More disturbing images of Tiger Woods have emerged in the black-and-white details of police reports, depicting him sound asleep behind the wheel of a car parked awkwardly on the side of a six-lane Florida road with two flat tires, the engine still running and a blinker flashing.

When a police officer woke him, Woods was so disoriented that he initially said he had just returned from playing golf in Los Angeles. Then, he said he didn't know where he was or how far away he was from his home in Jupiter Island.

He kept falling back asleep.

Eventually, he failed a sobriety test so badly that at one point officers moved toward him to ensure he didn't fall over.

There was no evidence of alcohol, however, confirming what Woods said Monday night when he issued a statement saying he had had an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medicine.

Jupiter police said he took a breath test that showed no alcohol in his system. He later agreed to a urine test.

Still to come is potential video evidence from dashcam footage showing his arrest on suspicion of DUI in the morning darkness of Memorial Day.

An affidavit and an incident report from the four officers at the scene were released a day after Woods spent nearly four hours in the Palm Beach County jail. His mug shot from the jail -- showing lifeless eyes and scraggly facial hair -- provided a stark illustration of how much Woods' mystique has been shattered since a decade of domination that golf had never seen.

It left players on the PGA Tour hopeful for better times, and not just on the golf course.

"I feel bad for Tiger," Jack Nicklaus said. "Tiger is a friend. He's been great for the game of golf, and I think he needs all our help. And we wish him well. ... I hope he gets out of it and I hope he plays golf again. He needs a lot of support from a lot of people, and I'll be one of them."

Woods remains a favorite among players young and old. When he was an assistant captain at the Ryder Cup last September, the American team presented him a red shirt that said, "Make Tiger Great Again."
