The affidavit released by police on Tuesday shows Woods’ breath test results were .000 at the time of his arrest.

According to the paperwork, an officer found a black Mercedes stopped in the right lane of a Jupiter road around 2 a.m. The officer says Woods was sleeping in the car by himself with his seatbelt on. The car was running with brake lights on and the right blinker flashing.

The officer said Woods told him he was coming from a golf trip in Los Angeles and didn’t know where he was.

Police say Woods had extremely slow and slurred speech and appeared to be confused, but was cooperative. He did tell police he takes several prescriptions, according to the paperwork.

The golfer was taken into custody around 3 a.m. and later released.
