Tiger Woods has been arrested overnight on a DUI charge in Florida, and spent nearly four hours in a county jail before he was released.
Woods was arrested on suspicion of DUI about 3 a.m. Monday local time and taken to the Palm Beach County jail, Jupiter Police spokeswoman Kristin Rightler said. He was arrested on Military Trail, south of Indian Creek Parkway.
Jail records show that the 41-year-old was booked into Palm Beach County jail at 7:18 a.m. and released at 10:50 a.m. The jail released a booking photo of Woods in a white T-shirt.
Rightler said an arrest report may be available Tuesday.
“It’s embarrassing for Tiger, something that you can’t go back and change,” Notah Begay, a roommate of Woods when they played at Stanford said on Golf Channel from the NCAA men’s golf championship, where he was working for the network. “I’ve been there myself. … But it was a turning point in my life. Hopefully, it’s something he’ll learn from, grow from, take responsibility for and use it to make some changes.”
