(CNN) Tiger Woods was found asleep at the wheel the morning of his arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence, police records show. Jupiter, Florida, police discovered Woods early Monday on the side of the road, with his 2015 Mercedes-Benz running, its brake lights illuminated and right turn signal flashing, according to the arrest report released Tuesday. He was by himself and wearing his seat belt.
The report said that Woods had to be awakened and that his speech was slurred. Woods told police he was coming from golfing in Los Angeles and he didn’t know where he was, the document said. According to the report, he later changed his story and asked how far he was from his house. Woods has a home on Jupiter Island.
The report also said Woods also told police he “takes several prescriptions.”
Woods took a Breathalyzer test, registering a 0.000 on it, and a urine test, the report said. The report also noted that Woods was cooperative. On Monday, Woods said in a statement that alcohol was not involved and that he had “an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications.” In a statement to CNN and other media outlets, Woods, currently rehabbing from back surgery, said he did not realize the mix of medications “had affected me so strongly.” “I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions,” Woods said. Woods is set to make his first court appearance July 5, according to records released Tuesday.
