Tiger Woods was arrested on Monday in Jupiter, Florida on a charge of drunk driving, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
Arrest information shows the 41-year-old golfer was booked into jail at 7:18am and then released on his own recognizance at 10:50am.    
He faces a charge of driving with a blood alcohol level above Florida's legal limit of .08. 
This is the second time that Woods has been caught drinking and driving. 
Two days after the National Enquirer broke the story that Woods had been cheating on his then-wife Elin Nordegren with a New York City club nightclub manager in 2009, Woods left home and crashed his Cadillac Escalade into a fire hydrant, a tree and several hedges.  
 However, he wasn't charged in that incident. 
Following that incident, several other women came forward, saying they too had affairs with the pro golfer. 
A month later, he entered a 45-day therapy program and apologized for his actions, saying 'I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to'.
Woods and Nordegren divorced a little less than a year later, in August 2010.
Since then, Woods' career has been in a free fall as he's failed to remain a major competitor and advertisers have stopped sponsoring him.  
Woods has missed all the major tournaments for the past two years thanks to a back injury.
But he had fusion surgery to address the issue in April and said last week that he hasn't 'felt this good in years'.
'I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again,' Woods said in a statement on his website on Wednesday.  
'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.'
