Tiger Woods Arrested for DUI

Tiger Woods’ long weekend isn’t going to be a good one.

The golfer was arrested early Monday morning (May 29, 2017) in Jupiter, Fla., for driving under the influence of alcohol. The 41-year-old was pulled over in his 2015 Mercedes around 3 a.m. and taken into custody, NBC Miami reports.

According to the Palm Beach County’s jail records, Woods was booked around 7:18 a.m. before he was released on his own recognizance with no bond at 10:50 a.m. The documents also claimed the athlete had an unlawful blood alcohol level at the time of his booking.

Just days before the arrest, Woods wrote on his website he hasn’t “felt this good in years” following an April fusion surgery on his back. “[The surgery gave me] instant nerve relief,” he shared. “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.”

Woods previously crashed his car on Thanksgiving 2009 during an argument with then-wife Elin Nordegren. He was reportedly under the influence of Ambien, though he was not charged with a DUI for the incident.

“This situation is my fault, and it’s obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I’m human and I’m not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn’t happen again,” Woods said in a statement at the time.
