Woods talks to officers in video; vehicle had fresh damage

As previously reported, Woods was arrested on May 29, 2017 outside of Jupiter, Fla., on suspicion of driving under the influence after he was allegedly caught asleep at the wheel.

Woods once seemed like a sure bet to surpass him, but he remains second with 14 and has not won a major title since the 2008 U.S. Open.

The brake lights of Woods' 2015 Mercedes-Benz AMG 65 are lit and the right turn signal is blinking.

Another video of the initial traffic stop shows the view from an officer's vehicle as he pulls up to Woods' auto, which is nearly halfway out of the right lane, sticking into a bike lane.

When asked where he was coming from, Woods said, according to USA Today, "Jupiter", but when asked again he said, "LA".

Woods, who recently had his fourth back surgery, is also heard telling the officers he has screws in his knee when they asked if he had anything that would poke them during a search.

On Wednesday, commissioner Jay Monahan said the PGA Tour would be there to help Woods.

After his release from police custody, Woods released a statement alleging that his unfortunate condition was the result of an unexpected reaction to medication.

The final piece of the puzzle, of course, is to try and lock users further into Apple's ecosystem of products and services. Apple's Siri Speaker (an unofficial name) would have surround sound, integration with Apple devices, and no touch screen.

Stepping backwards slightly, Woods replies, "What, uh, what, uh, what are we doing?"

Tests corroborated Woods' claim that he did not have alcohol in his system and during the video he is seen to explain that the only drugs he has taken are those he is prescribed.

"I do not know", Woods answered. A source told TMZ she said "I knew it, I knew it", when she got the call, and began to cry.

This was corroborated by the police tests despite officers describing his state as confused and his speech as "slow, mumbled and slurred". Woods was taken to jail and subsequently released on his own recognizance.

Woods was discovered by police asleep at the wheel of his Mercedes on the side of a six lane road.

"I understand the severity of what I did, and I take full responsibility for my actions", Woods' statement read.

The golfer had fusion surgery on his lower back last month and has not competed in four months.
