The 41-year-old was found early Monday asleep in his Mercedes, which was stopped in the right lane of a road. The engine was running, the blinker was on and the car had two flat tires along with some other damage, CBS 12 in West Palm Beach reported.
The newly released police video shows Woods being cooperative but having difficulty following instructions and showing signs of confusion:
In the video, Woods tells police he had not been drinking, which was confirmed by a Breathalyzer test. However, the golfer released a statement saying he was on prescribed medication and having an “unexpected reaction.”
Woods apologized to his family, friends and fans, thanked police and vowed to “do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again.”
The golfer is widely considered one of the greatest to ever swing a club, but his career has been derailed in recent years by a series of injuries as well as some well-publicized personal problems, including a divorce.
He had a fourth back surgery in April, which ESPN reports will keep him out of golf for the rest of the year.
Woods has a court appearance scheduled for July 5.
