According to the police report that was released Tuesday morning, police found Woods "asleep at the wheel." He told police that he was on his way back from California, then said that he thought he was in California "golfing." He failed a field sobriety test and was "sluggish, sleepy [and] unable to walk alone," but blew a .000 on a breathalyzer test.
