Tiger Woods arrested on DUI charge
Ross Kinnaird/Getty Golfer Tiger Woods was arrested early Monday morning in Florida and charged with driving under the influence, according to the local NBC station WPTV and other media reports.
Woods, a resident of Jupiter Island, Florida, was arrested at 3 a.m.
In a statement Monday night, Woods said that "alcohol was not involved" and that his arrest was due to an "unexpected reaction to prescribed medications."
Woods apologized in the statement, and he also thanked the authorities involved in his arrest for their professionalism.
Citing Palm Beach County Jail records, WPTV reported that Woods, 41, was released from custody at 10:50 a.m. on Monday.
Woods had back surgery in April, his fourth in four years. Woods last week said he was optimistic about his recovery.
"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," Woods wrote on his website. "It was instant nerve relief. I haven't felt this good in years."
Woods' season came to an abrupt halt in February, when he withdrew from a tournament in Dubai after the first round.
"I expect more from myself too," Woods said of his arrest.
