Woods found asleep at the wheel, no alcohol in his system

The citation notes that Woods was driving a black 2015 Mercedes which was "stopped in the right lane with the vehicle partially in the bike lane" when police approached.

Woods was arrested Monday and charged with a DUI after police found him knocked out behind the driver's seat of his auto.

Woods was heading south, away from his Jupiter Island home, before his arrest at about 3 a.m. (0700 GMT) on Monday, according to the report.

There was no evidence of alcohol, however, confirming what Woods said Monday night when he issued a statement saying he had had an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medicine.

Mr Woods also told police he was taking several prescription medications. His claim was supported by two breath tests showing Woods' blood alcohol content to be zero, according to a police report.

The police report indicates that Woods has been on painkillers and anti-inflammatory medication.

The 14-time major champion blamed "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications" in a statement issued after his release, while also apologising for his arrest.

Woods will face an arraignment hearing on July 5 before Judge Sandra Bosso-Pardo.

Woods has had four back surgeries since 2014, the latest in April.

He was cited for DUI and improper parking, and records said there was no crash or damage to any property.

"I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans", Woods said Monday.

A police report said the golfer was "confused" when he was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

The Worldwide Leader said the hair was not a crime too gruesome to show to innocent viewers, but rather a result of cropping Woods onto the template it uses for each athlete's headshot. "I didn't realise the mix of medications had affected me so strongly", he said.

But it was the subject of conversation ahead of the Memorial Tournament, the next stop on the PGA Tour, at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.

The 18-time major victor said: "I feel bad for Tiger. I think he needs all our help and we wish him well".

But Nicklaus acknowledged Woods's surgery will be tough to come back from.

Shortly after his victory, Woods announced he would undergo reconstructive ACL surgery on his left knee and would miss the rest of the PGA Tour season.

The greatest player of his generation and one of the best of all time, Woods, 41, has not won a major tournament since 2008.
