Mr. Woods can be seen in a dash cam video looking confused while officers conduct sobriety tests. Ultimately, Florida officers take the golf champion to jail for DUI where presumably a blood sample was drawn.

The toxicology report found Mr. Woods to be on Vicodin, Dilaudid, Xanax, Ambien and THC at the time of his arrest. The FDA warns against mixing several of these medications and warns against operating a motor vehicle while on them. The golf phenomenon has undergone numerous back surgeries with the most recent being in April and has suffered from back pain and insomnia for years.

Woods made a public statement make through a spokesperson on Monday, "As I previously said, I received professional help to manage my medications. Recently, I had been trying on my own to treat my back pain and a sleep disorder, including insomnia, but I realize now it was a mistake to do this without medical assistance. I am continuing to work with my doctors, and they feel I've made significant progress. I remain grateful for the amazing support that I continue to receive and for the family and friends that are assisting me."

Woods was observed by police in Jupiter, Florida asleep behind the wheel of his car pulled over on the side of the road near his home when he was arrested. His most recent competition was in February and he has confirmed that he won't be returning to compete this year.
