The police also noticed the auto had its brake lights on and signal for the right turn blinking.
Woods then walks unsteadily through the frame. He originally said he was coming from "L.A." and on his way to "Orange County" before stating that he had no idea where he was. Woods' answer is muted in the recording.
"You don't have to walk anywhere", an officer tells him.
It also cost Woods a number of endorsement deals, while other sponsors shifted away from using him in marketing but did not end their contracts with him.
He later attempts to recite the alphabet, and after completion, he is asked to put his hands behind his back, is handcuffed and is placed under arrest.
Andrew Zimbalist, an economics professor at Smith College in MA, said sponsors will likely cut ties with Woods should the results show he was lying. The brake lights are on, and the right turn signal is blinking. The passenger-side rear taillight was not working, according to the documents.
In the dashcam video that police released, the athlete is not seen immediately but is heard telling officers off-camera that he did not know where he was.
"Where are you headed to?"
We've seen those same dead eyes in many mugshots before.
"I am looking at the light", Woods responds.
An Instagram model, who was rumored to have been partying with Tiger Woods prior to his DUI arrest Monday, has opened up about the reports calling them false. The engine was running, the blinker was on and the vehicle had two flat tires along with some other damage, CBS 12 in West Palm Beach reported. He was by himself and wearing his seat belt.
ESPN quoted the official police report in the case, saying Woods was suffering from extremely slow and slurred speech.
Woods told officers he takes several prescriptions including vicodin.
Police found no alcohol in his system, reported The Washington Post, but Woods was still charged with a DUI and improper parking. He said in a statement released Monday night that the incident was a result of an unanticipated reaction to prescription medication and not from alcohol.
Katie Phang, a former Florida prosecutor, said the statement in which Woods took full responsibility could come back to haunt him if he fights the charge.
Woods's arraignment in Palm Beach County court is scheduled for July 5.
He apologised to his family, friends and fans, adding he would "do everything" in his power "to ensure this never happens again". He was racking up major championships at a faster clip than even Nicklaus had, and on pace to pass Sam Snead for all-time tour wins easily. On Monday, the Florida Police had noticed Woods' Mercedes pulled to the side of the road with engines still running.
Woods has had four back surgeries since 2014, the latest in April.
The model, who has 8 million followers on Instagram, said she had no history with Woods, including phone calls or text messages. A source told TMZ she said "I knew it, I knew it", when she got the call, and began to cry. It also had two flat tyres.
