Tiger Woods Arrested On DUI Charge In Florida


Tiger Woods was arrested around 3 AM Eastern time Monday morning in Jupiter, Florida on suspicion of driving under the influence. Jupiter police booked the golf legend in a local jail at 7:15 AM, and Woods was released on his own recognizance at 10:50 AM.

Tiger, now 41, hasn’t played professionally since he withdrew from a February tournament in Dubai after shooting a first-round 77. On April 19, he had his fourth back surgery since 2014 and still doesn’t have full range of motion on his swing.

Still, the 14-time major champion recently said on his website that he has no plans to retire. He’s taking rehab one step at a time.

“I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again. Presently, I’m not looking ahead. I can’t twist for another two and a half to three months. Right now, my sole focus is rehab and doing what the doctors tell me. I am concentrating on short-term goals.” – Tiger Woods

This is not Tiger’s first run-in with the law. In 2009, police were called after he crashed his car into a tree during a domestic dispute with his then-wife Elin Nordegren. In that instance, Woods allegedly drove under the influence of Ambien. No details¬†have been released with regard to specific intoxicants in Tiger’s system at the time of his arrest Monday morning.
