UPDATE: The official story has now been revealed. According to the police report released Tuesday, an officer approached Tiger Woods’s car and he was asleep at the wheel. His black Mercedes was stopped in the right lane, car running with its right blinker flashing.
Woods said in a statement that he suffered an “unexpected reaction to prescribed medications” and no alcohol was involved. His breathalyzer test was negative for alcohol, a .000, but he failed the sobriety test. He didn’t know where he was or how far away from his house he ended up. He also stumbled through the walking test, missing heel to toe several times, and struggled with the one-leg stand and finger to nose tests. He was on several medications, including Vicodin, a pain reliever.
C’mon Tiger?! If we got Uber, we KNOW you can afford a designated driver. Why must you get caught, again, driving, or should we say “allegedly driving,” under the influence?
Tiger Woods is NOT having a great day. He was arrested on DUI charges in Jupiter, Florida. The cops stopped him early Monday morning for “driving erratically.” As reported by TMZ, the officer smelled alcohol on his breath and he got “arrogant.”
Tiger must’ve forgotten “driving while Black” rule #1, when stopped by the police, say few words and say them politely and you might make it home that night.
The officer then asked him to blow into a breathalyzer and he refused, meaning automatic arrest and license suspension in the state of Florida. All of this feels eerily familiar, throwback to the 2009 when Tiger Woods and then wife Elin Nordegren got into their epic blowout after he hit a tree while allegedly driving under the influence of Ambien.
Stay strong Tiger!
