WATCH: Police release dashcam video of Tiger Woods' DUI arrest

Police said Woods took two breath test, each recording 0.000 percent

JUPITER, Fla. – Police released dashboard camera video Wednesday of golfer Tiger Woods' arrest on suspicion of drunken driving.

The Jupiter Police Department released audio recordings Wednesday afternoon of the moment police spotted Woods' vehicle.

"Southbound, just south of Indian Creek Parkway, black Mercedes stopped in the right hand lane," police said in the recording.

Woods was arrested on Memorial Day in Jupiter.

According to the arrest report, Woods was found asleep at the wheel of his Mercedes-Benz, which was stopped in a bicycle lane in the southbound lanes of Military Trail, just south of Indian Creek Parkway, when officers arrived shortly after 2 a.m. Monday.

The car's driver's side tires were flat, the rear passenger tail light was out and there was minor damage to the bumpers.

Police said Woods "was extremely slow to answer questions, had slurred and mumbled speech," and showed signs of being impaired.

According to the report, Woods told police that he was coming from Los Angeles and was on his way to Orange County, California. Woods later said he was coming from Jupiter.

Police said Woods told officers that he didn't have anything to drink and hadn't taken any illegal drugs.

According to the report, Woods struggled to follow the field-sobriety exercises and had trouble maintaining his balance throughout.

Police said Woods took two breath tests -- each recording 0.000 percent -- and provided a urine sample. The state legal limit is 0.08 percent.

Woods was booked into a Palm Beach County jail and later released on his own recognizance.

The 41-year-old golfer, who has a home on Jupiter Island, released a statement after his arrest saying that he had "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications."

Woods has undergone multiple back surgeries and hasn't played competitive golf since February.
