Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

JUPITER, Fla. – Tiger Woods was ar­rested early Mon­day on a DUI charge in Jupiter, Florida, and spent nearly four hours in a county jail be­fore he was re­leased. Woods, the 14-time ma­jor cham­pion who ranks sec­ond with his 79 ca­reer vic­to­ries on the PGA Tour, has not played for four months.

He is out for the rest of the sea­son while he re­cov­ers from his fourth back surgery. Woods was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of DUI about 3 a.m. Mon­day in a sub­ur­ban area and taken to the Palm Beach County jail, Jupiter Po­lice spokes­woman Kristin Rightler said.

He was ar­rested on Mil­i­tary Trail, south of In­dian Creek Park­way.

Jail records show that Woods was booked into Palm Beach County jail at 7:18 a.m. and re­leased on his own re­cog­ni­zance at 10:50 a.m. Rightler said she did not have ad­di­tional de­tails about the cir­cum­stances lead­ing to Woods’ ar­rest, nor did she have any in­for­ma­tion about whether the ar­rest in­volved drugs or al­co­hol.

She said an ar­rest re­port may be avail­able Tues­day.
