Tiger Woods' car showed fresh damage, police say

Police say Woods was asleep at the wheel when officers spotted his vehicle stopped along a Florida road early Monday morning.

In the police report released on Tuesday, Woods told the arresting officer he had no idea where he was and his speech was described as "extremely slow and slurred, mumbled and confused".

The 41-year-old was arrested by police near his home in Jupiter, Florida, around 3:00 am (0700 GMT) before his release later Monday after being charged with DUI. It said Woods was cooperative but had a hard time walking and keeping his eyes open.

Woods, who is now sidelined from competition after having his fourth back surgery in April, said last week that he felt better than he had in years and had no plans to retire from competitive golf.

The golf superstar, who issued a statement on Monday saying alcohol was not involved in the incident, needed to be woken by a police officer, his arrest report showed. "I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved".

Woods later claimed he had an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medicine.

Mark Steinberg, Woods's longtime agent, would not say Monday evening whether the mix of medications Woods cited was related to his back problems. "And I feel bad for him", said Nicklaus ahead of Thursday's start of the Memorial Tournament.

Last week, he wrote on his website that the fusion surgery had given him instant relief from pain - and said he hadn't felt so good for years. I hope he plays.

The 14-time major victor will not play again this season after undergoing a fourth back surgery last month, and Nicklaus has called for support from the golfing community.

"I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions", Woods said.

Woods was asked to perform a few coordination tasks on the side of the road where he was arrested.

In his statement, the golfer apologized to family, friends and fans.

"I'm concerned about him", said Steve Stricker, the Presidents Cup captain who chose Woods as one of his assistants.

This Woods was found asleep in his damaged Mercedes in the dead of night, with his brake lights on, his right blinker flashing, his bumpers banged up, and his two driver-side tires flat.

Woods is scheduled to be arraigned July 5 in Palm Beach County on the DUI charge.

While in custody, Woods submitted to breath tests to determine if he had been drinking alchohol, and twice blew 0.000.
