Police found Tiger Woods asleep at the wheel on the side of a six-lane Florida road in the dark of morning, the engine running and his right blinker flashing. His speech was slow and slurred, though there was no alcohol in his system and he didn’t know how far away he was from home.

The details contained in a police affidavit released Tuesday did little to clear up the curious circumstances of his whereabouts on Memorial Day morning, only to confirm Woods’ statement that he had not been drinking before being arrested for suspicion of DUI.

Police described Woods as “cooperative as much as possible,” saying he had trouble keeping his eyes open.

The affidavit was released a day after Woods spent nearly four hours in the Palm Beach County jail on a DUI charge. His mug shot from the jail provided a stark illustration of how much Woods’ mystique has been shattered since his decade of domination that golf had never seen.

In a statement Monday evening, Woods attributed the arrest to an “unexpected reaction” to prescription medicine.

“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions,” he said.

Woods has not competed in four months, and he had fusion surgery on his lower back — his fourth back surgery since April 2014 — on April 20 that will keep him off the PGA Tour for at least the rest of the season.

He told police he had taken several prescriptions.

According to an incident report, police described fresh damage to the driver’s side of the car — both tires were flat, along with minor damage to the rims. There also was minor damage to the front driver’s side bumper and rear bumper, and the passenger rear tail light appeared to be out.

The affidavit said Woods failed a sobriety test on the side of the road because he couldn’t keep his balance or follow instructions.

Breath tests, however, showed no alcohol in his system. Police said Woods agreed to a urine test.

Wearing black athletic shorts and a white T-shirt, Woods told police he had returned from playing golf in Los Angeles. The report said Woods changed his story on where he was coming from and where he was going. His car was parked in a direction headed the opposite way from his home on Jupiter Island.

The affidavit listed four medications, including Vicodin, that Woods reported taking. Vicodin is an opioid pain medication. The other three drugs appear to be misspelled. One is similar in spelling to Solax (a muscle relaxer) or Solox (for acid reflux). Another is similar in spelling to Etorix, a painkiller not currently approved in the United States.

Painkillers are generally prescribed after such surgeries, and many carry warnings to avoid driving while taking them.

“I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly,” Woods said in his statement.

Woods is scheduled to be arraigned July 5 in Palm Beach County on the DUI charge.
