Tiger Woods was arrested early Monday on charges of DUI, or driving under the influence, near his Jupiter, Fla. home.
Woods was taken into custody at approximately 3 a.m. on Military Trail, south of Indian Creek Parkway, and he was booked at approximately 7:15 a.m. on Monday morning. The location is approximately 3 miles from The Woods Jupiter, Woods’ restaurant.
Woods was released at approximately 10:50 a.m. this morning on his own recognizance.

WPTV in West Palm Beach was the first to report the story.
Late on Monday, Woods released a statement saying alcohol was not a factor in his impairment, saying the issue stemmed from his body’s reaction to prescription medication. Woods said he cooperated fully with Palm Beach County police and the county sheriff’s office.
The sheriff’s office is expected to release an incident report and any available body- or dash-cam footage on Tuesday.
Woods has been out of action since February, when he shot a first-round 77 at the Dubai Desert Classic on the European Tour. He pulled out before the second round, citing lower back spasms, then pulled out of planned starts at the Genesis Open and The Honda Classic, his hometown event.
In late April, Woods had a fourth back surgery in just over three years, a spinal fusion procedure to relieve nerve pain in his back. Woods said he would be out at least six months but planned to return to competitive golf.
