Tiger Woods Allegedly Asleep At The Wheel At Time Of Arrest

Police say Tiger Woods was asleep at the wheel when he was found in his car.

Police have released new information from the arrest of Tiger Woods.

The 41-year-old golfer, who claims that alcohol was not involved in his DUI arrest, was allegedly asleep at the wheel when he was found by police. Police say that Woods was buckled in the driver's seat of his car, which was running with the brake lights on and the right blinker flashing.

Woods was found by police on Military Trail south of Indian Creek Parkway, near Dakota Drive and Jupiter Middle School.

The 14-time Major champion was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and cited for improper stopping, standing or parking in an illegal place.

Woods says that what happened was a result of "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.” He had back surgery in April and has since been recovering.

Here's the full police affidavit, which states that Woods claims he was coming back from California and that he didn't know where he was at the time of his arrest.

More details from his arrest, including potential police cam footage, are expected to come out today.
