JUPITER (CBSMiami) – The Jupiter Police Department has released dash cam footage of their initial stop of Tiger Woods and the field sobriety test they administered the morning he was arrested for suspicion of DUI.
Officers spotted Woods' car on Military Trail. It was blocking the right hand lane. The left brake light was on and right turn signal flashing.
An officer approached the front passenger side of the car, knocking on the window. A second officer approached the driver side a short time after. Police said Woods was asleep at the wheel.
In the second video shared by the department, Woods undergoes a field sobriety test.
You can hear an officer ask Woods where he is coming from and where he is headed.
Woods responded he was returning from Los Angeles and going to Orange County, but Woods then concedes he has no idea where he currently was.
The officer then asked Woods if he had been drinking, to which the pro golfer replied "no." The officer tells Woods he could smell an odor coming from him.
The officer has Woods walk to the front of the squad car where Woods attempted to tie his shoes on the hood. Woods stumbles a bit as he tried to knot his right shoe. Unable to tie his left shoe, the officer moved Woods off the side of the road to remove his sneakers.
A barefoot Woods then approached the officer, who beamed a flashlight at Woods' eyes.
Woods is asked to walk a straight line, but struggled keeping his balance.
The officers had Woods perform a few more tasks, including reciting the alphabet. Woods was able to complete the alphabet task, but was put into hand cuffs right after.
Woods, who recently had his fourth back surgery, is also heard telling the officers he has screws in his knee when they asked if he had anything that would poke them during a search.
Authorities took Woods into custody around 3 a.m. He was then booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 7 a.m. Jail records indicate he was released from custody just before 11 a.m.
The release of the dash cam videos come after police shared pictures of the damage to Woods' car.
The front tires were flattened and the rims were also damaged.

A breath test registered 0.0 for alcohol, corroborating what Woods said in a statement issued Monday evening.
Woods attributed an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medicine for his arrest.
"I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions," Woods said in a statement Monday evening. "I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn't realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly."
