The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says on its website that Woods was booked into a county jail around 7 a.m. Monday.

Jail records show Woods had been arrested by police in Jupiter. He was released just before 11 a.m. on his own recognizance.

He has been charged under a driving under the influence statute.

No other details were immediately available. Messages left for a Jupiter police spokeswoman were not immediately returned.

The former top golfer in the world has been out of action since undergoing the latest in a series of back surgeries in April.

It’s uncertain when he’ll return to the PGA Tour.
