Legendary golfer Tiger Woods was arrested for Driving Under the Influence in Florida on Memorial Day, police told.
Woods, a Jupiter resident, was taken into custody at 3 a.m. Monday, according to WPTV. The golfer was booked into a district prison under his birth appoint Eldrick Woods, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office’s website.
Woods, 41, was tasked with DUI and exhausted on his own recognizance about 10:50 a.m. It’s uncertain if Woods was tested for medicines or alcohol.
The golfer has been living on Jupiter Island since 2006 after to purchase a $40 million property there, The New York Times reported.
Woods has won 14 major tournaments and ranks second with his 79 job victories on the PGA Tour.
He shot 40 on his opening nine in his first major championship as a pro and still triumphed by 12 strokes. He averaged 25 grounds longer off the tee than the next closest participate, blowing by bunkers and shooting projectiles into the roly-poly commons with shorter cast-irons and from angles nobody is had even considered. He stimulated everything inside 8 feet.
His attempts to jump-start his busines again after being derailed by chronic injuries has been unsuccessful. He has not played for four months and is out for the rest of the season while he recovers from his fourth back surgery.
In an update Friday on his website, Woods said last month’s surgery to fuse saucers in his lower back provided instant succour and he hasn’t “felt this good in years.”
Woods’ first major scandal happened the day after Thanksgiving in 2009 when he was injured in a vehicle disintegrate in front of his Orlando, Florida home. Days subsequently, reports surfaced that Woods chiselled on his then-wife Elin Nordegren with dozens of the status of women during their five-year matrimony. The couple got divorced in 2010.
