The athlete, who lives on Jupiter Island, was arrested on Military Trail South of Indian Creek Parkway and held by police at 3am local time.
Woods, 41, was held for nearly eight hours and according to Palm Beach Country Jail he was released at 10.50am.
Woods made his eagerly anticipated comeback after over a year out following back surgery at the Hero Open last December. After an encouraging start he eventually tailed off to finish 15th in a field of just 17.
The 40-year-old insists he has made a full recovery from the injuries that have plagued him over the course of the last few years.
Woods underwent fusion surgery on his back in April, which was his fourth procedure on his back in the past three years. He is not playing on the PGA Tour this season.
The 14-time major champ was undergoing intense rehab sessions since the operation.
Woods opened up about his journey back to health on his website just last week, where he revealed that he was determined to get back to fighting fit so he could return to the golf course.
‘It’s just a matter of not screwing up and letting it fuse. I’m walking and doing my exercises, and taking my kids to and from school. All I can do is take it day by day. There’s no hurry,’ he said.
‘But, I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again. 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.’
He also added: ‘I haven’t felt this good in years.’
