Golf legend Tiger Woods was sound asleep at the wheel of his $222,000 Mercedes-Benz when he was first approached by police in Jupiter, according to a police report.

Woods’ car was idling in the middle of Military Trail about one mile from police headquarters, a deserted stretch of road at night but an extremely busy traffic artery during the day. Both his brake lights and flashers were on.

After he was awakened by cops about 2 a.m. Monday, the 41-year-old Woods — who was alone in the car — told them he had no idea where he was, according to the paperwork.

“Woods asked how far from his house he was,” the report reads.

Wearing athletic shorts and a T-shirt, Woods was driving south, away from his home on Jupiter Island, the report notes.

Woods was described as cooperative and confused but unable to keep his eyes open.

The paperwork shows he agreed to take two breath tests. He blew a zero both times, lending credibility to the golfer's statement yesterday saying he suffered a reaction to medication.

Woods asked the police to take a urine test, and cops agreed. Results are pending.

He told police he was on several medications, including painkiller Vicodin and Celexa, an anxiety and depression medication. Woods underwent back surgery recently, and the meds appeared to have been properly prescribed.

The report also shows Woods changed his story about where he was coming from and where he was headed several times.

The golfer was charged with DUI and now faces a six-month suspension of his driver's license.
