More details have emerged from Woods’ arrest today.
Tiger Woods said in a statement on Monday that alcohol was not involved in his DUI arrest. The 41-year-old golfer said it was a result of the medication he was taking following his back surgery.
Police reports that have come out today seem to have confirmed Woods’ claim.
Woods, according to police, took two breathalizer tests and blew .000 on both of them. He also told the officer that he was taking Solarex, Vicodin, Torix and Vioxx, the last of which the officer said was “not taken this year.”
He did fail the field sobriety test, per the police report, which read:
“Could not maintain starting position. Missed heel to toe each time. Stepped off line several times. Used arms for balance. Did not return. Explained instructions and again did not maintain starting position, stepped of line, used arms for balance, also stopped walking to steady self.”
The 14-time Major champion hasn’t played competitively since February due to back problems and had surgery in April.
Woods had recently said that he hadn’t felt this good in years thanks to his back surgery.
