Man, Tiger really is washed.
American professional golfer Tiger Woods has been charged with driving under the influence in Florida early Monday.
He was arrested near his home in Jupiter, Florida around 3 a.m., he Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said on its website.
While records of the arrest do not specify whether the driving under the influence charges are for alcohol or drugs, a sport expert say nothing can excuse this misdemeanor.
"I don't think anything can excuse him from this behaviour," TSN Golf Talk Canada's host and executive director Mark Zecchino told CP24. "When you're talking about an individual with this kind of money and type of network at his home, he's one phone call from a limousine."
Woods was reportedly released from custody shortly before 11 a.m., according to Palm Beach County Jail records.
The 42-year-old golf great joined the PGA tour in 1996. Since then, he has won 79 PGA tour events, including 14 majors, second only to American golf legend Sam Snead.
"I can't think of an athlete who has had a further fall from grace than Tiger Woods," Zecchino said.
In 2009, Woods meticulously crafted image as one of the sport's most untouchable athletes, according to Zecchino, was shattered by a sex scandal, ultimately throwing him off course.
This was followed by a spate of injuries beginning in 2013, which have forced him to a limited tour schedule.
"I think this is just a miserable human being and not someone in a good mental state," Zecchino said.
