*Uh oh, Tiger Woods is being a bad boy again. If you haven’t heard, Tiger was arrested this morning and charged for DUI in Jupiter, Florida.
Specifically, the internationally known golfer was stopped by authorities early Monday morning for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. He was taken in around 3am and released from Palm Beach County Jail at 10:50am.
Woods was ‘arrogant’ during arrest
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … cops spotted Woods “driving erratically, all over the road” when they pulled him over. We’re told the officer smelled alcohol on Woods’ breath and at that point Woods became “arrogant.” We’re told the officer asked him to blow into a breathalyzer but he refused. In Florida that means automatic arrest and license suspension.
TMZ’s sources say Woods’ people have been calling the police all morning asking if the cop had a body cam.
By the way, back in 2009 when Woods and then wife Elin Nordegren got into their epic fight back, he hit a tree while allegedly driving under the influence of Ambien. He was not charged with DUI at the time.
According to reports, Woods was driving a 2015 Mercedes which police had planned to have stored, but then cancelled the call. That’s because someone in Woods’ camp retrieved the vehicle.
And in the aftermath of Woods’ arrest, rapper DJ Quik is speaking out.
Apparently the rapper/producer is straight-up freaked out that Woods got busted for a DUI … and seems a little disappointed too.
TMZ broke the news to him at LAX on Monday, and after his jaw almost hits the floor. As you’ll see, he dishes on Tiger’s mug shot and offers some possible explanations why he got in trouble again. His friend chimes in too.
It’s interesting … DJ Quik’s song “Nobody” actually features lyrics about Tiger Woods, so it’s clear he’s a fan.
He has some advice for the “Michael Jordan of f***in’ golf” as well … but it’s really for all of us.
