The Jupiter, Florida Police Department released dash cam footage late Wednesday of the field sobriety test officers gave golfing great Tiger Woods, which resulted in his arrest Monday morning for suspicion of driving while intoxicated. In the video, Woods appears to be exhausted, confused and having difficulties complying with the police officers' orders as they were trying to conduct a sobriety test. He later took three Breathalyzer tests that both registered 0.00, indicating he had no alcohol in his system.

In a statement after his arrest Monday - before the video surfaced - Woods said alcohol was not involved, blaming his disorientation on "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications".

Woods released a statement on Monday night where he said he took "full responsibility for his actions".

"I'm following the light", Woods says, his words running together. Tiger Woods attributed an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medicine for his arrest on a DUI charge that landed him in a Florida jail Monday for almost four hours.

Woods, who has been rehabbing from back surgery, said he didn't realize the mix of medications would affect him so strongly.

An affidavit and an incident report from the four officers at the scene were released a day after Woods spent almost four hours in the Palm Beach County jail.

As of May 20 this year, the U.S. counted 838 investment projects worth over 10.2 billion United States dollars in Vietnam. He pledged continued domestic economic reform, and said Vietnamese companies would be encouraged to invest in the US.


At one point the officer asks him, "Are you alright?" then tells him he can do the tests without shoes.

Woods is second on the all-time list with 14 major titles but a player whose famous fist pump and beaming smile were once a regular site on the PGA Tour has lost his form and barely played in recent years.

"He's a member of our family, and we're going to do everything we can to help and support him", he said. However, he hasn't won a tournament since 2013 and has not won a major since the 2008 U.S. Open.

Just last week he wrote in his blog, "It has been just over a month since I underwent fusion surgery on my back, and it is hard to express how much better I feel".

When a police officer woke him, Woods was so disoriented that he initially said he had just returned from playing golf in Los Angeles.

On 97.5 FM The Fanatic Philadelphia (h/t TMZ Sports), Barkley said Woods' "haters " are "in heaven right now because they get a chance to dump on the guy".
