Woods is wearing shorts, a dark hat and a light-colored shirt. Woods, who claimed that he understood the officer's instructions, was then asked by the same officer to repeat the instructions that were given to him. He returns to begin the tests. Asked whether he was drinking, Woods says "No".

Woods confessed to taking Vicodin, an opioid pain medication, and the affidavit listed four medications, which was similar in spelling to Solax (a muscle relaxer) or Solox (for acid reflux), Etorix, a painkiller not now approved in the United States. Woods' answer is muted in the recording.

He couldn't follow a red light the officer moved from side to side.

It also cost Woods a number of endorsement deals, while other sponsors shifted away from using him in marketing but did not end their contracts with him.

At one point in the sobriety tests Woods asks, "What are we doing?"

Eventually, his hands were behind his back as he was arrested and placed in the back seat of a patrol auto.

The video shows Woods' vehicle pulled over to the right side of the road with the right blinker on.

In a separate dashcam video, when police first arrived on the scene, Woods' auto is stopped with its right turn signal on and mostly still in the right lane of the three-lane parkway. TMZ also obtained photos of the damaged vehicle.

Another officer eventually joins Palladino, who begins to question Woods.

When asked to walk a straight line by going heel-to-toe nine times, Woods staggered from the starting position.

"Do you know where you are at right now", Fandrey asks.

Woods also declared in the post, which came about a month after his fusion surgery, that "I haven't felt this good in years".

"You don't have to walk anywhere", an officer tells him. Both driver's side tires were flat and the rims were damaged. He was by himself and wearing his seat belt.

When news of his arrest first surfaced, Woods said he made a mistake by misunderstanding the effects of the medications he was taking.

A breath test showed a blood alcohol level of 0.00% and in a statement Woods, 41, said his condition had been caused by the effects of prescription medicines. "I didn't realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly", he said.

Woods released a statement on Monday night where he said he took "full responsibility for his actions".

The golf star was arrested on Monday in Jupiter, Florida on a charge of drunk driving, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
