New details surrounding Tiger Woods' Memorial Day DUI arrest emerged on Tuesday.
According to the police report, it appears Woods was truthful in his initial comments that alcohol did not play a role in the incident, as the report indicates that the golfer was not under the influence to alcohol. Woods maintained that the situation stemmed from an adverse reaction to prescribed medication
The more concerning revelation is that Woods was allegedly found passed out at the wheel, oblivious to where he was. This is frightening and dangerous, and provides reason to be thankful to the arresting officers that got him off the road where he is not a danger to himself or others.
Eldrick Woods, 41, blamed the confusion on “an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications.” His breathalyzer test was negative, indicating the Jupiter Island resident was not under the influence of alcohol when police stopped him on Military Trail south of Indian Creek Parkway, near Dakota Drive and Jupiter Middle School.
Police had to wake up Woods, who was buckled in the driver’s seat of the Mercedes-Benz. The car was running, the brake lights were on, and the right blinker was flashing, according to police records.
