Tiger Woods was apprehended on skepticism of driving under the influence early Monday morning.

The famed golfer was booked at 3 a.m. neighbourhood time in Jupiter, Florida, where Woods owns a home. He was liberated around 10:50 a.m ., according to the local NBC News affiliate.

“I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved, ” Woods said in a statement, according to USA Today golf reporter Steve DiMeglio.

“What happened was an sudden reaction to prescribed remedies. I didn’t recognise the mix of remedies had affected me so strongly.”

Woods, 41, hasn’t acquired a major golf name since 2008. He had recently undergone back surgery and was focusing on rehabbing, reported CNN.

Mashable reached out to the Jupiter Police Department and will revise the story as more detailed information are released.
