'He's Going Through A Difficult Time': Tiger Woods' Ex-Mistress Says She Feels Sorry For The Golfer As He Is Arrested For Drink-Driving

Tiger Woods was arrested on Monday in Jupiter, Florida on a charge of DUI. He's pictured above in his mugshot

One of Tiger Woods' ex-mistresses has emerged after his DUI arrest today, saying she feels sorry for the golfer. 'I saw the news, I only feel compassion for the guy. I think he's a good person, and it's kind of sad,' Cori Rist, left, told the New York Post on Monday, just hours after Woods' (right) 3am arrest. 

The 41-year-old golfer was arrested for DUI around 3am in Jupiter, Florida on Monday. Sources tell TMZ that Woods was 'driving erratically, all over the road'. An officer smelled alcohol on Woods' breath but the golfer refused to take a breathalyzer test. In Florida, refusing to take the test results in an immediate DUI arrest.

'I think he’s a good person, and clearly he’s a good father, and he’s going through a difficult time, and I think people should offer support instead of applauding his downfall,' Rist, a former lingerie model, said. 
'I just wish him the best, and I hope to see a good outcome from all of this, and I think he’ll be OK.' 
Woods was arrested early Monday morning in Florida on a charge of driving under the influence.

The 41-year-old golfer was arrested around 3am on Military Trail, south of Indian Creek Parkway in Jupiter.
Arrest information from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office shows Woods was booked into jail at 7:18am and then released on his own recognizance at 10:50am, meaning he did not have to post bail.
He faces a charge of driving under the influence of either alcohol or drugs. Police have yet to specify which, if not both, though more details are set to be released on Tuesday. 
Woods lives in the elite enclave of Jupiter Island, but was driving southbound, away from his home at the time. He was about seven to 10 minutes from The Woods, a restaurant he owns in the area. 
Sources tell TMZ that Woods was 'driving erratically, all over the road'. 

Woods was arrested in Jupiter, Florida around 3am - not far from his mansion in the elite enclave of Jupiter Island 
When they pulled him over, the officer smelled alcohol on Woods' breath and said Woods became 'arrogant'.
The officer asked Woods to blow into a breathalyzer and he refused, which in Florida results in an automatic DUI arrest and license suspension.  
The source added that Woods' team has been calling the police department all morning, asking if the cop had a body cam.   
TMZ reports that Woods was driving a 2015 Mercedes, and that cops were planning to tow the vehicle before a friend retrieved it.  
This is the second time that Woods has been caught driving under the influence. 

In November 2009, 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 nightclub manager, Woods left home after taking an Ambien 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 professional golfer - tarnishing his previously pristine image.  
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. The former couple have two kids together - a daughter named Sam, born in 2007, and a son named Charlie, born in 2009.
