Talk about a fall from grace for Tiger Woods! Who would have thought twenty years ago that the PGA’s hottest player would stumble and fall this low?
Police officers found the 14-time champion drunk in his 2015 Mercedes on Military Trail in Jupiter, Florida, after he was spotted driving dangerously. Officers administered a road side test, and Woods was arrested on the road just a few miles away from his home.
One officer claims that Woods became “arrogant”, and that he refused to take a breathalyzer test. In the state of Florida, a refusal results in an automatic arrest and suspension. Woods was then taken to the Palm Beach County Jail, where he stayed until the following morning.
Tiger Woods underwent back surgery about a month and a half ago, and was hoping to get back into the game soon, which he dominated for so long as major golf’s top player. However, now with this blemish on his record, it remains to be seen what will happen.
