Tiger Woods was found asleep at wheel, no alcohol found in system

Authorities found Tiger Woods asleep at the wheel, with the car running before his DUI arrested in Florida, according to a police report.

The golf icon “had slow, sluggish and very slurred speech” and was “unable to walk alone,” however, he blew a 0.00 in a breath test for alcohol.

Woods, 41, was arrested around 3 a.m. Monday and reportedly struggled to walk in a straight line and couldn’t stand on one leg, the report adds. He did, however, successfully recite the the alphabet backwards.

He initially told cops that he was returning from a golf trip in Los Angeles before admitting that he took several prescription drugs including Vicodin.

Woods has since released a statement claiming the incident was a result of an “unexpected reaction” to prescription drugs.

“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions,” Woods said. “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.”
