Tiger Woods was arrested in Jupiter, Florida, on Monday morning at 3 a.m. ET on DUI charges, according to Scott Sutton of WPTV.com.

Woods was released later that morning.

Woods would later release a statement on the arrest, saying alcohol wasn't involved, per Steve DiMeglio of USA Today:

Woods, 41, has played sparingly over the past four years due to having four back procedures during that time. He missed the entirety of the 2016 season and played in just two tournaments this year before requiring another surgery in April. 

He has maintained that he will continue to play, however.

"I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again," he said last week, per Bob Harig of ESPN.com.
