(Newser) – Tiger Woods' DUI arrest and mugshot have topped headlines over the past few days, and now the Smoking Gun reports there soon may be more visual evidence. A police report out of Jupiter, Fla., notes the sobriety field tests Woods was asked to perform after cops found him asleep at the wheel on Monday were recorded by a police dashcam. The 12-minute video captured a "cooperative" but "confused" Woods trying to carry out the tasks, in which he found it "hard to walk" and "hard to keep [his] eyes open." CNN notes there was also "fresh damage" to the tire rims on the driver's side of his Mercedes and to a couple of the bumpers, and two tires were flat, per police notes. The Smoking Gun notes that even though the on-scene video hasn't yet been released, Florida's open-records laws mean the public will likely get a glimpse of it eventually. (It wasn't alcohol that brought on Woods' DUI.)
