Tiger Woods arrested for drunk-driving charge in Florida.

Sweden, May 30 -- The legendary golfer was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in South Florida early Monday when a police smelled alcohol on his breath during a traffic stop and Woods refused to take a Breathalyzer, a report said.

Woods' mugshot showed how far the man who was once the bright-eyed new face of golf has fallen - sporting bleary eyes, a scraggly beard and thinning, disheveled hair.

The pro golfer - who hasn't been the same since his extramarital sexploits were exposed in 2009 - was pulled over around 3 a.m. in the town of Jupiter, a police spokeswoman said.

He was heading southbound - in the opposite direction of his $83 million waterfront home and his restaurant The Woods, local reports said.

The 14-time major champion, who was the world's No. 1 golfer longer than anyone else, was driving a 2015 Mercedes-Benz "erratically, all over the road" when he was stopped, law-enforcement sources told.

Woods grew "arrogant" during the stop and refused to take a Breathalyzer test, which is a ground for an automatic arrest.

The site also reported that his reps repeatedly called the Jupiter Police Department to find out if the cop was wearing a body camera.

Woods spent 3 1/2 hours in the Palm Beach County Jail before being released at 10:50 a.m., according to online booking records.

Jupiter Police Department spokeswoman Kristin Rightler said she didn't know if the allegations against Woods involved alcohol or drugs and said his arrest report wouldn't be available at least until Tuesday.
