Sporting News

A newly released video shows Tiger Woods taking a breathalyser test in the hours following his arrest early Monday on suspicion of driving under the influence.

In the footage, a handcuffed Woods is seen in a daze, struggling to remain seated while being booked in Palm Beach County Jail.

The 12-minute, 35-second clip goes on to detail Woods' interaction with a jail official administering the pair of breathalyzer tests, in which he recorded readings of .000.

A police officer found Woods asleep in his 2015 Mercedes around 3 a.m. Monday in Jupiter, Fla., according to the arrest report.

Woods, a resident of Jupiter Island, has not played professionally while recovering from back surgery in April, his fourth such procedure since 2014. In a statement Monday, the 14-time major champion blamed his impairment on an unexpected reaction to mixing prescription pain medication, insisting alcohol was not involved.

A probable cause affidavit showed that Woods' alcohol level had been recorded at zero in both the breathalyzer tests and a urine sample.

Woods, 41, is charged with driving under the influence of alcoholic beverages, chemical substances or controlled substances and was also cited for improper stopping, standing or parking in an illegal place. His arraignment hearing is July 5.
