Golf star Tiger Woods was arrested around 3 AM today on suspicion of driving under the influence in Jupiter, Florida, Jupiter police spokeswoman Kristin Rightler said. Woods has a home on Jupiter Island.
Woods was booked into a local jail and released with no bond a few hours later. It’s not clear whether Woods was alone or whether he tested positive for alcohol or drugs.
The 41-year-old Woods has undergone multiple back surgeries and hasn’t played competitive golf since he was forced to pull out of the Dubai Desert Classic in February.
His most recent operation –his fourth since 2014– was just more than a month ago when he underwent fusion surgery on his back. Woods said in a blog post published Wednesday that
““it was instant nerve relief.
I haven’t felt this good in years.“
This is not Woods’ first high-profile mishap either. In 2009, the golfer was taken to a hospital after he was injured in a car accident in front of his Orlando, Florida, home. The episode erupted into a scandal when it became public that Woods had been unfaithful to his then-wife, Elin Nordegren.
Woods and Nordegren were divorced in 2010. (via CNN)
