Original Post:

Golfer Tiger Woods had to be woken up on the morning of his arrest for DUI, according to the police report from Jupiter Police.

Police also found his black Mercedes stopped in the roadway in the right hand lane with the engine running, brake lights illuminated and the right blinker flashing.

The officer said Woods was the only one in the car. He was in the driver's seat with his seat belt on. The officer found him to be "cooperative, confused" and with "slow and slurred" speech, according to the report.

However, the officer wrote in the report there were no "odors," according to police.

Tiger, according to police, took two breathalyzer tests and registered a .000 on each one.

Woods told the officer he just came from golfing in Los Angeles. He said he didn't know where he was, according to the report. The officer wrote in the report that Woods changed his story several times as to where he was going and where he was coming from, noting that Woods was going south away from Hobe Sound and that he takes several prescriptions.

Court documents also show Tiger received a citation for improper parking. The citation said the officer found the golfer's car stopped on the roadway in the right hand lane and right shoulder near 2999 Military Trail, just south of Indian Creek Parkway in Jupiter.

Jupiter Police arrested Woods around 3 a.m. on Monday. He was out of jail seven hours later.

Tiger issued an apology Monday evening on Instagram:

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.

According to the citation issued to Tiger, he's due back in court at the North County Government Center on PGA Boulevard on July 5.
