Tiger Woods arrested in Florida for driving under influence


Jack Nicklaus voiced his concern for Tiger Woods on Tuesday, saying the 14-time major victor "needs our help" after he was arrested for DUI early Monday morning. That Woods was a new and improved human being since his extramarital sex scandal from hell, a better father and friend, with or without golf in his life.

Jack Nicklaus says he feels bad for Tiger Woods and called him a friend who needs "all our help". He also takes full responsibility for his actions.

Then, he said he didn't know where he was or how far away he was from his home in Jupiter Island.

In a statement to CNN and other media outlets, Woods, rehabbing from back surgery, said he did not realize the mix of medications "had affected me so strongly". I hope he gets out of it and I hope he plays golf again. His vehicle was still running when approached by police, and he struggled to walk in a straight line, but breathalyser tests did not detect any alcohol.

Woods has undergone four separate surgeries on his back since 2014, with the most recent procedure taking place in late April.

An officer listed the medications Woods said he was taking as "soloxex", "vicodin", "torix" and "viox". Vicodin is an opioid pain medication.

New information has been released on Tiger Woods' arrest from early Monday morning. This Woods was found asleep in his damaged Mercedes in the dead of night, with his brake lights on, his right blinker flashing, his bumpers banged up, and his two driver-side tires flat. "Woods had extremely slow and slurred speech".

According to an incident report, police described fresh damage to the driver's side of the auto - both tires were flat, along with minor damage to the rims.

The true purposes of Memorial Day
It was not until after World War I, however, that the day was expanded to honor those who have died in all American wars. The courageous souls who gave their lives in all of America's wars preserved for us the right to do just that.

According to Jupiter Police Department documents obtained by Radar, the 41-year-old's pricy vehicle seemed to bear the brunt of his wild drive.

In an attempt to tie his shoe, Woods placed his foot on the patrol auto and "nearly lost his balance".

After failing all the roadside sobriety tests, Woods was handcuffed and taken to jail. He would be released without bond and under his own power at 10:50 am.

Woods is set to make his first court appearance July 5, according to records released Tuesday. Asked if he understood directions to recite the alphabet backward, he said, "Yes, recite entire national anthem backward". He was alone in the vehicle.

Last week, he wrote on his website that the fusion surgery had given him instant relief from pain - and said he hadn't felt so good for years.

The arrest is the latest gloomy episode to hit the 14-time major victor, who once towered over his sport before being engulfed by turmoil in his private life and a series of debilitating injuries.

A 79-time victor on the PGA Tour who was world number one for a record 683 weeks, Woods lost form in recent years due to injuries and the mastering of a new swing while his ranking has plummeted to 876 after his long spell on the sidelines.
