Tiger Woods Issues Statement After Arrested for DUI in Jupiter, Fl
Tiger Woods was arrested for DUI on Monday after he was pulled in Palm Beach. He was taken to Palm Beach County Jail 3 AM.
The pro golfer, 41, was charged with DUI and released on his own recognizance about 10:50 a.m.
According to sources… Officers with the Jupiter Florida Police Department spotted at 2015 Mercedes “driving erratically, all over the road.” They pulled the car driven by Tiger over.
Officer’s reportedly smelled alcohol on Woods’ breath and at that point Woods became “arrogant.” We’re told the officer asked him to blow into a breathalyzer but he refused. In Florida that means automatic arrest and license suspension.
UPDATE: Woods, who has been living on Jupiter Island since 2006 after buying a $40 million estate issued a statement in which he said….
“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions. 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 affected me so strongly.”
Woods goes on … “I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends, and the fans. I expect more from myself, too. I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again.
I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Dept. and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office for their professionalism.”
Woods’ first major scandal happened the day after Thanksgiving in 2009 when he was injured in a car crash in front of his Orlando, Florida home. Days later, reports surfaced that Woods cheated on his then-wife Elin Nordegren with dozens of women during their five-year marriage. The couple got divorced in 2010. Read more here
