Tiger Woods can't follow simple instructions during a dazed and disoriented encounter with police in dash-cam footage that Jupiter released Wednesday night.
The footage also shows Woods stumble and sway through a sobriety test before being arrested.
"I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions", Woods said in a statement Monday evening.
Woods reportedly blew a 0.0 on two breathalyzer tests, so alcohol was evidently not involved in his DUI.
In a statement he released Monday, Woods claimed that he was suffering from "an unexpected reaction to prescription medications".
Tiger is due in court on July 5 in Palm Beach County for the DUI charge.
Tiger Woods tees off on the 11th hole during the first round of the Dubai Desert Classic golf tournament in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017. When he told them he was taking medication, police muted part of the tape in which Woods describes it. When asked if he has anything else on him, like a necklace, Woods responds, saying he has "a few screws in the body", referring to past surgeries.
One officer noted that Woods fell asleep multiple times during the investigation: " the driver began reaching in his pockets and I asked him not to reach into his pockets for anything. I immediately had the driver push the button again to turn the vehicle back off. The auto also had damage on the driver's side front bumper and white scrapes and scuffs on the rear bumper, according to the report.
Woods apologized to his family, friends and fans and said, "I expect more from myself, too". Woods can be heard telling him he did not know where. The same witness also said Woods had been prescribed two drugs, the sleep aid Ambien and the painkiller Vicodin.
"He's had four back surgeries and seven knee surgeries ... it's tough to see him go through this".
Officers searched the road where Woods was found to see if there was any evidence of damage along the road and found none.
