Officers found Woods asleep at the wheel

Despite a story on TMZ that said Woods was driving his 2015 Mercedes-Benz "erratically" and smelled of alcohol, the police report says he was found in his stopped auto and smelled of nothing at all.

The report said Woods had to be woken up and "had extremely slow and slurred speech".

Also from TMZ, the police report says Woods flunked the field sobriety test, with the golfer not being able to do the one-leg stand or the nose touch.

Woods' arrest came after Jupiter, Fla. police approached his still-running auto around 3 a.m. ET on Memorial Day.

His arraignment in Palm Beach County court on a DUI charge is scheduled for 5 July. It says he was "cooperative as much as possible, very droopy, extremely sleepy, hard to keep eyes open, hard to walk".

Wearing athletic shorts and a T-shirt, Woods was driving south, away from his home on Jupiter Island, the report notes. He said in a statement on his web site last week he wants to return to professional golf.

"Woods asked how far from his house he was", the report reads.

The paperwork shows he agreed to take two breath tests.

In a statement, Woods blamed the incident on prescription medication.

"I fully cooperated with law enforcement".

The police record states that the 14-time Major victor was released "on his own recognisance", meaning he promised in writing to co-operate with future legal proceedings.

Woods told the officer he "takes several prescriptions".

He was released at 10:50am on "his own recognisance", meaning he has given a written undertaking to co-operate with future legal proceedings. Woods recently underwent his fourth back surgery in four years. Woods says he didn't realize the mix of medications affected him that strongly.

He apologised to his family, friends and fans, adding he would "do everything" in his power "to ensure this never happens again".
