Tiger Woods was asleep at the wheel but had no alcohol in his system when officers spotted his car stopped along a Florida road, according to a police affidavit that knocked down earlier reports his breath smelled of alcohol.
An affidavit about his DUI charge, released Tuesday morning by authorities in Palm Beach County, said Woods was alone and wearing his seat belt when Jupiter Police officers found his Mercedes early Monday in the right lane on Military Trail, a six-lane road, south of Indian Creek Parkway, reported The Associated Press. He was about 20 minutes from his home on Jupiter Island.
The car's engine was running and its lights were on.
The affidavit said officers woke Woods, who had "extremely slow and slurred speech" and told them he took several prescriptions.
According to the report, Woods was confused and asked how far he was from his Hobe Sound home. Officers said Woods was cooperative but failed a roadside sobriety test. Breath and urine tests showed no alcohol in his system.
Woods' arraignment in Palm Beach County court on a DUI charge is scheduled for July 5.
There were earlier reports, since recanted, that Woods was stopped while driving erratically, that police smelled alcohol on him and that he became arrogant.
