Playing New Footage Shows Tiger Woods Incoherent, Struggling to Blow into Breathalyzer After Arrest

A new police video from the night of Tiger Woods’ arrest in Florida shows the golfer mostly incoherent and swaying as he’s questioned by cops after he was found asleep behind the wheel of his car.

The video, which was released by the Jupiter Police Department Thursday night, shows Woods at the Palm Beach County jail following his arrest in the early hours of Monday.

In the footage, his speech is slurred as he states his name, along with his height, weight, hair and eye color for the officers.

He appears to have trouble with his breathalyzer test, apparently sucking air in when he was supposed to blow out.

After a few seconds, it’s revealed that he blew a 0.00 in the alcohol breath test.

He is then read his rights while seated with his hands cuffed behind his back.

“I can't unlock my two bracelets,” Woods says of the handcuffs.

"Don't worry," the officer responds. "We're going to take them off in a minute but you have to keep them on for right now."

The video ends as he says that he does not wish to speak with a lawyer when asked by officers.

Woods was arrested early Monday morning when officers came upon his 2015 Mercedes on the side of a busy street in Jupiter. The engine was still running and the vehicle had sustained damage on both bumpers, according to police.

On Wednesday night, police released dashcam video of the 14-time major champion taking a field sobriety test.

In that video, the golfer appears confused, first telling officers he was coming from L.A. and was on his way to Orange County before admitting he didn’t know where he was at all.

Woods, 41, was under the influence of prescription medication, telling officers he had taken two painkillers, Vicodin and Turix, and possibly an anti-depressant.

"I understand the severity of what I did and take full responsibility for my actions," Woods said in a statement following his release from jail. "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."

Rumors later circulated on social media that Woods was out partying with model Laci Kay Somers hours before his arrest, but she claims she was in Los Angeles at the time and was not with the golfer.

Woods has not played professionally in months while recovering from back injuries.
