Tiger Woods Arrested For DUI Early Monday Morning

Tiger Woods was arrested on DUI charges early Monday morning in Jupiter, FL, according to the Associated Press.

Police say golf great Tiger Woods has been arrested on a DUI charge in Florida.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says on its website that Woods was booked into a county jail around 7 a.m. on Monday.

Jail records show Woods had been arrested by police in Jupiter. He was released just before 11 a.m. on his own recognizance. He has been charged under a Driving Under the Influence statute.

Woods is recovering from back surgery in April - his fourth back surgery since 2014 - and said on his website that he hasn't "felt this good in years" and that his "sole focus is rehab and doing what the doctors tell me."

Woods is not able to participate in any physical activity as he recovers from the surgery, but does intend to play golf again.

"The long-term prognosis is positive,'' Woods said. "My surgeon and physiotherapist say the operation was successful. It's just a matter of not screwing up and letting it fuse. I'm walking and doing my exercises, and taking my kids to and from school. All I can do is take it day by day. There's no hurry. But, I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again.

"Presently, I'm not looking ahead. I can't twist for another two and a half to three months. Right now, my sole focus is rehab and doing what the doctors tell me. I am concentrating on short-term goals.''
