Tiger Woods found asleep in stationery vehicle

Tiger Woods' Mercedes showed signs of "fresh damage" as officers arrested him for driving under the influence in Florida on Monday morning, RadarOnline.com has learned.

It was unclear what medications, exactly, Woods was taking at the time, though the athlete has a well-documented back injury and said he takes "several prescriptions".

He said he understands the severity of the incident and takes full responsibility.

Mark Steinberg, Woods's longtime agent, would not say Monday evening whether the mix of medications Woods cited was related to his back problems.

Woods announced last week that he had undergone a fourth back surgery in April that will keep him off the course for the rest of the 2017 season, and he is unlikely to engage in strenuous physical activity for months. Other medicines, including over-the-counter allergy medicine or anti-anxiety medicines, can also cause drowsiness and include warnings about driving. I asked Woods if he had anything to drink to which he stated no, I then asked him again if he was sure to and he stated he had nothing to drink. By 2008, he'd won the Masters four times, four PGA Championships, three U.S. Opens, and three British Opens. The auto was still running.

The once-great Tiger Woods was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence early Monday morning at the age of 41.

However contrary to reports on Monday which said Woods refused a breathalyzer test, the golfer agreed and "blew zeroes" indicating there was no alcohol in his system. The report also notes that Woods did not know where he was and asked how far from his house he was using "extremely slow, slurred, mumbled, confused" speech.

The arrest and a police mug shot showing a disheveled looking Woods raised speculation that his multimillion dollar contracts for product endorsements could be jeopardized.

The 14-time major champion and victor of 79 PGA Tour titles has not played since he withdrew from the Dubai Desert Classic on February 3 after an opening-round 73.

One man who did sit down with Woods recently was Nicklaus, the Memorial founder and host. "I've been there myself".

A witness, who wasn't identified in the report, told the trooper he had been drinking alcohol earlier. An officer listed them as "soloxex", "vicodin", "torix" and "viox", the latter of which he had not taken this year. He didn't follow the light with his eyes, sometimes just closing them, and he "was not following directions to place his feet together with his heel touching and toes touching", the report said.
