Woods had "extremely slow and slurred speech" after being awoken by a police officer, who found the auto the golfer was driving stopped in the right lane of the roadway and still running.
Published online by the Palm Beach County Court Clerk, the report also shows that officers found Woods" speech "slow, sluggish, and very slurred", while his attitude was "sleepy'. The report added that Woods told the officer he "takes several prescriptions", which he had mentioned in his statement Monday evening.
"I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved", Woods said in a statement. He claimed yesterday that while he had not been drinking, he had an adverse reaction to some prescription meds he was taking.
He was released from Palm Beach County jail at 10:30 local time. The incident occurred less than a week after Woods expressed optimism about his future following back surgery, saying on his website that he experienced "instant relief" and had not "felt this good in years". I asked Woods if he had anything to drink to which he stated no, I then asked him again if he was sure to and he stated he had nothing to drink.
Woods, a 14-time major champion who ranks No. 2 in PGA Tour history with 79 victories, has not played golf for four months.
People have been surprisingly supportive of the golfer's situation, tweeting out their beliefs at the unfair treatment that he has received as a result of this occurrence. Police say golf great Tiger Woods has been.
Woods' current sponsors, including Nike Inc, Bridgestone Corp 5108.T , Hero, Kowa, TaylorMade and Monster Energy, did not immediately comment on Tuesday.
And the veteran has issued a plea for everyone involved in the sport to come together and help Woods in his hour of need.
