JUPITER, Florida. – The Latest on Tiger Woods’ arrest in Florida on suspicion of driving under the influence (all times are local):
A police report on four medications, including Vicodin, that Tiger Woods is reported to take as he was stopped for a DUI.
The report released Tuesday indicated that Woods told officials that he was recovering from surgery.
Woods has four back surgeries since 2014, the last in April. Painkillers are generally prescribed after such operations, and many carry warnings to avoid driving while taking them. Other medications, including over-the-counter allergy medications or anti-anxiety medications, can also cause drowsiness and are warnings about driving.
The FDA warning for Vicodin says that it “may impair the mental and/or physical abilities required for the performance of potentially hazardous tasks such as driving a car or operating machinery; patients should be cautioned accordingly.”
The report said Woods was cooperative “as much as possible,” when found asleep behind the wheel early Monday morning. He was “very sleepy” and the officer observed it was difficult for the Forest to open his eyes and run hard.

The report says officers wake Forest, who had “very slow and slurred speech” and told them he took the different rules.
According to the report, Woods was confused, and asked how far he was from his Hobe Sound home. Officials said Woods was cooperative but not a roadside sobriety test. Breath test showed no alcohol in his system, and the Woods also agreed to a urine test.
