Tiger Woods Arrested for DUI in Florida: Police
Tiger Woods was arrested early Monday.
Golfing great Tiger Woods was arrested in Florida early Monday on suspicion of driving under the influence, according to jail records.
Jupiter Police say an officer pulled the golfer over at about 3 a.m.
He was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail and booked at 7:18 a.m. before being released on his own recognizance at 10:50 a.m., according to online booking records.
Woods' rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Monday.
Woods has a home on Jupiter Island with its own golf course, spa, tennis court and 100-foot lap pool.
The golfing legend, who has won 14 majors between 1997 and 2008, has failed to play in any recent major tournaments after suffering a back injury, but he underwent surgery in April and has vowed to return to the sport.
"I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again," he said in a statement last week.
"Presently, I'm not looking ahead... Right now, my sole focus is rehab and doing what the doctors tell me. I am concentrating on short-term goals."
