In the wee hours of Monday morning, golf icon Tiger Woods was arrested for driving under the influence.

The incident took place around 3 a.m. in the town of Jupiter, Florida, and immediately after the news broke, along with a concerning mugshot, it was suggested that Woods had been arrested for an alcohol-related incident.

However, it was later reported the longtime golf star passed two breathalyzer tests, CNN reports. Woods also released a statement that said he was not drinking and driving.

Woods did admit that he had taken a large quantity of prescription medication, including Soloxex, Vicodin, Torix and Vioxx, which is why police officers found him asleep on the side of the road.

While Woods passed a breathalyzer, he failed a number of field sobriety tests, according to police reports.

Now, dash cam footage from the Monday morning arrest has been released, and it clearly shows how out of it Woods really was.

He is shown being unable to walk in a straight line:

He also admitted that he had no idea where he physically was.

At one point, Woods is unable to comply with the officer's orders when he is asked to close his eyes and tilt his head back. He is then shown wobbling on the side of the road as he mumbles to himself.

When Woods is brought to the hood of the squad car, his eyes are closed as he attempts to respond to the officer's questions:


After nearly 30 minutes of questioning, Woods was put in handcuffs and taken away.

Woods has since released a statement saying, “I understand the severity of what I did, and I take full responsibility for my actions,” reports CNN.

CNN also reports that he recently underwent back surgery, which could explain the high dosage of drugs.
