Tiger Woods' Struggle with Breathalyzer Test Revealed in New Video

A new video taken after Tiger Woods was arrested for DUI in Florida shows the golfing great struggling to complete a Breathalyzer test.

In the footage released Friday by the Jupiter Police Department, Woods appears to be having a hard time with the device, which determines the amount of alcohol in a person's body by analyzing a puff of their breath.

A law enforcement official conducting the test is heard instructing him multiple time to blow into the tube of the machine rather than sucking in.

Woods reportedly blew a .000 on the breathalyzer — meaning there was no alcohol in his system. He said his condition was due to an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medication.

An earlier video released by cops showed Woods outside his car and unsteady on his feet as police had him walk a straight line.

In a statement, Woods said:

"I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions. I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications.

"I didn't realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly. I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself too. I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again."

Woods is recovering from his fourth back surgery in April to alleviate ongoing pain in his back and leg.

He is set to be arraigned on Monday in Palm Beach Court.

It's the 14-time major champion's second driving mishap. In 2009, he plowed his SUV into a tree and a fire hydrant and was cited for careless driving and fined $164.
