Tiger Woods Arrested for Alleged DUI


Tiger Woods arrested

According to multiple reports, champion golfer Tiger Woods was arrested Monday for an alleged DUI.

The New York Post reports that Woods was booked at the Palm Springs County Jail around 3 a.m. and released at 11 a.m. He has been charged with driving under the influence, but reports have not yet said whether police claim he was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  

In his mug shot, Woods is unshaven with messy hair and vacant eyes; he looks absolutely haggard. He's been on a hiatus from his golfing career due to years worth of recurring back problems. He recently had his fourth surgery since 2014, and he's sitting out this year's PGA season. In the last two years, he's only made three starts, and has not played professionally since he pulled out of the Dubai Desert Classic in February after the opening round. 

Woods just posted to his blog last week, detailing the fusion surgery he had recently, and saying he plans to return to playing golf professionally.
"It has been just over a month since I underwent fusion surgery on my back, and 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. "I could no longer live with the pain I had. We tried every possible non-surgical route and nothing worked. I had good days and bad days, but the pain was usually there, and I couldn’t do much. Even lying down hurt. I had nerve pain with anything I did and was at the end of my rope."
He continued, "I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again.

 Presently, I’m not looking ahead. I can’t twist for another two-and-a-half to three months. Right now, my sole focus is rehab and doing what the doctors tell me. I am concentrating on short-term goals."
 Woods' arrest comes nearly a decade after he was caught in a serial cheating scandal that caused his marriage to end.

What President Trump and Kim Jong Un Ate

The historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un continued midday Tuesday, as the leaders satisfied their appetites while holding negotiations with a contingent of advisers over a working lunch. The lunch, which followed a 45-minute one-on-one meeting between the leaders earlier in the morning and bilateral discussion with senior aides, was held at the Capella Hotel on Singapore’s Sentosa Island. It was far from an intimate affair, with each leader accompanied by a bevy of senior staff, according to the White House. Joining Trump were Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Advisor John Bolton, U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Deputy Assistant to the President for Asian Affairs Matthew Pottinger.
