Criminal expert: Tiger Woods made mistake issuing statement
Jupiter police released photos of the Wood’s black Mercedes Wednesday afternoon, showing one of the car’s tires flat and damaged.
The video shows officers administering a slew of tests, including asking him to walk along the white line on the road.
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.
A report said Woods also told police he “takes several prescriptions”. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly. He was cited for DUI and improper parking, and will be arraigned on July 5.
According to the Probable Cause Affidavit, the 41-year-old Woods had to be woken up by an officer.
He is also asked to slowly recite the alphabet.
The officer then asks Woods: “Have you had anything to drink tonight?”
As Crime Online previously reported, Woods was booked in a Palm Beach jail briefly before being released on his own recognizance a few hours later.
Woods was reportedly found by police asleep at the wheel with his vehicle pulled over and his brake lights on. The dialogue appears consistent with the arrest reports which were released earlier.
Before taking a field test, he is seen on the video trying to tie his shoes, but is unsuccessful with both. When he did, he leaned forward after losing his balance.He couldn’t follow a red light the officer moved from side to side.
“I’m following the light”, Woods says.
In his statement, Woods apologized to family, friends and fans. He is now recovering after recently undergoing back surgery for an ongoing injury, one which has severely limited his tournament appearances over the last two years.
