The incident occurred approximately around 3 AM and while he was immediately taken in the Palm Beach County Jail, he was released at 10:50 AM the same morning.

The law enforcement confirmed TMZ that Tiger was seen driving 'all over the road', and when they pulled him over and tried to test test his breath with the breathalyzer he refused to blow into it.
Later that evening, Tiger released an official statement saying that he was under influence of some mixed-up prescription medicines and apologized for his conduction.

Read his full statement here:

"I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions.  I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved.  What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications.  I didn't realize the mix of medications affected me so strongly. I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends, and the fans.  I expect more from myself, too.  I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again. I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Dept. and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office for their professionalism."
