Dashcam footage and audio from the arrest are expected to be released by police on Wednesday.

Tests administered to Woods suggests he was not under the influence of alcohol at the time of his arrest.

A breathalyzer test on Woods registered a score of.000.

Along with the DUI, Woods was also cited for improper stopping, standing, or parking in an illegal place. "The vehicle was running and the brake lights were illuminated as well as the right blinker flashing".

The probable cause affidavit says Woods' speech was "extremely slow and slurred".

The American subsequently had spinal fusion surgery on April 20, a fourth operation in three years on his troublesome back, which has limited him to three tournament starts worldwide in two years.

Woods was driving a 2015 black Mercedes-Benz when he was taken into custody at 3 a.m. on Military Trail south of Indian Creek Parkway. "I expect more from myself too", Woods said in a statement issued late Monday.

Asked if he would like to comment on Woods, Nicklaus initially joked: "No, not really".

Nike, which signed Woods in 1996, had previously backed the 14-time major victor following his 2009 sex scandal, while other sponsors such as Gatorade and AT&T dropped him. That was also after he said he understood the directions to be "recite the national anthem backwards".

However, he then voiced honest support and concern while acknowledging he does not know much about Woods latest episode.

Woods is set to make his first court appearance July 5, according to records released Tuesday.

Rist said Woods needs support at a time like this.

In a statement, Woods said his arrest came after an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medication. I didn't realise the mix of medications had affected me so strongly, ' he said.

The famous golf player was held for almost six hours; Palm Beach Country Jail revealed he was released at 10.50am local time.

A police mugshot of Woods looking bleary-eyed and unshaven rapidly went viral after its release on Monday, underscoring the fall from grace of the superstar athlete once renowned as a clean-living, corporate pitchman.
