Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office(JUPITER, Fla.) -- Tiger Woods has been charged with driving under the influence in Jupiter, Florida, according to local ABC affiliate WPBF-TV.

He was arrested at around 3 a.m. Monday on Military Trail just south of Indian Creek Parkway, WPBF-TV reported.

Woods, 41, is considered to be among the most dominant golfers in the history of the sport, but his career has declined precipitously in recent years as he's battled injuries and inconsistency.

A golf prodigy who entered the professional world at an early age, Woods won his first major tournament championship in 1997 at 21.

The 14 major tournament championships he won before the age of 32 are second only to Jack Nicklaus.

Woods hasn't won a major tournament since the U.S. Open in June 2008, however. Since then, he has dealt with a number of high-profile scandals, including his divorce to former model Elin Nordegren in 2010 after he admitted to infidelity.

Woods told ABC News' Good Morning America in March that his “priorities have changed a lot."

"My kids now dominate my life and I think that’s a good thing," he said.

iStock/Thinkstock(MIAMI) -- Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout injured his thumb while attempting to steal a base in the team's 9-2 loss to the Miami Marlins on Sunday. The reigning American League MVP jammed his left, non-throwing thumb while sliding head into second base and was eventually removed from the game.

The Angels announced that X-rays taken on Trout's hand were negative for any fracture, according to an ESPN report. He will undergo an MRI on Monday.

Trout called the injury, "A scary thing," adding that he hopes "it's just sore and just jammed, a bad jam."

Manager Mike Scioscia told reporters after the game that Trout wanted to continue playing, but did not want to put him back on the field when Trout told him his thumb was feeling stiff.

Scioscia is hopeful he will not have to place his superstar outfielder on the disabled list.

Trout has never been placed on the disabled list at any point in his seven year career.

iStock/Thinkstock(ALTOONA, Pa.) -- Less than three weeks after undergoing surgery to treat testicular cancer, Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Jameson Taillon was back on the mound Sunday pitching for the team's Double-A team, the Altoona Curve.

The right-hander struck out six in three scoreless innings in his first rehab start since the surgery.

Taillon called the outing "therapeutic," according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Taillon was pitching well to begin 2017, but was placed on the disabled list with groin discomfort on May 6. Doctors quickly operated on him, suspecting testicular cancer. It was then confirmed by a pathology report that he did have cancer.

While the young pitcher has made encouraging progress, the team's trainer warns they're treating Taillon's recovery as a day-to-day situation, ESPN reports. He has not undergone chemotherapy, but is getting his blood checked daily, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Taillon was the second overall pick in the 2010 draft, selected right after one of baseball's biggest stars, Bryce Harper. He was considered a top prospect in the minor leagues before he was called up to join the Pirates.

Through six major league starts in 2017, Taillon has registered a 2-1 record and 3.31 ERA.

Scott Clarke/ESPN Images(PARIS) -- History was made on the very first day of play at the Clay courts of Roland Garros in the French Open, but top-seeded Angelique Kerber would rather not be a part of it.

Kerber lost in straight sets to Ekatarina Makarova in straight sets (6-2, 6-2) in the very first round. Kerber gave credit to Makarova, while also admitting clay courts are not her strongest to play on.

When asked if her sturggles were more physical or mental, Kerber said both were reason for the loss. Kerber became the first top-seeded woman to lose her opening round match at the French Open in the professional era.

Phil Ellsworth/ESPN Images(INDIANAPOLIS) -- A scary scene for Indianapolis 500 pole sitter Scott Dixon. On Lap 53 Dixon went airborne after contact with Jay Howard. Dixon's car ended up flipping, hitting the inside fence and retaining wall in Turn 2, destroying the vehicle.

Miraculously, both Dixon and Howard walked away from the crash and were released from the infield care center.

"I'm a little beaten up there, it was a bit of a rough ride," said Dixon, the 2008 Indy 500 winner. "... I think when you make those decisions, which way to go with the car, you're hoping Jay there is going to stay up against the wall."

Dixon also said he felt bad for his team that this was the way the race ended after all the hard work they put in.

Chris Graythen/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) -- Japan's Takuma Sato has won the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500.

Driving for Andretti Autosport, Sato, 40, held off three-time Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves of Brazil by 0.2011 of a second, with Ed Jones coming in third.

The win marked the ex-Formula One driver's second victory in IndyCar racing-- five years after he crashed on the final lap of the race trying to defeat Scotland's Dario Franchitti.

After celebrating the win by dumping a bottle of 2 percent milk on his head, Sato said it was a "fantastic race."

"It's beautiful, you know...I grabbed something I left over in 2012 and thanks everyone I can't thank you enough for everyone's support."

Hunter Martin/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) -- Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Bunning died overnight at the age of 85, the Philadelphia Phillies announced Saturday.

Over a 17-year career, Bunning pitched for the Detroit Tigers, Phillies, Pittsburgh Pirates and Los Angeles Dodgers from 1955 to 1971. He was one of only 18 Major League Baseball pitchers to throw a perfect game in recent times. In 1996, the nine-time All-Star was chosen for the Hall of Fame by the Veteran's Committee.

He was the second pitcher to record 100 wins and 1,000 strikeouts in the American and National leagues.

— MLB (@MLB) May 27, 2017

After his baseball career, Bunning turned to politics. He became the only member of the Baseball Hall of Fame to serve in Congress.

The Kentucky Republican retired from the Senate after two terms, but he served 12 years in the House. He did not seek re-election in 2010.

Amana Images/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- One New York City police officer may want to trade in his uniform for a basketball jersey.

Officer Garthlette James was on duty Friday in the NYPD's 50th precinct, which covers several neighborhoods in the Bronx, when he stopped in front of a basketball court, a now-viral video shows.

He then asks for a ball to attempt a seemingly impossible shot from outside the basketball court.

"We're going to make it. Trust," he says in the video to naysayers.

After three dribbles, the 29-year-old officer fires off the shot from the sidewalk -- and it goes in.

Cheers erupt from the court, the video depicts.

The officer, who has been with the department more than five years, celebrated with a huge grin.

See the shot in the video below.
