VIDEO: Tiger Woods filmed struggling with breath test in jail (Plus arrest video)

Tiger Woods slumps in his chair after arrest.

Footage of Tiger Woods being given a breathalyser test in custody after allegedly driving under the influence has been released by police.
The golf star, 41, was arrested in Florida on Monday after officers spotted a Mercedes parked at the side of a six-lane road, partially in a bicycle lane.

Woods was found asleep behind the wheel with the engine still running, according to a police report.
Footage shot in Palm Beach County Jail shows the golfer in barefoot, wearing shorts and a long sleeve t-shirt, as the arresting officer tells a sergeant he did not see Woods take any substances.
Woods, who appears to struggle to keep his eyes open, is later seen slumped in a chair with his head against the wall of the cell.
The video then shows him being given a breath test, which registered a 0.0 blood-alcohol level.
He appears to struggle with the breath test, with an officer saying to him: "Blow out, blow out - don't suck it." She repeatedly tells him to keep blowing.
In a statement, the 14-time major champion said his condition had been caused by the effects of prescription medicines.
The arrest affidavit listed four medications, including Vicodin, that Woods reported taking.
He said: "I didn't realise the mix of medications had affected me so strongly."
On Thursday, police released footage of Woods stumbling and swaying through a sobriety test in front of his car before he is arrested.
Woods later apologised to his family, friends and fans, saying he would "do everything" in his power "to ensure this never happens again".
The golfer underwent surgery on his back for the fourth time on 20 April and last week claimed he had "not felt this good in years".
He is set to appear in court on 5 July charged with driving under the influence.
