Tiger Woods Arrested DUI

(Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office)

Tiger Woods was arrested for DUI early Monday morning. Now fans are reacting on Twitter to the news. See reaction tweets below.

Woods was busted in Jupiter, Florida around 3 a.m. local time. He was taken into custody and booked for driving under the influence. A mug shot shows a tired looking and allegedly intoxicated Woods looking straight into the camera. He was later released from the Palm Beach County Jail on his own recognizance.

News of the golfer’s arrest surfaced later Monday morning, prompting his name to shoot to the top of the trending topics on Twitter, second only to “#MemorialDay.” Many users expressed surprise that the sports legend was behind the wheel, as well as disappointment over his alleged behavior. @metsFanscotty, for instance, declared, “Tiger woods needs a driver….”

With an angry-faced emoji, @ChristianneGen3 said, “You have $$$, hire a driver!” @acippy22 pointed out, “I don’t make even close to how much money Tiger Woods has. And even I will splurge on an Uber driver every time I’m drinking. No excuses.” Mocking the golf icon, @PeterTheGreat_ tweeted, “Tiger Woods- ‘I haven’t felt this good in years. I’m coming back.’ Also Tiger- Get a DUI to prove it first.” @thom7002 wrote, “We are all sinners but folks no drinking and driving, disappointed in Golf Legend Tiger Woods.”

“I wish Tiger Woods would just sort himself out and get back fit and playing golf!!!! Golf not the same without him,’ commented @nathanw94258962. But @BenJ6257 predicted, “Tiger Woods is done. Finished. Finito. Dead. Books closed. Ended.” Referring to the unflattering mug shot, @Cupac_4 remarked, “When you think you’ve had a rough day but then you look at Tiger Woods and you think, ‘it’s not that bad.'”

@JimmyTaylor77, stated, “It is safe to say that Tiger Woods just became the hottest new meme.” @Ry_Compeau noted, “Two weeks ago Tiger Woods said ‘he’s never felt better.'” Wonder how he’s feeling now.” Alluding to the ESPN documentary series, @ChiBDM cracked, “Tiger Woods 30 for 30 is gonna be at least a three parter.” @TheReal Moaner posted, “Not a fan of the Tiger Woods abuse. Guy can’t do what he loves. Clearly struggling. Deserves sympathy and help. Not mocking.”

“Tiger Woods looks a state. Don’t know wether to feel sorry for him or not,” admitted @Andymglass. @blndzhvmrfn admitted, “I feel sorry for Tiger Woods. Can you imagine living all of your failures in full view of millions of people?” @Seyi__ expressed, “I am looking at Tiger Woods mugshot right now and I feel bad for him. What a shame.” And @president_gage wrote, “I’m still a huge Tiger Woods fan, and I’m praying he’s able to defeat those demons inside of him.”

Woods’ arrest comes just days after he updated fans on his fusion surgery recovery. “It is hard to express how much better I feel. It was instant nerve relief. I haven’t felt this good in years,” he wrote in a blog post. He went on to assure, “I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again.” He signed off by telling fans, “Have a great summer.”

Unfortunately, Woods’ summer is now getting off to a very bad start. He has not publicly commented on the arrest, but Gossip Cop will update if he does. UPDATE: Click to read Woods’ statement on his DUI arrest.
