It's not the first time Tiger Woods has made headlines for dubious reasons over a holiday: The golfer was arrested on suspicion of DUI around 3am Monday in Jupiter, Florida, reports WPTV, which notes that's where Woods resides. Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office records indicate the 41-year-old was booked shortly after 7am and released at 10:50am under his own recognizance.

A police spokesperson said she had no more details about the circumstances leading to the arrest or whether drugs or alcohol were involved, but that an arrest report may be available Tuesday, the AP reports. Sports Illustrated reports the former No. 1 player in the world underwent back surgery once again in April, and hasn't hit the links competitively since February, when he pulled out of a Dubai tournament due to back problems.
