According to recently released court records, the golfer was asleep at the wheel and had to be woken up when police in South Florida busted him early Memorial Day. Woods scored .000 on two breathalyzer tests given to him after he was discovered by Jupiter police, however, he was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and cited for “improper stopping, standing, or parking in an illegal place.”
Court documents noted that Woods had apparently used four medications for four left knee surgeries and four achilles injuries. He released a statement on Monday saying that he had not been drinking and was affected by an “unexpected reaction to prescribed medications.”
The officer, who found Tiger in his black Mercedes-Benz, stopped in a roadway with the car still running, told reporters that the golfer “had extremely slow and slurred speech.” The affidavit stated that “Woods stated that he did not know where he was. Woods had changed his story of where he was going and where he was coming from. [Woods] takes several prescriptions.”The sports legend is reportedly taking Vicodin, Torix, Vioxx and a few other prescriptions following his surgeries.
Tiger Woods is due in court in July.
