Police have released dash cam video of Tiger Woods’ DUI arrest and the video is very uncomfortable to watch.
In the footage, you see the professional golfer following police orders as he’s being given a series of field sobriety tests.
“You aren’t even following the light,” one officer said during a test waving a flashlight in front of Tiger’s eyes.
After then asking a series of random questions, the officer then tells Tiger to close his eyes, tilt his head backwards and recite the English alphabet without singing. (To be quite frank, this wouldn’t be easy sober. But we digress.)
Either way, Woods didn’t quite understand the order because when asked to repeat the instructions he said, “not to sing the National Anthem backwards.” Not quite. Eventually, the 41-year-old was able to recite the alphabet in a nonrhythmic manner — but his head was down.
Tiger was arrested on Monday morning in Jupiter, Florida, for suspicion of driving under the influence. Prior to the arrest, police found the athlete asleep behind the wheel of his parked car.
Woods later revealed in a public statement that alcohol had nothing to do with his DUI. “What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly,” he said.
The statement was later validated after learning he blew all zeros on his breath test.
