Florida police has released the arrest video of golf superstar Tiger Woods in which he looks disoriented and unsteady. The golfer was arrested on Monday on a charge of driving under the influence.
The video, from a dashboard camera in the vehicle of Jupiter, Florida, police officers, shows Woods unable to tie his shoe and wobbling as he tries to walk along a straight line in a field sobriety test.
Woods has blamed the DUI arrest near his home on an adverse reaction to prescription medication.
He was discovered by police asleep in his car in the right lane of a road, his right turn indicator blinking and the motor running.
Both tires on the driver’s side of Woods’s Mercedes were flat at the time of his arrest, and there was damage to the front and rear bumpers.
Woods told police he was taking several prescriptions, including two painkillers. His breathalyzer test showed no sign of alcohol.
“I understand the severity of what I did, and I take full responsibility for my actions,” Woods said in his statement on the incident.
“I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.”
