WATCH: Police Release Footage Of Tiger Woods' Arrest

Florida Police have released dashcam footage of Tiger Woods struggling to walk in a straight line following his arrest.

The former world number one was arrested in the early hours of Monday morning, with police reportedly finding him asleep in his car.

As per authorities, Woods was taken into custody at around 3am local time, with records showing that he was released at around 10.30am.

The record says that the 14-time major champion was released "on his own recognisance".

Footage of Woods' arrest, including a sobriety test which was carried out by officers, has emerged online.

Woods, a record eleven-time PGA Player of the Year, was charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI) after the incident near his home.

In a statement briefed to media outlets, Woods, who passed a breathalyser test that showed that he did not have any alcohol in his system, put his condition down to the prescribed medication he was taking following back surgery.

He said:

"I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn't realise the mix of medications had affected me so strongly."

"I would like to apologise with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself too."

Woods is scheduled to appear at Palm Beach County Court on 5 July following the charge.
