Police release Tiger Woods' DUI arrest video

In the dash cam video footage, Woods can be seen on the side of a road as police direct him through a field sobriety test.

Patrolling police found his 2015 Mercedes AMG at the side of the road with its engine running and the indicators flashing in the early hours of Monday. His auto showed signs of "fresh damage" on the driver's side of the vehicle, according to the records.

Woods also is asked to say the alphabet from A to Z in a slow non-rhythmic manner.

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

Woods, 41, said in a statement on Monday that his DUI arrest was the result of "the unexpected reaction to prescribed medications".

Woods, who is recovering from back surgery, apologised and said he took "full responsibility" after spending almost four hours in jail.

"I didn't realise the mix of medications had affected me so strongly". He took a Breathalyzer test, registering 0.000 on it both times, and a urine test, records show.

Woods, who was also cited for improper stopping, standing or parking, is scheduled to be arraigned on July 5. His vehicle was found in the middle of a roadway - shown in the video above - approximately eight miles from his Florida home, and a police report revealed that "Woods was asleep at the wheel and had to be woken up".

"You can overcome a DUI if you are a big enough star and you keep winning", said Bob Dorfman, creative director of Baker Street Advertising in San Francisco. He was described as being "confused" but also "cooperative" in the police report.

"It has to affect your normal faculties", he said. Defendants typically do not lose their driver's license.

Any punishment from the PGA Tour is not made public.

Woods had undergone a back operation for the fourth time on 20 April.

Day credits Woods' 79 PGA Tour career victories with inspiring the him to world No.1.

That was the least of players' concerns at Muirfield Village. "And once again, I'm hoping that his health comes back and he can get back out on the golf course".

"I don't know all the details about it, but hopefully it's not a worse problem than it is", former Masters champion Adam Scott said.

"I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions", he said. "Hopefully, he's on the right dosage and he can get through this stage and hopefully come back".
