Tiger Woods was arrested early Monday morning in Florida and charged with driving under the influence, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said. Woods was taken into custody at 3 a.m. in Jupiter, Florida, according to WPTV. He was released shortly before 11 a.m.
Woods, 41, is one of the greatest golfers of all time, having won 14 major championships. He turned pro at the age of 20, in 1996, and less than a year later captured his first major win at the Masters tournament. In recent years, however, Woods has been hobbled by injuries and hasn’t won a tournament since 2013. He’s undergone multiple back surgeries and hasn’t played competitive golf since February, when he was forced to pull out of the Dubai Desert Classic, according to CNN.
His fourth and most recent back surgery was in April, The New York Times reported. “I haven’t felt this good in years,” Woods said following the procedure, which was expected to keep him off the golf course for six months.
