Woods was found in his Mercedes asleep at the wheel in the right lane with the motor running and his right blinker on, per TMZ Sports. After failing his sobriety test miserably, Woods was taken into custody before he blew a 0.00 on his breathalyzer test. Woods claimed that his lethargic behavior, which included slurred speech and an inability to keep his eyes open, was due to a bad reaction from one of his four prescription medicines.
Once one of the greatest golfers in the game, Woods' career and life have been a mess for the better part of the last nine years.
Beginning with his divorce from Elin Nordegren, it was revealed that Woods was a serial cheater and a sex addict.
On the course, he was unable to stay healthy as injuries continued to derail his pursuit of becoming the greatest golfer ever.
ACL, back and elbow issues—along with his issues at home—saw Woods fall from his ranking as the No. 1 golfer in the world, a post he held for 683 weeks, to his current ranking at No. 876.
He hasn’t won a PGA Tour event since 2013, which was the Bridgestone Invitational.
