The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says on its website that Woods was booked into a county jail around 7 a.m. on Monday.

Jail records show Woods had been arrested by police in Jupiter. He was released just before 11 a.m. on his own recognizance. He has been charged under a Driving Under the Influence statute.

No other details were immediately available. Messages left for a Jupiter police spokeswoman were not immediately returned.

The 14-time major winner is likely out for the entire 2017 PGA Tour season after he underwent back surgery in April. It was Woods’ fourth procedure on his troublesome back since 2009.

    And the downward spiral continues. Stick a fork in him, he is done. But don’t make a spark around him because he could explode.

    These sports celebs all live in their own little bubble and could care less about the common folk. None of them understand the true face of struggling Americans.

    We don’t care about Tiger’s Lamborghini’s or DUI’s. We are struggling to pay taxes, rent, healthcare, etc. Health insurance is unaffordable (mine is 700 bucks a month… contrast this to my $24/month auto insurance from Insurance Panda… or my $11/month life insurance). Two thirds of young adults have student loans to which they cannot pay back due to lack of good jobs in the community.

    Can someone make an app like AdBlock but call it TigerBlock so that I don’t ever have to see anything about this trash again?
