According to the most recent report about his arrest from CNN, Woods's auto was on the side of the road not far from his Jupiter home, showing what appeared to be fresh damage on the driver's side. The result of the tests by police said he was unable to walk alone but that the breathalyzer test showed zero levels of alcohol.

Woods said an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medicine - not alcohol - was the reason for his arrest.

The 41-year-old golfer has insisted that an "unexpected reaction" to prescription drugs was why he was arrested in Florida on Monday morning.

In a statement, Woods said that he did not realise that the meds "had affected [him] so strongly".

Woods, a 14-time major victor, was released from jail on his own recognisance and is due in court on July 5, records show.

Cori Rist, one of Tiger Woods' many mistresses during his wild sexcapades in the late 2000s, told The Post on Monday that she feels sorry for the golfing legend after his DUI arrest in Florida.

He also told an officer he had taken a medication, but the name of the medication is redacted in the report.

Police said Woods "changed his story of where he was going and where he was coming from" and asked how far away from his house he was.

The cops report says, "It must be noted that Orange County California is to the south of LA California".

"I would like to apologise with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans". The golfer is now recovering from back surgery and is expected to be out at least five more months.

Police had to wake Woods up and he slurred his words. He then apologised to the public and pledged that the incident would never happen again.

Nicklaus added that he always figured his major championship record of 18 would be broken by Woods at some point in his career, before Woods fell into his injuries and issues outside of the course.

The officers arrested him on a DUI charge and improper stopping of his vehicle.
