Woods arrested on suspicion of DUI
FORMER world number one golfer Tiger Woods was arrested in South Florida yesterday morning on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to media reports.
Woods, who is second on the alltime list with 14 major titles, was taken into custody at about 7 am GMT (9 am SAST) near his Jupiter Island home and released hours later on his own recognisance, NBC affiliate WPTV reported.
Woods, currently sidelined from competition after having his fourth back surgery in April, said last week that he felt better than he had in years and had no plans to retire from competitive golf. — Reuters.
