[VIDEO] Tiger Woods DUI Dash Cam Video: Full Video Released By Jupiter PolicePosted: May 31, 2017
Jupiter police have released shocking video of Tiger Woods after they found him asleep in his Mercedes Benz with the engine running in the wee hours of Monday morning.
In more than an hour and a half of video, Tiger is seen swaying, rolling his eyes and falling asleep as police administer field sobriety tests before he was arrested for DUI and taken into police custody.
They have released photos of Woods’ bashed up $220,000. Mercedes Benz.
The 41-year-old golfer had to be woken up by an officer and stated that he did not know where he was after first claiming he had driven from California.
His speech was ‘extremely slow and slurred’ and he failed four field sobriety tests, although he blew .000 into a breathalyzer, suggesting he hadn’t been drinking alcohol.
The affidavit states that at 2:03am, Eldrick T. Woods was approached by a member of the Jupiter Police Department, who found him wearing his seat belt while sound asleep at the wheel of his $222,000 Mercedes. The star’s car was idling in the middle of Military Trail about one mile from police headquarters, a deserted stretch of road at night but an extremely busy traffic artery during the day. Both his brake lights and flashers were on. After he was woken by cops, Woods – who was alone in the car – told them he had no idea where he was, according to the paperwork.
‘I asked Woods where he was going to which he stated he did not know, he just likes to drive,’ the arresting officer’s affidavit states.
Another officer said that Woods was falling asleep even after police had come to investigate his car.
The golfer later stated ‘he was coming from LA California from golfing,’ reads the report.
‘Woods stated that he did not know where he was. Woods had changed the story of where he was was going and where he was coming from.’
He then asked ‘how far from his house he was,’ according to the affidavit. When asked again where he was coming from and heading to, he told police he was leaving LA and ‘that he was on his way down to Orange County.’ Wearing athletic shorts and a t-shirt, Woods was actually driving south, away from his home on Jupiter Island, the report notes.
After a fellow cop, who was interviewing the suspect returned to his car, he observed ‘the driver fell asleep with his eyes closed and his head up against the headrest.’
Woods was described as cooperative and confused at first in the reports, which goes on to reveal that he agreed to a breathalyzer despite earlier reports.
The affidavit also states that there were no odors coming from Woods or the car, this also despite earlier reports claiming that Woods’ breath smelled like liquor according to one officer on the scene.
Police say that when he exited his car, he was struggling to keep upright and was ‘swaying and nearly lost his balance.’
He leaned down to tie his shoes, resting his foot on the police patrol car, and ‘nearly lost his balance.’
‘I asked Woods if he wished to takeoff his shoes. Woods removed his shoes and left them under the front end of my patrol vehicle,’ the officer said in the report.
Woods appeared confused and seemed to struggle during the sobriety tests.
At one point, when Woods was asked to say recite the alphabet backwards to check if he might be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, he instead offered to ‘recite the entire national anthem backwards.’
‘When asked if he understood the directions he stated, ‘yes, recite the entire national anthem backwards.’
Only after the instructions were repeated did he eventually get it right.
‘After several times of explaining the instructions he competed the task correctly,’ the officer said in the report.
