Woods, 41, was booked in jail and released a few hours later on his own recognizance without bail. The golf legend has had several back surgeries over the years and hasn’t played competitively since he was forced to forfeit the Dubai Desert Classic in February.

Just last month Woods underwent surgery and took to his blog to tell fans he instantly felt better but his main focus was rehab.
“I am concentrating on short-term goals,” Woods wrote. “I want to thank my doctors for their great work and support throughout this process. I also want to thank the fans for your phenomenal support. It means more than you know. There’s a long way to go, but as I said, words cannot convey how good it feels to be pain-free.”
In true social media fashion, when news spread of Woods’ arrest and his mugshot was made public, Twitter had all the jokes.
