Police badge

When Tiger Woods was arrested on suspicion of DUI this week, he was taken to the Palm Beach County jail for a few hours before being released.  

In a statement, he  thanked Jupiter Police and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office for their professionalism.  

Sheriff Ric Bradshaw: "It doesn't matter whether it's Tiger Woods or regular person off the street, we're going to definitely treat everybody as humanely as we possibly can and do the job that we have to do."

Woods blames a mix of prescription drugs for the incident, but Bradshaw says he should have known better and we all should heed the warnings on the label."

It says right on there 'If you're taking this do not operate a car or machinery.' And I'm sure that the doctor who prescribed all this medication has told him 'you can only do this and you can only do that.' Obviously, he did not listen or took the prescription pills in a non-prescribed fashion."

Bradshaw also tells us that with the damages on Tiger's Mercedes, he's lucky he wasn't hurt or hurt others.

The sheriff also talks about panhandlers and why you shouldn't give them money, as well as the importance of keeping kids busy summer.
