel during time of arrest! [details]



There is MORE news coming out surrounding Tiger Woods' recent arrest!


The police had to wake up Tiger Woods when they approached his running vehicle prior to arresting him on a DUI charge early Monday morning, according to a police report.



According to the report, the officer said Woods "had extremely slow and slurred speech" and struggled with several roadside tasks. The report noted that the golfer changed his story about where he was going and where he was coming from, originally saying that he was coming from "L.A." and on his way to "Orange County" before stating that he had no idea where he was. Woods was arrested in Jupiter, Florida.


Woods told police he was taking several prescriptions, including two painkillers. Police said Woods was "cooperative as much as possible" and that he agreed to take a breath test and a urine test. He blew a 0.00 in the breath test.

According to a more detailed police report issued Tuesday afternoon, both tires on the driver's side of Woods' car were flat at the time of his arrest and there was damage to the front and rear bumpers.

In a statement released Monday night, Woods had said alcohol was not a factor in his arrest, which he said stemmed from an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medication.

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

The 14-time major champion was taken into custody at 2:49 a.m. ET on Monday, booked at 7:18 a.m. and released on his own recognizance at 10:50 a.m.

Woods' arraignment in Palm Beach County court is scheduled for July 5.

Nike told ESPN's Darren Rovell that its relationship with Tiger has not changed despite his arrest.

Woods announced last week that he had undergone a fourth back surgery in April that will keep him off the course for the rest of the 2017 season, and he is unlikely to engage in strenuous physical activity for months.

He attempted a comeback after more than a year away from the game late in 2016 but played in just three tournaments, missing the cut in January at the Farmers Insurance Open and withdrawing after one round of a tournament in Dubai in February.

Since his first back surgery on March 31, 2014, Woods has played just 19 worldwide events, with a single top-10 finish, seven missed cuts and three withdrawals.

Information from ESPN's Bob Harig and The Associated Press was used in this report.
