Police in Jupiter, Florida, officially released dashcam video Wednesday of the field sobriety test they conducted with Tiger Woods before charging him with a DUI on Memorial Day.

Golf.com's Twitter feed provided the video, which shows Woods being cooperative with the arresting officer:

The Jupiter Police Department has released dashcam video of Tiger Woods' DUI arrest. https://t.co/pFt4QLksqs

The full video on Golf.com shows Woods admitting to the officer that he did not know where he was when he stopped. He also had to be reminded why he was being pulled over after police found him stopped in the road. 

Footage then shifts to Woods struggling to walk in a straight line when asked to do the heel-to-toe sobriety test. An officer can be heard in the background grading Woods' steps, noting he stepped off the line and missed his heel-to-toe attempts multiple times. He also failed to count out the requested nine steps before also failing on a second attempt.

A police report released Tuesday said Woods' Mercedes had two flat tires and damage to the rear and front bumpers. He did not have any alcohol in his system when tested twice by police. In a statement released to media outlets, Woods blamed prescription medications for the incident. 

“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions," Woods said in a statement. "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 had affected me so strongly."

Woods, 41, underwent a fourth surgery on his back in April.
