The Police in Florida have confirmed that golf legend Tiger Woods was not drunk when he was arrested early on Monday.
Despite this revelation,he would still be charged with driving under influence.
News agency reports said the police actually found him asleep at the wheel on the side of a six-lane Florida road in the dark of morning, the engine running and his right blinker flashing.
“There was no alcohol in his system and he didn’t know how far away he was from home”, the Associated Press reported.
Police described Woods as “cooperative as much as possible,” saying he had trouble keeping his eyes open.
According to an incident report, police described fresh damage to the driver’s side of the car — both tires were flat, along with minor damage to the rims. There also was minor damage to the front driver’s side bumper and rear bumper, and the passenger rear tail light appeared to be out.
The affidavit said Woods failed a sobriety test on the side of the road because he couldn’t keep his balance or follow instructions. At one point, police said Woods appeared to be on the verge of falling over and one officer rushed over to catch him if he had.
Breath tests, however, showed no alcohol in his system. Police said Woods agreed to a urine test.
Wearing black athletic shorts and a white T-shirt, Woods told police he had returned from playing golf in Los Angeles.
The report said Woods changed his story on where he was coming from and where he was going. His car was parked in a direction headed the opposite way from his home on Jupiter Island.
The affidavit listed four medications, including Vicodin, that Woods reported taking
