(CBS/WTSP) WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Tiger Woods has apparently jumped back into the dating scene. And his new girlfriend, 22-year old college student and budding West Palm Beach golfer Alyse Lahti Johnston, was arrested on DUI charges in Orlando in October 2010.

The New York Post says that according to an arrest report, Johnston was arrested after crashing her car into another vehicle. The report says that Johnston's breathalyzer result was .210 - more than twice the legal limit. The paper also reports that she allegedly told arresting officers "I am so humiliated. I want to die."

She wound up pleading no contest to a lesser charge of improper change of lane, reports CBS affiliate WTSP.

Johnston's stepfather, Alistair Johnston, is a high-ranking executive at IMG, the sports agency that represents Woods. According to RadarOnline.com, Johnston's biological father is former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jeff Lahti.

Woods' 5-year marriage to model Elin Nordegren ended last year after numerous women claimed to be having affairs with Woods. Nordegren recently purchased a $12.2 million waterfront mansion in North Palm Beach.
