Tiger Woods says prescription medication led to DUI arrest in Jupiter

By Scott Sutton,

Golfer Tiger Woods was found asleep at the wheel, had to be awakened and was charged with driving under the influence early Monday morning in Jupiter, according to police. Woods said later in a written statement that prescribed medications contributed to the arrest.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Woods said he was coming home from California and he did not know where he was. He “had changed his story of where he was going and where he was coming from,” a DUI probable cause affidavit noted. He also asked how far he was from his house, the affidavit stated.

He was wearing his seat belt, his vehicle was running, the brake lights were on and the right blinker was flashing, according to the police report. His attitude was described as cooperative and confused and his speech extremely slow and slurred.
